No, not safe: either or both can increase blood pressure, you are under treatment for hypertension as well, please arrange to see your pcp or an allergist to adjust your meds, precribe other meds accordingly, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, if you have seen one already and not convinced check a second opinion, it's your right, goodluck
