Sounds like way too many meds to me.

I have posted a lot around here about my wife and her death from a seizure disorder a year ago, at the time of her death she was taking more than 12 different meds for bipolar and epilepsy.

I have been told by a number of people that "polypharmacy" kills. Everyone has a different metabolism, medicines that you take are broken down in your system differently, think of your body as one big test tube - you might take one medicine and have it break down differently in your system than something else, or it might combine with something else and produce something completely unexpected in your system.

I tend to think that less is better, I would ask your doc to cut back on some of the stuff.

Just me writing, am no pharmacist or person of medical training.

Wish you the best.
