In brief: Different meds
Although they are both the same medicine, they are taken differently.
Tartrate is a shorter acting form meant to be taking 2 or 3 times a day. Succinate is a long acting form meant to be taken once a day. To me, it doesn't make sense to be on both.

In brief: No
they are the same drug so you should NOT take both at once
