Answer

According to a Drugs.com Drug interaction checker these two drugs have a 'moderate' effect on each other because they can cause low enough blood pressure to effect your ability to stand and balance. This is what they say.

MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised during coadministration of these agents. Close monitoring for development of hypotension is recommended. Patients should be advised to avoid rising abruptly from a sitting or recumbent position and to notify their physician if they experience dizziness, lightheadedness, syncope, orthostasis, or tachycardia.

Other interactions may be possible. Please check with your physician about the suitability of taking these two drugs together. Make sure your physician is aware of all the medications and supplements you are taking for any conditions you might have.
