What happens if you smoke weed while on Zoloft?
I'm curious because I'll be on Zoloft and I just wanted to know what would happen when I smoked for my first time.
Answers
Don't. Marijuana can accentuate depression and make it worse. If you are already depressed enough to take Zoloft, you really need to stay away from any other drugs--legal AND illegal. Especially without your doctor saying to take them. And hanging with 'friends' that smoke pot can be hazardous to your health. Be happy.
if i remember correctly a clinically identified side effect of Zoloft is anxiety and marijuana obviously can create some sort of paranoia, so mixing the two is almost a sure recipe for serious anxiety and possibly anxiety attacks. i wouldn't recommend trying this. also stay away from alcohol while on the medication because it can make alcohol much much stronger (probably 2 times stronger).
WHY on earth would you deliberately start a habit you know will not be good for you? WHY????
