Medications/Insulin

May I ask how meds people are on including insulin.
It seems I need to take I take Janumet(Januvia and Metformin combined), Jardiance, Plus I take long acting and fast acting insulin.
When does it become too many meds?
Just curious. My body has demonstrated over time I require all this to keep me where I need to be. Finally do have a regime that I think will actually bring my A1C down under 7.5
