A.

Only your mom’s doctors can answer this question or maybe even a pharmacist. If your mother is having chest pains and memory loss, it is imperative that you make these symptoms known to both of her doctors immediately. Each doctor needs to know what your mother is taking and if they will not contact each other then make it your responsibility to tell them. It’s your wisest move. Take care.
