I have heard and read that its dangerous to mix the 2. my doctor says its fine.
Do any of you know? A voice in the back of my head tells me not to take it.
I love amitriptyline. I started taking it about 5 years ago for anxiety and I've been on it ever since, with a brief stint off for about 12 months while I was pregnant and postpartum. I took Zoloft during that time.
I am on 25mg, and it does make me very sleepy. It's hard to really wake up in the mornings sometimes, but it does help with the anxiety and the pain.
