No big prob: See no significant risks for interactions. The drugs you were given for the most part are for anxiety.

As above : All medication can have side effect , but we take them when we need them. Medication that r written by u prescriber it make more sense to ask him /her about the safety issues . That way u show them u trust and appreciation . I am not aware of any drug interaction among these medication . However, people reaction can vary. If u notice any adverse event talk with u prescriber.
