Welcome to HCM
Your mother basically suffering from Hypertension,Obisity & Dyslipedemia. She is taking medicines for these condition.
Pregabilin with Methylcobalamine may be she has some kind of peripheral neuropathy? and with chronic medical co morbid condition a masked or a liitle depression and Anxiety is always possible and very common.
That is why she is advised to take a low dose of Escitalopram and clonazepam. These are not for seizure problem.
But treating Physician only can explain exact reson to prescribe the above said drugs.
They wiil have beneficial effects I hope.
All the best
