Mildly hypertensive, wobble while walking, on Vertin. Prescribed with Renerve, Eravol. Do I require these?

I am 84 years old, non-diabetic, mild hypertension otherwise quite normal. Only complaint I have is I wobble while walking (not steady) for which I am taking Vertin 16 mg thrice daily. My doctor has prescribed me Renerve 5 amp ATD once in 3 days, Vertin, Eravol, plagerise and Dorep. Could you tell me do I require all the heavy medication?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

What is meant by heavy medication? – The dose? The number of drugs?
There appear to be many mis-spellings in the names of the medicines....
Assuming near-sounding names, each one has a different mode of action...
They are alright for a short term... they appear to have been given on presumptive diagnosis.... If you could get investigated extensively and arrive at an exact diagnosis (which is cumbersome and not cost effective), a single specific drug could be chosen...
The treating doctor alone can suggest based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
