Not recommended: If your doctor has prescribed both of these medications for you, i suggest taking them at separate times. They are both sedating and could add to each other. Please ask your own physician about his/her intent with these medications, and how s/he wants you to take them.

Makes no sense: they are both similar drugs. It is highly unlikely a doctor prescribed both at the same time. This implies, multiple prescribers. so, no.
