OK. "Stres" is not a diagnosis. At diferent times in life and for different reasons, any of us might experience "stress" or distress related to unpleasant or difficult aspects of our life.
Now, you haven't mentioned what tablets she has been given. If this is a GP, and thus not an expert on identifying and managing stress, these are probably tranquillizers of the valium / ativan family, and those would easily make her feel drowst and weak and wobbly.
As a rule, for yourself and her, never accept ANY tablets from ANY doc o pharmacist without asking for a full explanation of what they are, what the side-effects or risks might be, and exactly how to take them - and have thios written down for you if its not easy to remember. The name of the medicines should at least be written on the pill box or bottle.
You mention that she is seeing a therapist on Friday - what kind of therapist, I wonder ? If that person is a proper expert and has assessed her, ask them to explain how you can best help your mom, and what sort of therapy will be used to help her.
