I am writing you the answer which may take a few minutes after reviewing your question.

Thanks for your patience.

Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 7 days ago.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, both medicines can be taken together.

However, they can cause gastrointestinal upset and gut flora disturbance.

You should start probiotics and Metamucil along with it.

Take Mylanta Gas and Aleve for pain abdomen.

Take OTC Pepcid AC if you feel nausea.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.
