50mcg levothyroxine in morning for hypothyroidism - is it ok to take amitriptyline 10mg before bed? is a 10mg dose likely to cause heart problems?

Elavil (amitriptyline) 10 mg: It is safe and it should be taken before bed. A 10 mg dose would not pose any cardiovascular problems.

Nothing long term: It should not have any long term effects. If there was any effect on your heart, starting your medication again should reverse it.
