Yes: The combination should be tolerated. I would watch for drowsiness, sedation, and dizziness. Avoid alcohol while taking the medications. Always be aware of anything seems different since all patients can react differently to medications

Probably: There may be a tendency to reinforce the sedating side effect, which probably can be managed with dosage modification
