If someone on 150 mg of Wellbutin & marijuana has a seizure it's probably not caused by taking them. ...Read more

You may get lucky & have no more; or you may have epilepsy & will have to make some life adjustments. ...Read more

Is medical marijuana useful to calm PTSD or anxiety in patients with seizure disorder who can't be on typical anxiety medications?
Can't say: Unfortunately, very little reliable, peer reviewed research has been done regarding the safety and efficacy of marijuana for anything, despite the long list list of conditions for which it has allegedly been helpful.
