    I take 1 30mg Aderall XR in the morning on perscription. I was wondering, I have looked it up and used the search button, if it is safe to smoke weed throughout the day like right after I take the medication and while its working?

    I have heard it can cause some mental health issues but I was just wondering from anyones experiance who takes it most days by Dr advice if they smoke weed on it?

    Someone who really isn't me had been very recently prescribed 10mg of Adderall XR (recently as in he had no tolerance, making him very much like the typical crammer that uses addy) and said that smoking weed made him extra "stoned". Stoned being a sink into the couch feeling. Of course this was when he was only in possession of mids, if that's what your into. He can not speak on the account of loud or skunk, however the stories below all pertain to the use of loud.

    Now, I have been prescribed adderall since he was 6 and has smoked on countless occasions. I have never had any problem. I even went so far as to measure his heart rate only to find that it was not even elevated. Although, to be fair, since I have been on Adderall for so long SWIM's resting heart rate during the middle of the day (while on Addy) is around 65ish, or that of an average human being and swim's body seems to be accustomed to it.

    I did a lot of arduous research on this a while back because I am very prudent when it comes to his safety and I do not recall ever reading about any bad interactions between the two.

    In reference to weed making adderall useless, if I use adderall to study but finds himself done studying but the adderall not done working, I has found a consensus amongst friends of friends that weed not only neutralizes adderall, but in fact overpowers it and allows them to fall asleep if they lay down shortly after smoking. However, if they stay up past the duration of the high, the insomniatic effects of adderall will come back, however the concentration effects will not. Weed kills the concentration and temporarily holds the wakefulness at bay for an hour or so.

    Farbunkle says that this is extremely safe - that is, no more dangerous than taking the amps alone. It may be counterproductive, however, as most take prescriptions like these for attention issues.

    I find that when he mixes the two he doesn't get as high, the adderall keeps him more alert and takes over the two. It's still a good combo, safe too.

    AFOAF would smoke weed on Adderall decrease the nervousness of the drug, but some may experience more anxiety, to each his own.

    I just was scripted Adderall today (40mg daily), and the first one I burned today lead to a mild panic attack. Heavy sativa smoke. I was on 4mg of klonopin and 40mg celexa as well.

    The thing is though, I have taken this combination many many times before with great turn outs. It may have been the environment like being at the club lounge being comfortable, or sitting at home with nothing to do literally which did it for me today.

    I been trying to make my klonopin last for the next week so my dose it being scarce, which may of been the reason.

    Anyways, I have had good and bad experiences with marijuana and adderall.

    My friend chiefs every time he takes an adderall. As they are polar opposites, I believe the lesser tolerant will outweigh the other in terms of effects. So he usually tweaks.

    If you seriously have ADHD , I would take your 30mg Adderall in the AM and avoid smoking pot -- it may feel good but it's not going to help your symptoms.

    I appreciate the advice however I do not feel smoking a bong hit or two increases my ADD. The bong hit or two decrease the intesified anxiety I feel from the damn Adderall.

    My dog enjoys smoking spice (synthetic pot) while on amphetamines. He says that it can be very enjoyable as it makes him hardly feel high at all, it simply makes him feel way more speedy. The only thing you need to concerned with is your heart rate, as both amphetamines and spice usually will increase it. He's not quite sure if pot elevates ones heart rate as much as spice does as he doesn't often smoke pot because he doesn't like how long it lasts. Especially after the peak is over and he begins to just feel tired and uncomfortable and cannot fall asleep. With spice, he has much better control over how long he is stoned for as it it only lasts 20 minutes tops and once it's worn off he can either take another hit or go lie down if he wants to end his night. But again, i would say the only thing you need to pay attention to is your heart rate. A resting heart rate of 100 or even 90 and over is bad for you. Overall, just pay attention to your body.

    Sorry if a bit of this is off topic.

    I didn't mean to come off as offensive or anti-drug. I have ring of fire ADHD #6 and weed does effect parts of the brain (mood) that may not really help you. Ie : laziness

    I'm not saying we're the same , I was just giving advice -- any doctor will say if you have ADHD (hell in your brain) , staying away from cannabis is a very good idea.

    I have a friend who doses 90mg IR when he takes it recreationally and here are some simple truths he has learned. First, there is no sleeping the first day. Even when he takes a few ambien he still can't sleep. Secondly, he has been using a lot of things for a lot of years and the best wisdom he ever learned was that every human body is different. What one person can handle might OD another person. Asking questions is great, and definetly study all u can before u try something new but always remember, you are different and you may not be able to handle it like everyone else. Here's why I know this. My friend was out of hydros and needed something so he started taking the adderall to curve his detox and the first day he felt great, the second day he felt great but he hadn't slept. So he tried fo sleep that night and could barely stay in bed so he got up, tinkered around for a while and went out to smoke a cig at 6 in the morn. While outside, he heard his neighbor out smoking some grass so he walked over and took a few hits to help relax him so he could sleep. This was the worst mistake he ever made. He walked home and noticed he stumbled a bit but didn't worry. He made it inside and started to get ready for bed and was sitting down and noticed he heard this weird sound in his head. It was his heart beat and the reason he didn't recognize it was because it was beating faster than he'd ever felt. Easily beating 180 beats a minute when he could check. His heart would speed up like that, make him feel like he was dieing for 90 or so seconds, and then it would slow a little for a minute then speed up all over again. This went on for 2 hours with him thinking for sure something terrible was about to go down. Just a few of the things that happened to him was severe tachycardia, mild visual hallucinations along with feeling things that weren't there, his heart definitely skipped beats and was so irregular that he was blacking out and FELT like he might have had a couple mild seizures as well. That's the summary of things but needless to say that he WILL NEVER smoke marijuana while on adderall ever again and would never suggest to anyone unless they wanted to test it in small amounts the first day while ur body still has food and sleep and ur not run down yet. I would honestly tell anyone who was thinking about mixing drugs or trying something new that its always a bad idea to mix drugs that make ur body go up and down and to try anything else before u start to go down that road. Hell, if u have nothing to do I would suggest just trying to let the drug run its course and leave ur body if u can. So even though I see many people on here and other forums talking about how they love to smoke on adderall here is 1 example of someone who had a very bad reaction and felt like he was going to die. Good luck to anyone searching for answers here and I hope you've found what you're looking for. If ur just starting on drugs my advice is to quit while ur ahead because for many people it becomes a lifelong struggle where u no longer control the drugs, they control u. And that is an awful way to live and if u think it can't happen to u or u know what ur doing, I'm sorry but ur wrong. It becomes a DISEASE that u can not control anymore. Happy hunting!

    From personal experience, toking throughout the day when on a XR adderal makes the high more controllable for me. However, i would take my adderal every day while toking no less than 3 times a day and it seriously messed me up. I started getting terrible anxiety and anxiety attacks that i have never experienced before. I dont think its bad to toke on an addy but i would be cautious to not go over board with it. I recently had to stop blazing(been blazing every day 4 times a day for the past 2 years) because i developed terrible anxiety and depression that would worsen when i was baked. This was an awful realization to come to when i realized weed was making my life worse, but it happens. moral of the story, i stopped taking adderal because i am confinced the weed and the adderal is what fucked me up and released my depression and anxiety that was never a problem for me. I also started having terrible schitzo symptoms to where i would be toking in a group of friends and i would be unable to contribute to the conversation or i would think i was talking to someone but i was really trapped inside my head. Its ashame i have to give up the ganja for now because weed was the only substance i do, but whenever any drug stops being fun and worsens your life, its time to pick up a new hobby and get back to reality.

    Pleese explain why you think Amphetamine and Cannabis are polar opposites?

    I personally like the combo. Better than combining weed with booze everyday. (As long as you don't actually do it everyday in which case it will not be as fun anymore and may get you in serious trouble.)
