I agree with Maria. NO doctor ought to prescribe ANY meds, let alone a bunch of them, without carefully explaining what they are, what they will and won't do, how to take them, etc., and making sure you understand. And if he didn't explain to you what diagnosis he made, that would be negligent.
Without knowing what the diagnosis was, and whether it was competently made, I can have no idea whether these are appropriate meds, or how ill you are.
What you list are an antidepressant, a vitamin pill, a sedative, and another antidepressant. It sounds an odd combination.
If you were not complaining of anxiety and depression, I don't know why he would select these meds. If you WERE complaining of anxiety and depression, I have no idea why he did those bllod tests, which are not about those complaints.
If you are seeing a GP PLEASE try to arrange to see a specialist psychiatrist, who will be better able to assess you, make a good diagnosis, select effective treatment, and explain it all to you, and don't hesitate to ask questions until you understand. It sounds as though youm may well be depressed, a condition which responds well to treatment. But as this seems to involve problems with relationships, too, it would vbe very adviseable to include counselling in the treatment, as drugs alone cannot help you to cope with such problems
