Dark brown and sticky stools, tiredness, on tamoxifen and mirtazipine. Overdosed with paracetamol and citalopram few days ago. Help?

Hi there, I am on tamoxifen and mirtazipine. I also overdosed on paracetamol and citalopram before Christmas. My poo is now dark brown and sticky (for 2 weeks) and I am feeling tired all day. Should I be concerned? I have health anxiety and so my family doctor is reluctant to run any tests other than basic bloods (which were fine last week). Thanks.
