The swelling if a lymph node is not because of the meth directly but due to an infection, inflammation or malignancy of your head and neck area. You need to get examined by an ENT Doctor who will find the cause and treat you appropriately. Since you are 'smoking' a dangerous drug, thought I should enlighten the effects of this drug. It may be legal in some states in the US, BUT it is very dangerous and causes the same side effects of cocaine.
Here are the side effects which could harm your body,
Tachycardia (Rapid heartbeat),hypertension (High blood pressure), vasoconstriction (Narrowing of the blood vessels), insomnia, nausea, stomach cramps, digestive problems, bruxism (Grinding teeth), increased body temperature, chills, sweating, pupil dilation, headache, kidney pain, tinnitus, dizziness, overstimulation, breathing difficulty, agitation/hypertonia, SUDDEN DEATH.

Hello im Jesse im 18 years old and I have been having problems with swollen hurting l ymphnodes in my throat and neck for the past year. I have gone to multiple doctors nd have had tests done and they cant seem to find out why. Or they tell me just to ignore it nd it will go away but I ve had this for a year now with no getting better. So its brings me to my question . I have been smoke mmarijuana for a couple years at least 6 times a day and i realized maybe thats why so I went looking online nd found and article with someone of the same symptoms who had also smoke weed for a long time . So my question is do you think over smoking marijuana for long periods of time could be causing my lymphnodes to swell?

My 17 year old daughter occasionally takes a Vyvanse (20MG) before a test. She took one yesterday morning to take a college entrance exam, and by last night she had developed a swollen knot to the side of her throat in the front that just popped up and is tender. It is large enough to see it now that she tells me it is there. Can this be a reaction to Vyvanse? She had mono about 14 months ago with no recurrence.

How do you take a child off of vyvanse that is taking 30mg? He ended up with alot of cavities that I think has to do with vyvanse...also he is losing weight and we were actually thinking about taking him off anyway but now that the cavities showed up we want him off. Called his doctor today and she never called back, only a nurse.
