I understand your concern about your mother problem.
Thank you for your query.
All medication you wrote are specific for some problem
They are essential one and must not stop without your doctor advise.
In this age low appetite is common and she is not over medicated.
she can apply calamine lotion over face and for itching levocetrizine tablet is helpful in such case.
tell her to drink more water and fruit juice.
Better to consult dermatologist for proper treatment.
