Your mother has been prescribed medicines for her cardiac problem. However, i do not undestand, why she is takink pentid 400 regularly as it is an antibiotic-has she suffered from rheumatic fever in the past or has rheumatic heart disease? Other medicines are safe to take and have to be taken on regular basis. They do have some side effects but you need`nt bother yourself with them if she is taking them under supervision of a doctor. There i no mention of her diabetes medicines. I hope she is on treatment for her diabetes also.
