Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

ethanol cannabis (Schedule I substance)

Applies to: Alcohol (contained in alcoholic beverages) (ethanol), cannabis

GENERALLY AVOID: Alcohol may potentiate some of the pharmacologic effects of central nervous system (CNS)-active agents. Use in combination may result in additive CNS depression and/or impairment of judgment, thinking, and psychomotor skills.

MANAGEMENT: Patients receiving CNS-active agents should be advised to avoid or limit consumption of alcohol. Ambulatory patients should be counseled against driving, operating machinery, or engaging in potentially hazardous activities requiring mental alertness and motor coordination until they know how these agents affect them, and to notify their physician if they experience excessive or prolonged CNS effects that interfere with their normal activities.
