Severe drug interactions and potentially inappropriate medication usage in elderly cancer patients.

    Specific medication classes have been deemed potentially inappropriate for older adults due to high risk of adverse drug events. This medical record review study uncovered significant rates of drug–drug interactions and use of potentially inappropriate medications in cancer patients older than 65, consistent with prior studies. The authors suggest that strategies to improve prescribing in older adults are needed.
