Take Xanax .5 mg & amitriptyline 12.5mg HS for sleep. Is it ok to take st johns wort in the morning to help with positive mood?

Take Xanax .5  mg & amitriptyline 12.5mg HS for sleep. Is it ok to take st johns wort in the morning to help with positive mood?

No.: St. John's Wort hastens the breakdown of Amitriptyline and taking both will be counterproductive. If you still need something to make you feel positive, go back to your doctor and have him reevaluate your medications. ...Read more

Is amitriptyline 25 mg time released and does it change the side effects if cut in half?

Is amitriptyline 25 mg time released and does it change the side effects if cut in half?

No and maybe: Amitriptyline is an older tricyclic medication used for major depression and some types of nerve pain. It is not timed release. Cutting a medication in half can have unpredictable effects and should only be done in consultation with your physician. ...Read more

I've been on amitriptyline 10mg x1 at bedtime for 2.5 weeks now. If i see dr., and want to taper off, what withdrawal effects from this dosage?

Very minimal: If you listed the dose correctly at 10 mg, you are taking virtually a homeopathic dose, that is a very minimal amount. At this level, no need to taper, just stop. Talk with you doctor about this, but the noted dose is far too small to help any of your problems. ...Read more

I have been taking amitriptyline (10 mg) at nighttime for ic pain and help with sleep the last 31 days.  Will missing one night's dose be a problem?

Probably not: But why are you missing a dose? Did you run out of your prescription? Hoping you can get this refilled tomorrow, especially if it's been helping you. ...Read more
