Went to dentist and got lidocaine, septocaine, and nitrous oxide. Is this a normal combination?

In brief: Yes

Septocaine onset is rapid, Lidocaine last longer but takes longer to act.
Nitrous causes relaxation, so makes anesthetics work better. Good approach, in my opinion.

In brief: Yes

Using local anesthetic and nitrous oxide together usually increases the chances that the patient will be more relaxed for their dental appointment.
