Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

I have run your medications through a medical database available to physicians to check interactions between all your medications.

Here are the medications that are safe to continue taking:
Proloxin 10mg
Lexapro 20mg
Benztropine 0.5mg
Aspirin 81mg
Omeprazole 20mg
Tolerodine 4mg
Senna 8.6mg

I would seriously consider stopping tramadol and Flexeril. Both these medications are known to worsen memory and thinking and these side effects are worse when they are taken together. I would talk with your doctor about stopping these.
