My doc wanted me to try this combo... but I told her to put on hold. as I needed more time. She suggested Luvox 150mg to be taken twice daily and amitriptyline 75mg to be taken once in the night. Appreciate very much you comments and thank you.
I HAVE been on this combo. I'm not sure what the dosing was as it was almost 20 years ago. But I was on Luvox for PTSD and night terrors. I was still having issues sleeping. Plus I have chronic pain from a badly broken back so my dr added the amitriptalyne. I didn't have any side effects. I'm sure it's not the best thing to be on two diff meds that kinda do the same thing. But your dr went through a lot of school to prescribe you those meds. PLUS, chances are your pharmacy checks for any problems with counter interactions for your prescriptions. I'd def try it! I hope it helps! Good luck, Melinda
I take amitriptiline 100 mgs at night along with 200 mgs of luvox. I sleep fairly well but am really tired in the morning when I get up. It also takes me a long time to get moving in the morning. So I am experimenting with my doses and taking the amitriptiline around 7 pm and the luvox at 10 pm. So hopefully it will start working better for me.
