Adderall and Marijuana

If someone smokes one pack of cigarettes a day, takes a 20mg XR of Adderall (adderrall) a day, and smoked marijuana and cigarettes most nights for the past year.  Welbutrin and marijuana were also taken for a month with no Adderall (adderrall).
What are the drug interaction affects on the brain and the body?

Obviously, misuse of any of the drugs you mentioned would be detrimental. You should see a doctor regarding your use/misuse of these drugs. Every person is different and may react differently.

Wow, you're covering the gambit with this description. I kind of hope you're joking. You got opiates, (wellbutrin), amphetamines (adderall (adderrall)), hallucinogenic (pot), and nicotine tossed on for good measure.

I..woudln't no where to begin. Lets just say you should hope that short term use won't leave any lasting side effects.

What kind of mental side affects would you expect to arise from this kind of case?

WOW..I am not certain anyone here can answer that for you. There are a lot of variables. There are no medical doctors in this forum. Just a bunch of addicts helping each other to get clean and stay clean.

I still say that you need to go to the doctor. A think a good check up is in order.

I don't think even a medical doctor could answer that.  I'd need to know which of these your still taking to predict. You're still smoking the cig's, wellbutrin and pot?

If so, I'd guess those would wipe out any emotional side effects from the adderall (adderrall). But You'd probably have periods of lethargy and mental "slowness", as well as some sporadic memory loss/lapses.

Let me guess...you were given wellbutrin to help with stop taking the adderall (adderrall)? Are you still on it?
(The pot probably helped with the side effects of the adderall (adderrall)????)

It makes you paranoid as ****. I've been taking Adderall (adderrall) 30mg almost everyday for the past 2 weeks. After i take Adderall (adderrall) i get a craving to smoke ganja. Without the Adderall (adderrall) i smoke every other day, might go 3 days without pot every now and then. When im on adderall (adderrall) i feel like i need to smoke, to make the rest of my day more interesting. I'm really trying to quit, well no im not, but i want to..because it will make me feel more energetic and focused throughout the day. I just cant choose which to quit, maybe i should just cut down. using pot and adderall (adderrall) doesn't seem like a good combo..i'd like to hear other's stories who use adderall (adderrall) atleast every other day and smoke pot like 2-10 times a day. lol..

I've been taking 20mg of adderall (adderrall) daily for the last two years AND smoking 2 B-hits each night.  My two year daily consumption of these two drugs ended about two weeks ago when I realized that I could no longer function...even at the most basic level.  I did acquire a masters degree with high gpa in that two years and kept up in a high paced intense job, but in the end (including last six months of school) I was a vegetable from consumption and was seriously slipping in my responsibilities (it was showing).  In short, my cumulative experience at the end of the two years "was":  Absolute loss of motivation - just wanted to sit and zone, inability to focus beyond the surface of any one thing, inability to multitask even simple things, inability to speak about anything with any depth, complete loss of short-term memory, intensified relationship issues, gloom doom and depression, irritability, loss of personal identity, intensified paranoia and anxioty, overwhelming fatigue and want of lengthy sleep, compromised judgement, boundaries, and moral compass....  I could go on...  There's a lot of background to my condition, believe me I know these drugs well, especially the combination.  I believe while there's a great euphoria and perceived elevation early on with combined adderall (adderrall) and weed, there is a severe penalty for this in the long-run.......and it ends in "vegetable state-of-mind".  I believe the weed was the key issue with my final condition, the symptoms I describe above are very much weed-centric, but the adderall (adderrall) combined absolutely intensified and excellerated the weed symptoms to such a degree that I honestly thought I was losing it...  I quit doing both drugs about two weeks ago with intermittent adderall (adderrall) alone and I've been feeling aweful, absolutely aweful and low....really really concerned for my ability to continue to function, I'm still coming down from this and I'm sure I will be for some time.  I do have an attention deficit issue and I do think that adderall (adderrall) helps when taken as prescribed with balanced life style.  Adding pot to the mix really launched me, but in the end I've paid the price by feeling like a vegetable and not wanting to progress my life anymore, literally feeling like death and doom was coming any time...  I've been scared.  Since I stopped smoking I feel better and I think I will continue to be on the improve and hopefully get the inspiration spark that I once had and cherished in myself.  I think I caught this problem just in time.  I'm 41, I'm headed for a significant life change as a result of my experience with weed & adderall (adderrall) combined...  I have to make the change, else I will surely decline.  I only hope I can climb out of this successfully...  I'm rambling, and this is all said very swiftly, I could say it much better and more thorough given more time... but wanted to simply do a brain dump (as my brain re-activates)...  I hope this helps clarify the effects this combo has...  I'm glad you asked this question because I wanted to vent about my experience.

How can i e-mail you or how do I use this thing? I need to speak with someone who has been through this I need to know if my boyfriend will get better... he is in what you call the 'vegitable state of mind' and he is 'confused'.

How can i reach you I really need some hope.

I have taken adderall (adderrall) on and off for 5 years. Honestly, it has been more on than off. I started buying it from a girl in class my junior year of highschool and am now a junior in college. I have smoked weed on and off since I was a freshman in highschool, again more on than off. I am trying to stop taking adderall (adderrall) currently because it is slowly ruining my life. My freshman year I took 60 mg a day and drank two redbulls (caffene interacts with adderall (adderrall), intensifies it) I had a 3.4 GPA and partied hard EVERY night til 4 am would get up at 7 am and never miss a class or an assignment. By the end of the last semester, right around when Brittney Spears shaved her head, I was feeling like I was going insane too. I honestly had to hide the magazine of my roommates with Brittney and her bald head on the cover to stop thinking about how insane the world and I were becoming at least to my adderalled out mind. I remember calling my mom one day, telling her about 10 things I had done before noon and then complaining about how I could never get it all done I was falling so far behind and how I didn't know if I could even do it anymore. It was awful. I took the summer off from the adderall (adderrall) and even quit smoking weed for a while after a classmate took too many drugs and hung himself. I went to Ireland and didn't touch anything but of course alcohol at the end of the summer. Yet I was excited for school to come so that I could be superwoman again and feel great, not to mention loose some weight (I was never the least bit fat without it but have always had a distorted body image). When school came I did alright for the first semester than failed miserably the second. I still have a 2.9 GPA which is sad because I could not apply to nursing school this semester as planned because you have to have at least a 3.0. Before drugs I was always a straight A student. I have always been an overachiever but the bad kind. The kind that sees black and white, all or nothing. I have to get an A or might as well just get an F. HORRIBLE way to think but somehow I can't seem to change. I also have this problem where I NEED  a guy one that loves me and pays constant attention to me. Then I purposely create problems and seem to unconciously beg for attention so much that the guy gets annoyed or that he gives it to me and I no longer enjoy the guy because they are no longer a challenge but are instead an annoyance. I don't know if I will ever have any hope. I have cut out all relationships. i don't think that there is a single person that truely knows me. I have been this way for a long time. Its a sad way to live and I want to know how to change.

You're seriously ridiculous if you think this combination will make you slow. Yes, people do die from this combination but it is the alcohol that will actually kill you. Since marijuana acts as an anti-nausea agent, your body gets conflicted when you have alcohol and marijuana in your body in excess at the same time. Alcohol poisoning is much more likely if you drink yourself silly and then try to smoke a bowl which is similar to the likelihood of death from a cocaine and heroin mixture. These combinations literally confuse your mind and mostly your heart as to whether or not they should slow down or speed up; it's like you're pitting them against each other and your liver is the ultimate referee on who is the winner. Alcohol will kill you faster than most other substances(unless you overdose) as it is processed as actual poison when it enters your body and your precious liver sees it as such too. Alcohol and opiates and acetaminophen (go figure tylenol could be harmful) will destroy your liver faster than any other drug out there. Also, I am not advocating illegal drug use but please attempt to convey some form of legitimate information/
