Seretonin syndrome is a rare side effect, but the risk is not zero so we cannot rule it out completely. However drowsiness, confusion and rapid heart rate may occur,

If you also consider your other drugs, then you are taking quite a cocktail and this may result in increased risk of drowsiness, confusion etc

I would suggest that you discuss your medication with your doctor and possibly a counsellor to see if you can return to a more even profile of daily medication.
