I've recently started taking Lexapro for depression and i am a regular smoker of a marijuana-like legal drug called Smoke Plus which is available all over Ireland in your local Head Shop or Hemporium and i would like to know if there are any side effects of mixing the two drugs, i know that there is rarely any side effects when mixed with maijuana but Smoke Plus contains different ingredients, i would be so so greatfull for any advice, thanks!!!
I would be curious how long you have smoked salvia for and if you developed a depression or an anxiety after this and thats what the lexapro treating. Most people smoke salvia for the hallucinagetic effects or the mild relaxing experience.. People can and do have very,very bad experience with this herb including bad trips and uncontrollable movement and also develope depression and anxiety after prolong use. I believe you are seeking or trying to treat something inside and maybe by using smoke plus you tried to self medicate.I dont know you and your exact motivations for this but I have seen people using herbs even nutmeg have very bad experiences. Mixing the lexapro with the salvia could have an enhance effect by producting to many neurotranmitters such as lexapro or dopamine which I assume the smoke plus is probably effectting. either way do your research and becarefull of the so called safe herbs. We find out years later that they do indeed cause harm and mental deficiencies after prolong use especially if used everyday. I am curious about you and hope you give more information about your use of smoke plus and why you where prescribed lexapro. It sounds like something else is underlying and this is no way a judgement on you, believe me, i write so people hopefully can gain insight on themselves and hopefully come to a better understanding of why we sometimes do things. keep in touch and feel free to contact me and please do your research. Literally I have seen people eat like a half a pound of nutmeg to trip and it was scary. I am not a fan of lexapro either but thats another story. Keep us informed. I google both for you and when ever you take psychoactive ingredients you have to be carefull. I have found nothing specific of the two in combination, But smoke plus had some scary side effects that included bad trips and involuntary muscle movement. The incense sounds cool and maybe low dose smoking it. How much do you take and also these head shops you never know just how much the active ingredient is in it, they just want your money. let us know, I mean it. I care about you and your safety, you are a brother in this world to me and I believe in support no matter what are journeys are. Love, Peace, Joy, (you might be better with just plain old maryjane)
thank you for your responce oktoday, much appreciated. its nice to know someone cares.
i've been smoking Smoke about 2 years now i think. i do smoke it a little too often. i would always have a joint if i feel as if i need to forget how i'm feeling at the time and it takes me a long time to get to sleep if i don't smoke cuz my brian just refuses to stop thinkig obsessive negitave thoughts like the world is gong to end or after i have children i'll be ugly and my boyfrined wonlt want me anymore and stupid stuff like that and i just can't sleep. and it works pretty well for helping me relax when i start to get too emotional even though i know that a quick fix only makes things worse for me. i'd smoke just under half a 3g bag a day. to be honest with you i wanted to quit when i went on to lexapro but my boyfriend is an even heavier smoker than me and he refused to smoke outside due to the cold weather, he says its not fair that i get an instant happy pill and he is left with nothing ( he has had a very rough 2 years due to serious family problems) he doesn't understand that lexapro takes weeks to kick in. and its so hard to quit if your in a room full of smoke. smoking for me is an escape. altough i don't think my depression is caused by smoking, i do think that it is making me want to escape more and more. and i know thats not a good thing. but when i start to get out of control with my temper i feel a joint is the only thing to slow me down because any time i get very angry, its at myself and i end up hurting myself.
i feel like there is something slowly eating away at me from the inside out. i feel worthless, i have zero self esteem due to people i love verbly putting me down, its anly a joke to them (irish humour) but hearing "your stupid" and "your a failure" etc, all day doesn't make me laugh. on my birhtday my dad kept telling me how i looked like shit and that i've done nothing with my life, everyone but me got drunk and i ended up having to clean up broken glass from when my bf got drunkenly sad and smashed a pint glass. i was so worried that something would go wrong on my bd that i didn;t go out but having a family meal turned out just as bad as anything i thought up. my boyfriend also lost his sex drive but went through a stage of obsessivly watching porn 24/7 which made me feel so horrible about myself. he has stopped doing that now but i still keep thinking he is looking at porn even though he's not. i also have zero motivation or interest in anything that i love. i can't eat because when i get upset, i'm no longer hungry and i feel sick to the stomack. my mam keeps spending money she doesnt have and my dad is sick and he keeps getting drunk and coming home telling my little sister that he is going to die soon and would you rather i move out and shit like that. and i can't stop them from doing this because they refuse to listen to anyone. they are right and everyone else is wrong. i miss having friends. but i don't feel i can be around people anymore. i feel like i can't trust anyone because in my experience people don't care about anyone but themselves. when i go home i sit down and i don't feel like i have any energy to even lift an arm. i can literally sit down and stare into space for hours on end without moving. and lately thats getting so much worse. i feel like i can't stop "doing nothing". i feel so spacy and so stupid. i make stupid mistakes eg: yesterday morning i accidentally turned off the freezer and distroyed hundreds of euros worth of food. and i make stupid mistakes like this every day. i don't trust myself to do anything right. im always wrong about everything and get constantly corrected which makes me feel retarded ( excuse the language) i just don't want to exist anymore. the only place i have to escape to is my own head but all i think about is why i'm so stupid and slow and crap at everything. i really am starting to scare myself because i've been having so many suicidal thoughts, it seems to be the only thing that makes me stop crying. and my boyfriend is starting to get sick of my behaviour, its not fair on him having gone through so much and then having to look at my sad head all day. anytime i try to talk about the way i feel my mind goes blank and i get so frustraited with myself. i just don't see any reason to be alive anymore. i just think a year and a half ago i thought "things will get better" but they only got worse so i dont see the point on thinking that anymore.
i'm sorry about the long rambling post but i'm not really good at this stuff.
thanks for listening
