Based on the information we have, Amitriptyline doesn't interact with oral contraceptives. The best way to find out for sure is to talk to a pharmacist or to the doctor who prescribed the medications for you.
It's always a good idea when being prescribed a medication to make sure your doctor knows about all other medications you're taking to make sure there aren't interactions. Just a little tip.
You also always have the option of using a second method of birth control such as condoms. Condoms are also a good option as they are the only form of contraception to offer protection against STIs (sexually transmitted infections).
