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.
