Amitriptyline & Melatonin?

Posted by Jay on May 01, 2003 at 03:36:46:


Anybody know anything about mixing a low dose of Amitriptyline & Melatonin (25mg and 1mg respectively)?

I have been taking Amitriptyline for sleep now for 3 months and it works 'ok' i.e. I sleep but not without waking up many times during the night. Overall, I would say I'm doing ok sleepwise, but there is room for improvement.

All that is said about mixing the two meds is: "May cause excess drowsiness" (now that may be a good thing, eh). In looking at the packages, there is no warnng of taking these two together - there would be I guess if it was relevant (?).

Just wondering if anyone had any experiences...

Btw, I am doing everything non-medicine wise to aid me sleep: excercising, eating well, sticking to sleep routines and times, identifying stress-factors, etc. Sleep just doesn't seem to come naturally for me.

cheers & hope people are finding sleep,
