Heterogeneity is a hallmark of the geriatric population, and nowhere is this as evident as it is in geriatric pharmacotherapy.
Variable changes in organ and receptor function with aging make it difficult, in fact, to formulate rules that apply to all patients in the geriatric population.
Comorbid disease and coadministere d medications, which generally increase with age, add to the complexity.
Certain determinants of drug response in younger patients continue into old age.
This is true, for example, of genetic endowment related to cytochrome P-450 (CYP450) metabolizing capacity.
Lastly, other processes, such as drug absorption and glucuronidation, are little affected by aging. As a general rule, however, all other pharmacological processes change with aging.
