Thanks for writing to us.
The effect of the medicines you are taking varies a lot from person to person and the level of addiction. Smoking also reduces efficacy of many drugs due to induction of the liver enzymes. You can ask your treating physician to increase the dose for the desired effect.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
