Question: can marijuanna and lamisil be mixed?

 guitarboy86 - Fri Oct 20, 2006 12:50 am

I am Male, 22yrs. old and I have been diagnosed with ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder. I've had no past surgeries but I have had stitches from a suicide attempt when I was 13. I know I have mild depression variably but never been diagnosed. I have an Uncle who is Manic Depressive. Currently I am on adderall, tetracyclin, citalopram, and lamisil. I just started the lamisil (about a week ago) and I started the citalopram about 2 days ago. I know drinking alcohol and lamisil can have very harmful effects on your liver and I was wondering if the effects of marijuanna is just as bad? I don't smoke regularly-maybe once a month- if that.

First of all, marijuana can be damaging to your liver all on its own, without mixing in medications as well.

Marijuana can relieve anxiety in the short term, but causes it in the long term, along with depression.

Depression + Anxiety = Double Trouble

Also, in teenagers, use of marijuana can be a predisposition for schizophrenia, which can be a lifelong, devastating illness.

Secondly, I'm wondering why you ask about Lamisil, specifically. This is an antifungal agent. Did you perhaps mean Lamictal, the anticonvulsant often used to treat bipolar depression?
