No results found - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
While it maybe ok to mix the two, you need to be aware of the effects of them both. They both effect the central nervous system by slowing it down. So it slows your breathing and reactions down. So use caution especially if you are elderly or not able to get around easily. Do not operate machinery or drive or the like until you know how they may make you feel. It may make you sleepy for example.
Did the same doctor prescribe them both? Always best to be under a doctors supervision especially when dealing with such drugs.
Don't take more than prescribed and don't take more often than prescribed.
Hope this helps,
