CBC investigated the drugs that as many as 1.5 million Canadian seniors are taking. These drugs, such as Ativan and Amiodarone, have been found to be dangerous for seniors. These drugs are listed on a peer-reviewed list called BEERS in the U.S., but not in Canada. The major finding of this investigation was that one out of twenty deaths among seniors that were ascribed to adverse drug reactions involved a drug on the BEERS list.
