Is it ok to mix amitriptyline and nifiedipine with phentermine 37.2 mg slimming pills?

Interactions

Phentermine
Amitriptyline can cause dry mouth, constipation and weight gain and dry mouth, which would probably not help the weight loss effect of phentermine, which can also cause dry mouth and constipation.

I take 150 mg. Amitriptyline at night for anxiety and depression. Does drinking caffeine takes away the benefits of the medication?

Can add to anxiety

Depression
Caffeine doesn't alter the antidepressant effect of Elavil (amitriptyline), but it can cause or worsen anxiety. So in that sense it could counteract the effect of the medication. Low to moderate amounts of caffeine shouldn't be a problem unless you're fairly sensitive to it, but on general principles I advise anxious patients to minimize caffeine.

effects are variable. You will need to have yours checked rather than just reading about it. Discuss potential pregnancy risk of amitriptyline with your OB.

I've been on amitriptyline 10mg x1 at bedtime for 2.5 weeks now. If I see Dr., and want to taper off, what withdrawal effects from this dosage?

Very minimal

Elavil
if you listed the dose correctly at 10 mg, you are taking virtually a homeopathic dose, that is a very minimal amount. At this level, no need to taper, just stop. Talk with you doctor about this, but the noted dose is far too small to help any of your problems.

Prescribed 10mg amitriptyline x1 a day for IBS-D. I've been on it for 2.5 months, and I'm always STARVING! Anything else for IBS-D? Is this normal?

See PCP.

Elavil
Amitriptyline stops the diarrhea by virtue of its anticholinergic property but also increases appetite. IBS-D is a complex problem that has to be treated by diet avoiding trigger foods like fried food,or too much fiber. OTC drugs that sometimes help are probiotics, maalox, rezvera or kaopectate but see your PCP for further treatment.

I don't know the last medication you mentioned but otherwise it's okay. Treating the cause of your anemia will help your mood issues.

Is there any reason either Loestrin or Amitriptyline would cause tenderness on the side of each breast? I still have 2.5 wks until my next period.

Yes

Birth_control
Both drugs are known to stimulate breast tissue. Loestrin due to its estrogen effect on the breast and amitriptyline has been reported to cause galactorrhea (artificial lactation as a drug effect). You should discuss this with the doctor prescribing these.
