Hi,

I'm on 5 different psych  meds but I smoke so much weed I wonder if it makes the anti-psychotics ineffective.

And I have such a hard time smoking less, I am legal, medical card and that makes it so easy.

I get it prescribed for anxiety. I feel it just causes anxiety.

I really hate this drug which is supposedly harmless and non-addictive because for me thats not true.

It's messing with my life. I can't stop smoking. Sorry for the  rant, but it was good to just say this. Fuck THC!

Why don't you ask your doc to stop the prescription? If you can't get it, you won't smoke it.

ETA: You would not be the first or only person to experience pot-induced psychotic symptoms, so your smoking habits could well be impacting the efficacy of your AP.

Thanks for replying, Gearhead and yeah, good idea cuz something has to be done.

I really feel addicted and have anxiety first and foremost but also psychotic features.

Thanks for the reply.

 

EDIT:Just read the article and yeah, it rings true for me that cannabis caused my psychosis .

Agree with gear. My husband spent some time in a legal state, yeah, brought it home. Supposedly a strain that was for inducing sleep, had my heart racing for hours, and I did feel psychotic. I swore that stuff off forever. Stick with meds. Best wishes.

Thank you, whoever you are out there. It's just not good for MI and it can cause it. It's not for us. Peace out.

I haven't tried it in a very long time, but I smoked a lot as a teenager. I don't suffer any psychosis however when stoned as a teenager the hallucinations I got were so real they terrified me. I remember spending about 3 hours one night thinking my body was turning into concrete. No one ever wanted to be around me when I smoked because I used to make them imagine strange things (like that). I often wonder how much smoking so much of it in my teenage years had an effect on my level of anxiety now. It never made me tired. I was always completely wired while high. I quit in my late teens and now the stuff just scars me enough that I would never go back to smoking it again.

Um, not exactly sure of your reply.. "whoever you are"? I've been a member of CB since 2005. No shit it's not good for MI, that's what I was saying.

I agree with all of you here.  I used to LOVE weed as one of my many addictions but it did make many of my BP symptoms worse sometimes.  It could calm me down sometimes and other times it would make me so paranoid and anxious I could not stand it.

Seems the various strains can have wide-ranging effects on my brain as well so it's impossible to tell what any strain might do to me. To make it worse, weed always leads me back to porn which is a HUGE addiction of mine so I can't have one without the other really.  Good thing I live in a backwards state where I can't just go get some at the store or clinic.

Weed and MI don't mix (I say...look at my sig!).  Studies are pointing towards depression and psychotic symptoms being potentiated by mj.  I wish I could get myself to quit smoking.  It IS psychologically addictive for SOME people, yes.  And I wish the average joe would fucking understand and acknowledge that, but no, they keep pushing the myth that it's never addictive.  I have HORRIBLE psychological withdrawal symptoms when I try to quit cold turkey...I became suicidal within days while I was in HAWAII, FFS.  So I smoked it illegally and man, was that nerve wracking as f.

I hate it.

And it will be available to buy as easily as liquour and much easier than cigarettes July 1, 2018.

That's how Canada ended up with a Liberal majority.. There've been some amusing posts on The Beaverton About it.. Ontario's most hated premier is in charge in Ontario, regulating, I believe.. Just for amusement, because in Canada, this could honestly not be satire. We're so Canadian it's hard to differ satire from real.. (Such as the man that got drunk and swam to Detroit says he's sorry.. that did happen..)

Ontarians forced to hang out with Kathleen Wynne now that she’s their dealer

The entire province of Ontario has resigned itself to hanging out with Kathleen Wynne for the next few years while she deals to them.

“God this is always so awkward,” said Sudbury resident Tim Greaves, as Wynne settled in on his couch. “I only wanted to stock up before the road trip and now I’ve gotta make stoned small-talk with the Premier. Just make sure hockey is off or she’ll stay for the whole game.”.... Read more

My mother keeps on pushing for me to try it, usually because “it’s supposed to be amazingly effective for autism” or similar bullshit. Not interested in ever touching it. I’ve read too many research studies on it and am well aware that it’s far from the harmless medical panacea that the general public seems to believe it is.
