For sleep aid, patient with severe insomnia  you dr. had to choose between prescribing Amitriptyline or Trazadone or Flexeril, (cyclobenzaprine hcl) which one would you choose? and how would you monitor it?

No: That combination is a bit excessive to take together. Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a good drug but is of limited use if the muscle pain and spasm are chronic.
