Call her to ask!: I'm hoping she know about all the medications you take - if not - she needs to so she can give you the best and safest care. That type of security might even help your 24/7 worries. These drugs in combo can increase side effects but as long as you watch carefully and report things to her and know what to watch for, it should be ok. Consider CBT for skills to manage anxiety too!
