Thank for asking to HCM
Looking to age of patient she is being given more than enough medicine in my opinion certain drugs should omitted or replace with some other drug particularly antihypertensive drug this could cause cough in geriatric patient certain drug should be given with some precaution "Less drug with lowest possible dose for short period" is the golden rule for old age patient, hope this information helps you have nice day.
