    Cannabis and Paroxetine

    Hello,

    I was recently prescribed Paroxetine and I am an avid marijuana smoker. I was wondering if there are any side effects I should worry about when mixing the two? I started smoking to help with my anxiety and depression, which is why I was prescribed the medication. Is it ok to take the medication and still smoke pot?

    Did you tell your doctor you smoke pot when the med was Prescribed? You may want to ask your pharmacist.

    Hello, I wouldn't recommend it, I had a friend, who combined pot with his meds, it was for anxiety, and he became very aggressive, and suicidal, he called the police, told them he had a gun, and tried to get them to shoot him, his mother, ran outside, to explain what he was under, and what he had planned to do, they used rubber bullets and brought him in unharmed, he no longer is combining his pot, what helped though was being put on probation, for his action, he found help through counseling, here is a website, they can direct you in a holistic way - they did for him, they are a chrisitan based counseling center, and they can direct you in a better direction.
