This monograph is the author's modified dissertation. It provides a comprehensive summary of epidemiological aspects related to rational geriatric prescription, pharmacological changes in the old age and their impact on the different therapeutic values of medication. The work draws attention to the growing importance of geriatric and gerontological knowledge, the demographic aging of the population and specifics of regional geriatric prescription. The textbook also treats the insufficiently respected concept of medication potentially unsuitable for old age. The monograph links the knowledge of applied geriatric pharmacology with pharmaco-epidemiologic approach, necessary for rational individualized treatment. This is a handbook of functional and safe pharmacotherapy in old age intended for all medical staff who deal with prescribing medication and adjusting the medication routine of the elderly sick.
