Which Is Better For Sleeping Mirtazapine Or Amitriptyline
Is there a difference between mirtazapine and amitriptyline in terms of effectiveness for pain and sleep?

Most likely.: While federal regulations prohibit me from recommending the use of schedule I medications such as cannabis I can tell you that there is overwhelmingly scant evidence that its consumption with the drugs that you listed would be risky.
