Brief Answer:
No, its OK to have this much if bp is not controlled

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

These are not too much medicine and being on these medications is quite common. Actually it depends on the blood pressure level, if it's not controlled on single drug then we need to add second and third. Our goal is bp control as it's a most dangerous thing.

She should have low salt diet. You should buy one electronic bp apparatus and monitor her blood pressure regularly thrice a day for one week then once or twice a week and bp should not be persistently more than 140/90 mm hg.

Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
