Sounds like my 2nd visit, I had high cholestrol, hypertension (high bp), and was diagnosed as depression and with PTSD. Left with 6 different meds and was told to stop and pick up a bottle of aspirin to take daily too. Now I am down to just my Head meds through the VA. I suggest taking your meds to your civilian doc and let him do a physical on you and verify the meds, you may actually need all of them, verify what can be taken with each other and what needs to be taken seperately.
