New Study Warns Middle Aged People To Watch Their Step
In this study, Yale researchers looked at 13,000 cases of people who had fallen and found that falls are not only a concern for people over 65 but also for people in their 50s, especially in those taking certain medications like muscle relaxants, prescription opioids and benzodiazepines like Ativan or Klonopin, which millions of Americans take for sleep or anxiety. Other risk factors include alcohol use and illicit drug use. While there are programs designed to prevent serious falls in the elderly, this study suggests interventions should also be considered for people in middle age.
