[Psychotropic medication of elderly patients].
Tokyo, Japan. In Nihon Rinsho, 2012
Drugs medicated for elderly patients show different pharmacokinetics from young patients, because of change in the makeup of bodies, decrease of albumin, increase of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, hypofunction of metabolism, and excretion by aging.
