e.g. medications for conditions for high blood pressure, diabetes, mood/mental health conditions, chronic infections, Parkinson’s, ADHD, Asthma, and COPD.
OTCs, supplements, and herbals have the potential to interact with prescription medications since they are metabolized and cleared from the body through the same mechanisms as prescription medications.

Changes in memory can sometimes be associated with medication-related problems.
Changes in mood or behavior can sometimes be associated with medication-related problems.
