Too many drugs?

Could you be on too many drugs?

Answer the following 10 questions to assess the risk of your taking a mixture of drugs that is of more harm than benefit to you. We will email you a record of your answers along with your RxISK Polypharmacy Index.

The higher the number, the more important it is that you have a conversation with your doctor.

Read more about the problems of polypharmacy in a post by Dr. Dee Mangin, the David Braley Nancy Gordon Chair in Family Medicine at McMaster University.

  • The RxISK Research Team at McMaster University's Department of Family Medicine is working to make this tool even more useful. May we contact you in the next few months to ask you a few questions about your experience? We will not give your email address to anyone else.
