Polypharmacy is the use of more drugs than are necessary for the medical management of a patient. Although in the past, polypharmacy was considered to be harmful, recently it is gaining acceptance to be therapeutically beneficial in many circumstances. Pharmacists who are generally considered as drug experts, are in a unique position to monitor and intervene in patients with polypharmacy and improve their quality of life. This article highlights the relevance of pharmacists' role in the practice of polypharmacy.
