J Am Coll Cardiol; 2019 May 28; 73 (20)2584-2595; A Krishnaswami, MA Steinman, P Goyal, et al

Deprescribing is an important step in the management of elderly multimorbid patients with cardiovascular diseases. This is necessary due to adverse drug reactions, polypharmacy,  and the necessity to match the treatment goals with the life expectancy. This review published in JACC in May 2019 addresses the strategies for deprescribing some cardiovascular and noncardiovascular medications in elderly patients.
