Male. 21. 250lbs. Prescribed. Anxious as heck. I know, I know... do whatever your doctor says but can I take them at the same time and sleep? I'm so worried about the whole "CNS Depressant" aspect of it I can't trust it. I'm so afraid of going to sleep and never waking up. Please help.

Take a deep breath. You will be fine. Unless you are drinking (DON'T DRINK!) or have some other mitigating factor, that clearly your doctor does not see or (s)he would not have given you the prescription, your odds of having a problem are non-existent.
All of my medications have that interaction. I don't drink, which could easily trigger a problem. I don't overdose, which could possibly trigger a problem. I don't have any other medical problems that could trigger a problem. My doctor is not the least bit worried and I am 39 years older that you (I do weigh less).
Take it easy, read a nice book, watch some TV, play a video game, meditate, but relax. Everything is going to be fine.

Hi Anxiousguy2013... I understand about being afraid about taking the meds together to sleep and not waking up. So what I recommend to you is to call a Pharmacist and ask them if it is safe. A Pharmacist or your doctor are the best people to ask this question and by asking them, you can be totally sure that you were given the best advice!
I hope this helps you!!
Good luck to you!
