hi everyone, i take 40 mg of vyvanse and notice that when i do i have a strong need to smoke; im already a smoker, but want to quit, so this is a troublesome effect, and happens with all stimulant meds. also i become agitated, irritable, easily annoyed, cld Intuniv help with these issues? Anyone have any exp with this? thanx so much!!
I am on amphetamine salt combo 20 mg 2x a day and I want to smoke constantly. i have taken vyvanse before but didn't notice it as badly then. i am a smoker usually, but i usually smoke about 2 or 3 cigarettes a day (without medicine)- one on the way to work in the car and one on the way home in the car.
however, when i am on my medicine, i actually take smoke breaks at work, smoke before and after lunch, and smoke when i get home (which i never did before) so i more than double my usual habits.
i also get easily irritated. things i could just ignore or brush off without medicine make me want to scream now. i think "annoyed" is a good word for it. everything annoys me. my roommate drives me insane when i used to be able to deal.
i also get this feeling of "blah". like what's the point? it's almost like i am boring myself, if that makes sense. i am so productive all day, then i stop for a moment and think "what is the point of doing any of this?"
I also take 40 mg of vyvanse and i smoke pot. When i take vyvanse i dont eat anything untill i smoke and have the munchies. taking it helps me concentrate but i choose to concentrate on what i want to do like leaving school every day and smoking. its not healthy being on it.... like i care but it will probably screw me over in the long run. its nice to know thAT IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS DAMN PROBLEM. i love how it makes me social for atleast a couple hours and then i usually get sudden mood swings and change my mind speraticly. after five hours or so after taking it i get depresses and anti social. smoking just helps with the after effects. but thats not the reason i smoke. weed is my life smoke forever
