I am on prednisone and cephalexin for a fairly bad case of poison ivy. are there any side effects of smoking some pot while on these two?

Cephalexin isn't the: treatment for poison ivy, so they must be treating you for an infection, in which case i would recommend no smoking or alcohol especially while on meds!
