Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This amounts to polypharmacy. Out of these drugs, Gabapentin and Ibuprofen (essentially pain reliever) can be eased out to my mind.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am in relatively good health (though not as physically fit as I d like to be), but over past few months have noticed my heart feeling like it is pounding with more aggressive exercise. I used to be very physically active, and am wondering if this is due to age (48) or if I should be worried about something cardiac. I am a pediatric therapist and while working with children yesterday had two episodes when bending down to pick something up that I felt quite light headed. the sensation in my chest is new and different.

Hi! My heart seems to be beating crazy fast. I m currently on 2.5mg of bisiprolol for heart palpitations. My blood pressure has been 116/76 to 107/70 in the last several minutes. I am feeling dizzy and my feet and ankles seem to be tingling/numb. Wondering if I should be worried!
