It is acceptable

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Amitryptiline do not cause any interference with metabolism of alcohol in current dosage and you can take safe dose of alcohol along with it.

Considering your age and amitryptiline the safe limit for alcohol is 600 ml beer of 4 % in a day.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to revert back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards
