Welcome to the site.

Well it seems like you had suffered a panic attack which is also called as anxiety attack owing to the perpetuating stress that you struggle with and the chest pain was a part of the panic attack. Xanax was justifiably used for that purpose and it does not interact hazardously with either lexapro or trazodone , in fact this combination is quite often used so there is no need to worry.

I hope this helps.

Wish you all the best.
