There is some evidence for taking the nutrients you list as possibly helpful for depression and other mood disorders.

However some neutriceuticals can interact with medications through the Liver P450 enzymes metabolism which in some cases are impacted by both. I have read this about curcumin/turmeric for instance. I have not investigated fish oil, magnesium, co-Q10 for these interactions. I have found that high doses of some B-Vitamins (often recommended by Naturopaths) increase my anxiety. But everyone is different, and these seem to be a common add-on to AD therapy.

Most articles on supplements as add-ons to medications say "check with your Doctor first", but most doctors have no information on these. Some will just say "avoid" because of this.

I would suggest if you're going to add supplements, first do a google search for interactions with your specific meds, then add just 1 at a time and waiting several weeks before adding another to ascertain which, if any, might be causing adverse interactions.

Magnesium citrate (and some other forms) can cause diarrhea in some people (did with me). I now take Magnesium Glycinate or Bisglycinate which is much less likely to do this.
