Is Smoking Marijuana Safe While On Vyvanse?

My doctor recently put me on Vyvanse and I ended up smoking weed with my buddies the first day of being on Vyvanse. I haven t really noticed any difference on my mental state with Vyvanse but I do loose my appetite. I smoke weed on some occasions, but after the first day of being on Vyvanse and smoking weed I didn t do it again, even though it felt good. I just want to know is it bad to mix Vyvanse and Weed?

Hello
Welcome here.

Mixing weed and vyvanse does not cause any serious interaction but it can precipitate psychotic reaction sometime.

Be careful if you develop symptoms like agitation, insomnia, confusion state, elation etc. Consult your doctor if you have these symptoms.

Its better to avoid mixing the two.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
