Better not: amitriptyline interacts with most ingredients of NyQuil severe cold and flu, and can cause further CNS depression , kindly avoid the taking both medications together. Good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications and read the labels carefully, best wishes

I would not: The cough suppressant (dextromethorphan) in nyquil can interact with the sertraline to increase the risk of serotonin syndrome, a serious adverse reaction common to all ssris (such as zoloft, aka sertraline).
