had to stop because of tongue swelling and sensitivity. I am now on VIIBRYD for depression. Can I take both?

Hi, not a good combination I'm afraid! There can be major interactions between these 2 meds. Were they both prescribed by the same doctor? You need to consider a different medication, speak to your doctor about this. If you type your 2 meds in to the interactions checker on this site you can read all the info about taking these meds together.

I started taking 50mg of amitriptyline at bedtime and 40mg of Viibryd in the morning. It took about 2 days before i started feeling the interaction of the 2. So I stopped both for a couple of days. Then i went down to 10mg of Viibryd in the morning (along with my Depakote) and the 50mg of Amitriptyline plus 50mg of Vistarel at bedtime. So far so good. My only issue seems to be a slight tremor, mostly in my hands (but I don't know if it comes from any of the meds).
