Just a thought, might help you.

Probably the meds list can be extended as third dimension of the table. It
means now the table will not be in two dimension but in three dimension
(cube) and this third dimension will be the top surface of the cube.
Thus all info (including meds sub-list) can be visualized (and further
could be edited) in the form of a cube structure.
