In brief: In some cases

If you have narrow angle glaucoma that has not been treated with laser, you cannot take these medications.
Otherwise it is okay.

In brief: It depends.

Open angle glaucoma usually cannot be worsened by typical sleeping remedies.
Narrow or closed-angle glaucoma, or phacomorphic glaucoma, can be worsened by these remedies. You should confirm your type of glaucoma with your ophthalmologist.
