Yes, there definitely could be a connection. There are many prescription medications that can make someone sensitive to the effects of the sun and heat.

The Amitriptyline you are taking is very well known for causing sun sensitivity and it is probably compounded by the other medications you are on, such as the Oxycodone and the Codeine in the CoCodamol.
