Dr B :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer. I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

There are no drug interactions between these 2 medications, and you may take them together safely without worries or concerns

JACUSTOMER-dkdkiobm- :

Thank you, may I add that it is Amitriptyline HC. Does that make a difference?

Dr B :

No, it does not make a difference

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

JACUSTOMER-dkdkiobm- :

I have extra heartbeats but I do not take any medications for this condition. Will the amoxicillin and amitriptyline HCL have any adverse effects on my heart?

Dr B :

If you have extra heartbeats you need to discuss this with the person who prescribed amitriptyline, because it may cause abnormal heart rhythms. Amoxicillin will not affect your heart

JACUSTOMER-dkdkiobm- :

So, it is still ok to take these two medications together?

Dr B :

Yes, it is ok to take them together

JACUSTOMER-dkdkiobm- :

OK, thank you for your help. Have a good morning.

Dr B :

You are welcome, same to you.
