Probably ok: The only potential problem would be the risk of what's called QT prolongation which can be a side effect of both amitriptyline and your antibiotic. The QT interval is part of your heart rhythm and many medications effect it. May be dose dependent. If you have any preexisting heart problems you may need an EKG. Discuss with your doc
