Abstract

The cardiovascular drugs are the most widely prescribed drugs in the elderly population. That is why their appropriate use requires the knowledge of age-related physiological changes, of the effects of concomittant diseases that alter the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic effects of cardiovascular drugs, as well as drug-drug interaction. Almost all the drugs that are widely used in the elderly population, like digitalis glycosides, beta receptor blocker, ACE-inhibitors, AT-II receptor blockers, nitrates, calcium-channel blockers, antiarrhythmic and lipid lowering agents, as well as the anticoagulant therapy require special consideration. The safer use of cardiovascular medication in the elderly can be increased by a reasonable reduction of the number of drugs prescribed, by titrating the medication dosage according to the patient's response and by repeatedly discussing the treatment plan and the necessary instructions with the patient and also with the relatives if it is needed.
