Amitriptyline & Sertraline... together?

Postby Charlie28 » Wed Oct 07, 2015 5:49 pm

Hi there

I've recently gone back on sertraline - an SSRI - and want to take an amitriptyline to help get a good night's sleep. Is it safe to take one? Is anyone else on an SSRI and have ami for help with sleeping occasionally?

I take 100mg Sertraline daily plus 30mg Amitriptyline each evening - my doctor is quite happy with the combination and the only downside is no longer being able to use triptans for migraine.
