I am on a beta blocker, it decreases heart rates, helps lower blood pressure, is used in migraine prophylaxis ... won't interfere with the other meds listed. They won't affect any bleeding issues and won't cause the platelets to stick on anything. They have been around a long time and have been researched extensively. Don't worry
