Prescribed?: Did Rx for both from the same Dr - or do they know about the other? Did you get instructions? The combo can have risks of dizziness and it's best to avoid driving or many tasks. Alcohol can only add to the risks. Be careful to have a trusted person nearby just in case of side effects. Talk openly w/ Dr's about these things when they prescribe. Best wishes.
