Want to know if there are any significant interactions between these 3 drugs

I also quit smoking last July and have put on a lot of weight and have not been able to lose it so far. I have also been dealing with a lot of depression and I am in perimenopause. I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome by an endrocrine dr. but my obgyn does not agree with that diagnosis and neither do I.
