I have no problem taking both. However, I don't recommend taking them at the exact same time during the day. My doctor recommended that I take both, but to take them at different times during the day: Rhodiola Rosea in the morning/early afternoon and Ashwagandha in the evening (as needed). Rhodiola acts like a stimulant, so I take Rhodiola in the morning 30 minutes before or after I eat breakfast. Ashwagandha has more of a mild calming effect that helps me sleep better (fights insomnia). I only take Ashwagandha with some Chamomile tea at night as needed, since I infrequently get insomnia. From my experience, it is VERY IMPORTANT to get a good quality Rhodiola Rosea supplement to obtain its energy benefits. I like New Chapter from Whole Foods personally. It's a smaller dosage but the effects are better in my opinion. Low quality Rhodiola Rosea doesn't give me any energy.
Also it is important to take a break from Rhodiola Rosea, because your body can adapt to it and it will have less of an effect overtime. I take Rhodiola for 5 days and then take a break for 2 days. I'm not sure if your body adapts to Ashwagandha (since I only take it as needed), so I would recommend researching that.
