Abstract

Elderly aged 65 or above are the age group with the highest prevalence of adverse drug events. In 2012, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) updated the Beers criteria for potentially inappropriate medications used in older adults. The purpose of this article is to address the potentially inappropriate medications and classes to be avoided in older adults and rationales provided by the 2012 AGS Beers criteria. These criteria should not replace clinical judgments, but may be used in conjunction with other clinical guides, such as the Screening Tool of Older Persons Potentially Inappropriate Prescriptions (STOPP) and Screening Tool to Alert Doctors to the Right Treatment (START), to best guide clinicians in older adults' medication management, increase the awareness of safe use of medications in older adults, and minimize medication-related problems in older adults.
