You may add it in: No problem with the combination. Just watch for oversedation in the morning and be careful driving and operating machinery.

Sleep problems: Agree with Dr. Jacobson. My question is that if you require more than a benzodizapine for sleep - have you been evaluated by a sleep medicine specialist? Just so you know, Klonopin is not actually a sleep medication - drowsiness is a side effect.
