I just took 30mg of Amytriptaline and I have food poisoning so I took 2mg Zofran (ondansetron) and saw there was a major integration and now I'm scared. Is it ok?

I just took 30mg of Amytriptaline and I have food poisoning so I took 2mg Zofran (ondansetron) and saw there was a major integration and now I'm scared. Is it ok?
