Is it ok to take 10mg citalopram and amitriptyline together?

In brief: It depends

The safety of this combination depends on the doses of both medications, since they can affect each other's metabolism in your body.
Most often amitriptylene would be kept at a low dose (50 mg or less) and your response monitored carefully. If your doctor is prescribing and monitoring in this way, then the combination may be useful and safe for you.

I would recommend checking amitriptyline levels and EKG's at any dosage change.

Thanks, Dr. Jacobson. These would be what I meant by "monitoring."
