Not always safe: It is perfectly possible to safely take both medications. On the other hand they both have the potential to sedate and in some people the combination could cause over sedation. This could be especially true if another sedating medication or alcohol were in the mix. It is always best to review all your medications with the treating physician whenever a new medicine is being prescribed.

Imipramine: Not sure of your age or other medications taken along with these two. Best to consult your physician who prescribed them.
