Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

I have anxiety after smoking weed and my vision has gotten worse. Is this normal?

Not unusual

While most people feel relaxed after use of marijuana, some feel anxious. There are many different strains of cannabis; some are more stimulating & some more sedating. Also, sometimes "weed" can be adulterated with other chemicals. No herb or medicine is equally good for everyone & marijuana may not be suitable for your system. The blurred vision is likely due to muscle relaxation. See my comment:

Treating the Depression/Anxiety with Psychotropic medications plus Cognitive Therapy, is more beneficial in the long-run than Self-medicating to treat symptoms. Schedule appointment with Mental Health Professional. U will be glad u did.

Does smoking weed work well as additional treatments for problems of depression or anxiety?

No

Marijuana
You are just trading one problem for another. Smoking cannabis brings with it all the problems of smoking tobacco. The "better" feeling you get is just one of intoxication. You are masking your underlying problems not treating them. Many studies now indicate that chronic cannabis use puts you at greater risk for schizophrenia as well. Work with you doctor to find a good mediction for you.

Ive been smoking weed for 8 years...i now have anxiety attacks and eye spasms. Is this related ?

Challenging

Anxiety
The psychoactive ingredient of marijuana, delta -9-THC and related cannabinoids create the euphoria and pain relief afforded by MJ, but like all other drugs, can have side effects. Try stopping for a couple of weeks to see if abstinence reduces the anxiety attacks and eye spasms. You can always resume puffing and see if the symptoms return. Try cutting out coffee and "energy" drinks too.
