Does vaping effect my medication? Because since I started I notice my meds aren’t working as well.

Nicotine

    It definitely could, I'm not a doctor so I don't know for sure how everything works, but I know nicotine affects your brain and can definitely affect your mood, attention, and impulse control which could counteract medication. It's a brain altering chemical so it would make sense that it could change the way your medication would work. Quitting vaping/smoking is always easier said than done but it might be a smart idea, or at least trying to cut back. But again, that's easier said than done.

      thank you for your insight. It makes sense, and I’m currently trying to quit but it’s so incredibly difficult.

    Vaping what? I doubt a tobacco vape would have a noticeable impact on your meds but there is a greater likelihood that THC vapes could have an impact, but of course you should talk to your doctor about it.

      nicotine can interact with meds. THC vapes are certain to cause moderate to major interactions.

    it all depends on the medications and doses i believe, but it definitely can. bring it up to a doctor or psychiatrist.
