Answer

Be sure to talk to your doctor about this. As often occurs with drugs that have interactions with each other these two drugs affect the same system. Drugs.com reports these drugs have a 'moderate interaction' with each other. They are both anti-cholinergic drugs and overuse of these drugs could result in hyperthermia (high temperature), heatstroke, blurred vision, twitching, hyperactivity and seizure.

Drugs.com recommends that anyone experiencing such things as abdominal pain, fever, heat intolerance, blurred vision, confusion and/or hallucinations should immediately contact their doctor.

Be sure to inform your doctor of all the different medications including supplements that you are taking. Good luck!
