I am currently taking rexipra 15 (2 tablets) & mirtaz 15 (1 tablet) at night. Can I also take chamomile tea at bedtime or Will it cause undesirable interactions?

Dear lybrate-user, The interaction will not be fatal or dangerous. It is undesirable since you may need more dose to counteract the side-effect (alertness) of theophylline in tea. For the effect of lifting depression, you may need less dose of antidepressant. These are theoretical - practically please observe and report to your psychiatrist. She/he will adjust the dose.
