SENIORS MEDICINE MIXUPS

Rosalee Jones of Irvington, N.J., holds the medications she takes everyday at the Home Sweet Home senior center in Elizabeth, N.J., Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2006. Jones, 67, takes the pills to treat high blood pressure, reduce her cholesterol, reduce water, and to replace potassium lost from the water pills. Patients over 65, who often have chronic conditions and see several doctors, had a drug error rate nearly seven times greater than those under 65, according to an analysis released Wednesday by Medco Health Solutions Inc., one of the nation's largest prescription benefit managers.
