Sedation: Neuro lyme disease can cause confusion, memory problems, fatigue, weakness and even seizures. The risperdal, vistaril (hydroxyzine), (hydroxyzine) benztropine ; cannabis can be sedating. U may not need both vistaril (hydroxyzine) ; benztropine if u r being treated for a psychiatric condition. Have u received IV antibiotic tx for the lyme disease? It would be better to stop smoking the marijuana.

Yes, to a degree: It's said that using marijuana with benztropine can increase side effects like dizziness, drowsiness ; difficulty concentrating. This may depend on the type; high cbd-strains are less likely to cause this. As for interactions between the others, please check yourself- you can look each drug up on drugs.Com ; read about all known interactions. But little is known about how multiple drugs interact!
