Hi Vijaya,

The medication prescibed to you are mainly related to diabetes and some other medications are also there to prevent the complications associated with diabetes.
Basalog inj., gride and disfer er are all for the diabetes and depending on your requirement and blood glucose level control, there dose and number of medication can be varied.
Ecospirin is aspirin and this is given to prevent the stroke in future and this can be resposible for burning sensation as gastritis is very common with aspirin.
I don't know why thyromorm is given to you as it is mainly used for thypothyroidism.
Macpril is mainly used for hypertension, but also given in diabeteic patients to prevent renalproblems.

Thanks and hope this helps you.
