Concoction of medicines

This comes due to a personal tragedy recently.

Though medicines are exhaustively tested for all side effects, before these are allowed by government authorities (like FDA), I do not think they are tested thoroughly for side effects when taken in combination with other medicines.

Further, how much and how many medicines should be given together should be based on the health and medical condition of a patient.

In the absence of either the ‘experience’ or readily accessible data, patients are many times given too many medicines at the same time.
