Can I use Retin A with benzoyl peroxide?

Hello all,
I curently use Tretinoin 0.05% gel at night after I wash my face and let it dry for 15 minutes.  It's working "ok" but not controlling my oil AT ALL.  I get super oily during the day and my blackheads are not getting any better.  I am wondering if I can use my acne.org 2.5% benzoyl peroxide in the morning to help control my daytime oiliness, or will the combination be too harsh for my skin?  I am 44yrs old and worry about the bpo aging my skin, as I've read online that bpo can accelerate skin aging due to oxidation.  Is this true?

Thank you for your help!
