Yes, but: Why? Both have same action, almost, you want to try one-at-a-time

As answered by Dr. Al Hegab, but if you are taking both because you feel one isnt working, it may be that you are just not taking enough for effect. Did you maximize the dose of one adding the other? Also, usually if max doses of one doesnt one, it is best to add on another agent that works on the gut slightly differently.
