I left some of my toprol pills in my car during somewhat hot temps (high 70s) I was wondering if I should just toss them and get a refill or if they are safe to take. (they are for the physical symptoms of anxiety) Also can any of my meds cause dry mouth or chronic cough?
These particular medications you have listed can be stored at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F). (Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.) If you need more assurance the medication is OK I would suggest calling the manufacturers of the medication itself. They may have further studies regarding stability that will ease your mind.

As for the the adverse reactions, I would speak to your prescriber regarding the possibility that the Paxil is causing either the dry mouth and/or the chronic cough. With continued treatment over several weeks, adaptation to some GI adverse events (e.g., nausea) may occur, but other effects (e.g., dry mouth) may continue.
