Starnge Combination of Medicines?

My grandmother (aged 78 and diabetic with heart problems) currently residing in a developing country was prescribed the following medicines:
atenolol 100 mg
isosorbide dinitrate 20 mg
irbesartan 300 mg & hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg
trimetazidine dihydrochloride 35 mg
indapamide 1.5 mg
levothyroxine sodium 100 micrograms

Please let me know whether this combination is fine as she does not seem to be doing OK.

As I can see it, all the meds except the last one are indicated for treatment of hearth problems.

The last one is for hypothyroidism that you do not mention.

No ONE is for the diabetes that you mention.

Some of those medicines may produce side effects that need either time to accommodate to them or changes in doses/medication.
