Is it safe to take Lorazepam after taking Cyclobenzaprine?

I was prescribed 10 MG of cyclobenzaprine to take once at bedtime, which I have done for a few days. I only take Lorazepam when I have to fly. I wasn t going to take the cyclobenzaprine last night because I will be on an airplane today and will need to take the Lorazepam, but I did take it. Will itt be safe to take the Lorazepam (.5 MG) today around 2:30 pm? I typically take two for a flight.

My me that this med is much better than taking neurologist,who is treating me for the potential of having alzehimers, has told do not always take 2 at the same timegome that this med would be better than taking lorazepam. Particulary do to the fact that I have trouble sleeping at night sometimes. I have bipolar disorder and seizure disoeder. I take 2 1 mil gram before I go to bed. I take 5 1mg I in morning around 8AM, one at lunch which is around 1PM and 2 at bedtime. I go to bed around midnight. I usually take 1 and if I wake up and cannot get back to sleep I will take 1 more. I wake up around 5AM in the morning. I have had success withis med and it keeps me the issue of having it bother my bipolr .balanced along with taking Zoloft. I am concerned about the side effects of seizures of which I already take lamictal for the issue of having balance issues at times and just overall of taking it. My general doctor, does not think taking lorazepam is a bad choice for me. I have been taking it for almost 7 years along withw Zoloft. Any thoughts you might have about all of this? Sorry for babbling so much. After reading on I should have realized I have no extra money to pay. I apologize for taking up your time.
