    Seniors taking psychotropic medications may be at increased risk for falls

    According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, seniors who take certain "psychotropic medications may be at increased risk for falls." After analyzing "22 published studies" including "79,081 participants older than 60," University of British Columbia researchers "concluded that there was a significant association between the use of sedatives, hypnotics, antidepressants, and benzodiazepines and the risk of falls in older adults."
