Who knows/ best not: There are no systematic studies of the 2 together. So, in one sense - who knows! however, if a recommendation is to be made on the basis of clinical reasoning, i would say it makes no sense to combine these 2 medications, and a person doing so better be ready for s/e that they may not experience on either one alone. Hope this helps.

No: These meds have similar use and taking them together could be too sedating. Do not take together!!!
