Dear Sir/mam,
The medicines that your mom are taking are given for rheumatoid arthritis. These are long term medications which can cause liver dysfunction, nausea, Abdominal discomfort stc. But swelling of the feet is generally because of a systemic disturbance ( renal or cardiovascular). I suggest you get her renal and cardiac parameters checked. Get her liver tests also done to rule out liver dysfunction. Hope this has helped.
