Dangers Of Taking Progesterone When Smoking
Hard to say: Methylphenidate is used to treat ADD. Cannabis, particularly smoking it can aggravate ADD symptoms. People with ADD are at greater risk of developing addictions and hence cannabis can present problems there as well. On the upside if cannabis is being used to help with PTSD or pain problems I could envision it along with the methylphenidate improving ADD symptoms. Advise edibles only. ...Read more
Less effective: Any alcohol consumption is not recommended since it is believed that the drug effectiveness will be lowered and your life depends on optimal benefits. Binge drinking is never a healthy thing so there's not much more to say about that. It will not mix in a toxic way or raise risk of fatal alcohol blood levels - just lessen medicine's benefits. It's understandable that you might feel like it, but... ...Read more
Will smoking e cigarettes or vaping effect birth control pills especially ones with higher amounts of hormones and estrogen?
Maybe: If the e cigs or vapor products contain nicotine then there are risks. Nicotine has known associations with the increase of side effects on OCPs especially if over 35 years old. Quitting smoking can be very hard - many don't realize the nicotine craving can be as hard to kick as a heroin addict. But - it's best not to mix the two. See your MD if you are having problems quitting nicotine! http://www.clivir.com/lessons/show/the-risks-of-smoking-and-birth-control-pills.html ...Read more
What are the medical effects of smoking moderate amounts of marijuana while taking bystolic (nebivolol)?
Will smoking marijuana while using nexplanon cause the same risks as smoking cigarettes? (Risk of blood clots)
NO, however...: Smoking cigarettes increases risk of blood clots as does taking Nexplanon & those who use Nexplanon while smoking have unacceptable risks of blood clots. Smoking marijuana is not known to have the same increased risk of blood clots as smoking tobacco, though there is preliminary evidence that regular marijuana use may somewhat increase risk of blood clots, so to be safe I would avoid regular use. ...Read more
Smoking + zithromax: No interactions are found in a large database, including a study using nicotene patches. However, that does not mean interactions could exist. There are more ingredients in cigarettes besides simply nicotene as well. Perhaps you are ready to quit smoking for the many bad health consequences it causes? http://smokefree.gov/talk-to-an-expert ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Would smoking marijuana while taking birth control pills drastically increase risk for blood clots? I know cigarette smoking is not recommended.
Nobody knows: This isn't the place to discuss the cannabis laws or to compare the risks to those of alcohol. The world medical community mostly considers our harsh cannabis laws to be ill-advised. Nobody's documented that blood clots are a risk for cannabis smokers, and we'd probably know by now if it was. Still -- why use a "recreational substance" that makes people goofy? It's your choice. ...Read more
Yes: Why would you want to either. There are no indications in a normal person for either of these actions. ...Read more
I read that your chances of conception decrease approx. 30% if you are smoking while taking clomid (clomiphene). Does the same apply for nicotine patches & clomid (clomiphene)?
Not as much: The decrease in successfully conceiving with regards to smoking is believed to be attributed to its toxic effect on the oocytes/eggs. There are many different toxic agents in a typical tobacco cigarette, most of which have the potential to affect the eggs. With the nicotine patch, many of these other toxic agents are avoided. Of course, discontinue patch once nicotine patch is no longer needed. ...Read more
What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?
Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health. Smoking tobacco or weed creates the same dilemma for lung health -inhaling partially combusted botanical material laced with chemicals. Equally, cardiovascular health is compromised by using either. Infections occur more frequently in smokers too. So quit both & try not to rationalize their use. ...Read more
Variable: Weed itself varies. What you got before may be different from now. Also, individuals have varying sensitivities. But there may be a synergistic effect of intoxication: they get too strong. But there is also the metabolism: weed has some metabolic pathways that may be the same as your meds, thereby making weed and your meds either weaker or stronger. Unpredictable, and therefore unwise. ...Read more
What are the side effects of consuming alcohol while taking herbal supplements like those in Advocare MNS Max 3?
Interactions: Those interactions are probably unknown. You didn't say how much you drink, and too much isn't really good by itself, let alone, mixed with 'herbs.' Herbs are not regulated by the FDA to be safe or effective for any condition. In fact, I am pretty the label says that they are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any condition. There will not be any scientific studies to prove they are safe. ...Read more
