In brief: Elder meds
You need to take all meds your body needs = your doc knows you from inside out knows what not to ad on to your regimen.
In general, avoid meds that directly cause sleep problems = some blood pressure meds, some anti-cholesterol meds, diuretics. Anything that can be used in the morning be switched to morning doses, or change to equivalent med that do not affect sleep. Avoid meds that cause dizzine.
