    Thank you Pat. I read this also but my doctor says I should be okay, but to just keep him informed of any worrisome side effects. I am really only using the Amitriptyline for sleep and the Prozac for my depression and anxiety. I told my doctor I needed something for sleep because the Prozac, although it's doing well for me, it hypes me up a bit and I was having these black bags under my eyes. I told my doc I specifically did not want a benzo because after my husband's death I was on Xanax for about 7 years and when I finally went off of it, it was so hard. I went through detox actually. Some truly strange things occurred, believe me. Undecided So anyway he added the Amitriptyline for a sleep aid. I guess I'll just wait and see what happens . . . . . . . Thanks again Pat.

    This is a major drug-drug interaction when checked at: www.drugs.com

     

    So I would check with your doctor and/or pharmacy about this.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Pat
