Body building supplements

Patient : I take a range of supplements for body building and have been doing so for a couple of years. However its recently come to my attention i may be taking to many, as they could be interfering with each. i take Impact diet whey protein (includes oats and green tea) Creatine in the shake L Glutamine in the shake Taurine also in the shake CLA (2 before every meal) Zinc and magnesium (before bed) Omega 3 (3 capsules a day) Chromium Picolinate (200MCG) and finally L Carnitine I take them all as advised by the manufacturer, im just concerned they may counter or interfere with each other. I have recently become ill and i rarely ever become ill, are these combinations weakening my immune system? many thanks
Symptoms:  sinuses playing up, pressure in my ears, coughing and blocked nose
