Brief Answer:
Yes it can be taken but side effects should be considered

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Although both the medicines can be used together but there is some risk of increased sedation and anticholinergic side effects which should be considered. The side effects include dry mouth, urinary retention, constipation and postural hypotension which can be caused by both hydroxyzine as well as amitryptiline.

I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
