Confused Brain: When you mix street drugs with medication you are creating a chemical mix that may make your situation worse. Seek help with your addiction. Find an addictionologist or an addiction counselor. If you get this under control, medication will be effective and put your symptoms into remission. I know this is a hard road to travel, but many have done it successfully. Good luck.
