Beers Criteria


The Beers Criteria (or Beers List) provide a list of medications that are generally considered inappropriate when given to elderly people because these medications may pose more risk than benefit. For a wide variety of individual reasons, the medications listed tend to cause side effects in the elderly due to the physiologic changes of aging. The criteria were created through consensus of a panel of experts by using the Delphi method; they were originally published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 1991 and were most recently updated in 2003.
