Customer Question

I am questioning all the medications my friend is taking. Are these all necessary. He had a heart attack last year. He gets lightheaded, sweats, has passed out for a very short time, not knowing what happened. I may not be spelling these all correcty
Lisinoprial 20mg bid
Fsosorrlmono 60mg at nibht
Simvastatin 80mg bid
Hydrochlorot 25mg daily
Famitidine 20mg bid
Clpidogrel 75mg daily
Metoprolol 100mg daily
Vit D2 1,25 mg daily
Dr. wants to put him on Ranexa 500mg daily. I truly feel some of these can be eliminated. I am not a doctor, but I feel some of these med are doing the same treatment.

What is your normal blood pressure on a day to day basis?

Also, do you have acid reflux?

Finally, the second med (fsosorrimono) is not coming up. Is that a typo?
