No, because they are combinations of the same meds: you're getting a LABA and an ICS in both, so if you use both you're double-dosing on both meds; not recommended. Talk with your pulmo about taking both of the am the same time. My guess is that one was prescribed and then the other by a different doc. Happens a lot. You need to take one or the other, not both, unless your doc specifically prescribes both and has a good reason that makes sense to you.
