I have tried all anti anxiety meds for sleep over 10 yrs and I constantly need a stronger dose. Currently taking Elavil and Klonopin together and its working. Is it safe?
Hi, Drugs.com say there is a 'Moderate' risk:
"Applies to: Elavil (amitriptyline), Klonopin (clonazepam)
Using amitriptyline together with clonazePAM may add to dizziness, drowsiness, breathing problems, and other side effects. This may be more likely to occur in older adults or those with a debilitating condition. Talk with your doctor before using clonazePAM together with amitriptyline. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor".
Endtimes If that is the way the doctor has prescribed them it's no problem if it seems to be helping the only problems that may happen is increased side effects But if your not having any problem with this I would not worry about it. Many people end up having to do it this way just don't go over what the doctor has ordered. This is one of the good reasons to get your medication from the same doctor and take them to the same pharmacy if there is a big interaction it well pop up on the Pharmacist screen if he or she has not noticed it already. Have a good weekend Chuck1957
