There's a common affliction that's rampant in my practice, but it's not a gastrointestinal condition. It's called polypharmacy, and it refers to patients who are receiving a  pile of prescription and other medications. I see this daily in the office and in the hospital. It's common enough to see patients who are receiving 10 or more medications, usually from 3 or 4 medical specialists.
