  Depends on the specific medication or class of medication being prescribed. Some medications have specific concerns as regards people who are elderly as to when they should be prescribed and dosage. All of this information is on the prescription websites as well as the PDR (Physician's Desk Reference) and these concerns can then be discussed with a psychiatrist prescribing the specific medication.
