Yes you can: Trazadone should be taken as prescribed. Adding cyclobenzapine at 10 mg will be sedating in combination, and may be equally efficacious at 5mg. Meloxicam is typically taken on a regular basis, with food. Try taking your Meloxicam in the morning, and use Acetaminophen at night. Incidentally, poor sleep can affect your testosterone levels and your risk of injury from sport. Take care.

Multiple medications: Trazodone is an anti-depressant and can be used for insomnia. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer. Both of these medications can cause drowsiness. Meloxicam is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. You can take them together, just be aware that they all can cause drowsiness.
