Not advised: This can be a dangerous combination, potentially causing significant excess drowsiness, dependence on the medication, decreased mental function, and/or damage to your liver. Please be sure to consult with your physician directly before taking this combination of medicines. There are likely safer ways to help you sleep. Best wishes.
