What are the effects of smoking Marijuana while taking these medications whether bad, good or none?
15 Aug 2009
There is little documentation regarding drug interactions with Marijuana. However Marijuana is a CNS depressant (central nervous sysytem depressant) and potential exists for these effects to be additive when taken with other CNS depressants eg. Clonazepam
ie. Increased sleepiness, perceptual alterations, impaired co-ordination & reaction times and euphoria etc.
It is also worth noting if you are taking the Lamictal for a behavioural disorder Marijuana can make your psychosis worse.

I am on Lamictal & Clonazepam & I have my med. marijuana card. I have no negative side effects whatsoever. However; take note that if you do smoke marijauna make sure it has Indica, not Sativa in the pot. I had to learn the hard way. Indica relaxes you & Sativa makes you more hyper or nervous so to speak.
