    Hi Hollie,

    I don't know if this will help but I have a hip-replacement which has nvr been greatt (im only 35) and have been on amitriptyline for a while, my doctor wants me to go on to 10mg Citralopram due to panic and anxiety which is bad to the stage I very rarely go out anyway my GP said that I had to come of the amitriptyline to go onto this. So I now stuck with the dilema of taking the cit for my anxiety or take the amitriptyline for my hip!

    Hi Hollie, I have taken Amitriptyline for many years for pain and had no problems apart from feeling tired during the day. I am on Citalopram for anxiety now. I have not taken the two together. The GP would not prescribe the two together if it was going to cause problems. It just might be that your body is getting used to the drug. Everybody reacts differently to drugs. To put your mind at rest ask the pharmacy for advice or ring GP and ask to speak to the GP that prescribed the drug. Hope this helps.

    Elizabeth.
