Brief Answer:
these are mostly for bp

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

Lisinopril and metoprolol are for controlling the blood pressure, melatonin for sleep, which in turn reduces the pressure and pantoprazole is for hyperacidity in stomach. These will prevent her from getting admitted again for high BP.

Hope this answers your query. I will be available for follow up.
