Episode 429: Deprescribing is an essential part of good prescribing – PART II

In episode 429, Mike and James continue their discussion with Barb Farrell around deprescribing. We talk in generalities, with occasional brilliant specificity, about the PPI/benzos/antipsychotics/glucose lowering medication deprescribing guidelines. In the end we come up with the astounding idea that maybe some people are on too many medications.
