Your pharmacist won't say anything (I took antidepressants with it, they said nothing), but depending on the doses of Tramadol and Cymbalta, there is a chance of serotonin syndrome. Tramadol can lower the seizure threshold in certain individuals. The Buspar and Seroquel won't really factor in, but the Cymbalta might.
I was on Tramadol but had to stop when I started Lexapro. I did research and could not find any anti-depressants that could be safely taken with Tramadol. I had to switch to Lortab for my pain.
