Dear Friend
thanks for writing.
i think you are on correct medications, if you can keep your BP under control with them. you didn't mention your age. i would only like to see one statin in that prescription (you can discuss this with your physician). Moreover you did not mention if you underwent ECHO and carotid doppler to look for any source of embolus. since you are still symptomatic i would like you to see a neurophysician also.
please feel free to discuss further
