It is known that is an ambiguous phenomenon in medicine. There is no generally accepted definition of the concept, and approaches to the interpretation of the essence of the category in question are also different, since polypragmasia, being vital for certain diseases, can become extremely dangerous in certain conditions of the human body, as well as negatively affect the health of patients of certain age groups. In particular, elderly and senile patients, often in a state of comorbidity or polymorbidity and taking a significant amount of medications (both prescribed by a doctor and without one), are at risk of a possible deterioration in their health. Accordingly, the identification of problematic aspects of polypragmasia in the development of comorbidity in elderly and senile patients, as well as the identification of ways to reduce the negative impact on the state of health of extended drug therapy is quite relevant in modern conditions.
