The side effects of modern medicine

While modern medications have revolutionised the way we treat and cure illnesses and diseases, University of South Australia researcher Professor Libby Roughead says our increased reliance on the use of medicines in the past 30 years has had a number of negative implications for society. “We live in a society where multiple chronic illnesses are common – 40 per cent of Australians report three or more chronic conditions,” she says. “An increasing number of people are being treated with more medicines and they are using those medicines for longer. In addition, most people with multiple health conditions see multiple health providers, many of whom can now prescribe medicines. “This means there is lots of potential for things to go wrong, as different medications react with each other. It’s not all bad news though - we estimate half the harm that is attributed to medicines can actually be avoided.”
