My Mother is 96 y.o. diagnosed of Chronic Stable Angina, of AODM at age 80 with essential hypertension. She has a recent episode of lung infection treated with decongestant and antibiotic. She is on multiple meds. such as Vastarel MR, Pritor Plus, Simvastatin, Neurobion, Minidiab. At such age could these meds. be cut down gradually to substitute with alternative therapy? Or which drug should be cut out of her med. arsenal?

At her age and with such health conditions, it is best to consult her doctor and let him make any adjustments that may be necessary.

The Vastarel, which contains Trimetazidine and the Pritor Plus, which contains Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide, can both cause severe rebound effects, if they are stopped abruptly, which could put her life in danger.

The other thing you have to take under consideration is that her angina, for instance, may only be stable due to the medications and trying to remove them could cause it to worsen, even if they are slowly tapered.

What does her doctor advise?

My mother is 62 years old and suffered hypertension disease which caused her from stroke. She has plenty of maintenance medicines like Mini Dolcet, Gabix 300mg, diamicron MR 60mg., Micardis Plus, galvus, sinokot forte. My question, Is there a possibility that her internal organs will be affected due to taking all of those medicines every day?
