Answer
Dear Mr Kumar,
As regards the tablets, one is an antibiotic (taxim), one is an anti allergy (cetzine) and Pantapezole is an antacid. Yes, they are safe in themselves, but if she is taking any other medicines, just check with your treating doctor for any drug interactions that may take place.
By and large, they are commonly used drugs, and do not interfere with healing of cataract surgery.
