Hi 

I was giving amitriptyline 10mg about a week ago for pain and just wanted to know if there worth sticking with as a part from feeling ruff as anything the next day they also give me bad palpitations as if my heart keeps racing then hand braking. I am on bisoprol for palpitations so not sure if to stop the amitriptyline. Am also on venlafaxine for depression  and was wondering if this can clash with these
