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

      @Rainclouds 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.

      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.

        @Rainclouds just regular nicotine vapes, I don’t do THC

      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.

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