Beers List, Not De Beers

I know, when us girls here anything that sounds like diamonds, our ears perk up. If only for curiosity's sake! At Duke University they have come up with a list of medicines that may have potentially harmful effects on the elderly. They have named this the Beers Criteria Medication list. Don't get lost and surf on over to the DeBeers site, that will take you to some nice jewelery, but won't get you the information that you need. Especially worrisome about this list is the ability of some of the medications to cause thinking problems. So if you have begun on a medication, you may want to check it against this list and find out from your primary care MD if any adjustments are necessary.
