  • Can Atarax be taken while on Elavil (Amitriptyline)? What doses are safe?

    I am currently taking 25mg of Atarax at night and 25mg Elavil (neither make me sleepy, by the way). I have had no relief as of yet and, after reading that people usually take much higher doses of Atarax for IC, I was wondering if anyone here takes, for instance, 50mg Atarax and 25mg Elavil?

    Thanks!

    I take 25mg of atarax (hydroxazine), and I take 50 mg nortiryptaline. I took 50 mg of amitryptaline for over 1 year. It helped me sleep but 50mg of amitryptaline is tough to take. It knocks you out, but makes you feel like a zombie in the morning. Are you dealing with alot of pain? ARe you a new IC patient? Is pain your main problem. Amitryptaline gave me retention. The theory it helps with pain so you can sleep but also keeps you from peeing as often.
