How to connect two ADP5071 regulators in parallel?


I have designed a regulator circuit with ADP5071 for 1A load but I need 1.6A load. In board I have two ADP5071 regulators. Both the regulator outputs are 5V and one has 1.4A load and other has 0.2A load.

1. Is it OK, if I connect both the regulator outputs in parallel (by shorting directly both outputs)?

2. If not, please suggest how to do parallel.

Thanks & Regards,
