I’m on 40mg of fluoxetine daily (supposed to be 60mg but managing on 40) for anxiety and depression but struggle quite regularly with muscle spasms during the night so doctor has put me on 10mg daily of amitriptyline at night time to help stop the muscle spasms but as I said I struggle with anxiety and I’m worried about mixing both medications, has anyone else had this combination that could offer some advice please?
Amitriptyline - Has anyone taken amitriptyline with fluoxetine?

Its such a small dose of amitriptyline that it shouldn't cause any issues. The main concern would be serotonin syndrome, but you are on such a low dose of amitriptyline so they shouldnt intervene with the fluoxetine.
Hope this helps.
