I've been taking generic atomoxetine for about two years now at 80mg daily. I'm no stranger to cannabis either, but any time I would smoke I would usually not take atomoxetine for fear that they would have an adverse reaction. One night, me and my friend Stewart acquired some mid-grade cannabis from a friend. I had taken atomoxetine that day, but I trusted that Stewart would call an ambulance if something really dire happened. Thankfully, nothing did.
We had a joint full of weed, but Stewart had a bong, so we took apart the joint and used what was inside. I smoked about 2 bowls and Stewart had much less, maybe a bowl. The cannabis was an indica, so I had some fun walking around and having everything feel smooth while my body felt heavy. I sat down on the couch and felt calm and relaxed. The high was like any other indica high and there was no obvious bad effects from the atomoxetine. For about an hour we played a game on his computer. I remember the game being so fluid and vivid. After that we played around with a laser he had for maybe an hour. I took the laser and put it underneath a glass with some water in it, making a cool effect on the ceiling. We did that for about an hour. I don't remember what we did next honestly. I do remember laying in bed for some time, then smoking more, then going back to bed and laying around more. I smoked about a bowl more. Eventually I fell asleep. The next day I felt refreshed and well rested. No side effects then either.
Overall, there was nothing noticeably bad from the combination of atomoxetine and cannabis. Although, it is possible that at the time I had smoked the cannabis the atomoxetine dose had worn off. Next time I will try to smoke a couple of hours after I take atomoxetine.
