can you take amitriptyline and co-codamol together?

Probably: Co-codamol is a combination of Codeine and acetaminophen. Neither of those medications are absolutely contraindicated with the use of amitriptyline. You may find an increase in sedation with the combination, but that is to be expected with two sedating medications.

Unlikely: This is codeine. I suspect that the withdrawal would be on the order of weeks at most. The other symptoms may be part of your underlying neuropathy.

Yes: While these medications can potentiate each other, they are usually safe to use together. Consult your prescriber to be sure it is safe for you.
