Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I’m upping my dose on amitriptyline to see if it helps me sleep as not had sleep for over a week. The doctor has prescribed me Zopicione 3.75mg can I take both my extra dose plus a sleeping tablet?

Thanks for the details

You can take these together but there is a risk of increase sedation,drowsiness or confusion

I suddenly stopped sleeping 1.5 weeks ago on 10mg of Amitriptyline which I think has stopped working that’s why the doctor has now put me on 20mg but I only took 15mgs as I’m so sensitive to medication I felt really dizzy this morning so worried about taking the sleeping tablet also.

I think you should first try with the increased dose of Amitriptyline

Hopefully that will solve your problem
