Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

The combination treatment, you are on, is a very efficient and proved to be good. There is no interaction between these combination exists.Drug interactions can occur with other medications.
But every drug has its own side effects. Sleep disorder is not so common with these combination. But some type anxiety or depression may likely to lead to sleep disorder.
