Polypharmacy alert!: You need to check the spelling of medications you use; learn both the trade name and the generic versions. A pharmacy dispensed Clomiphene to my patient instead of what was prescribed, clomipramine, it went undetected for three months. Her ovaries were 3x normal size, hormones were off the chart and she thought she was going insane! remember "kiss"? Serotonin syndrome is a serious risk! google it!

Yes.: You are taking many meds which could in aggregate contribute to the serotonin syndrome. Might be nice to see if your meds could be consolidated or reduced.
