Plan to use "permanent renewer" detox kit to detox myself from marijuana. Will anti depressants interact with it? I take 10mg of cipralex daily.

Dr. Rotchford, you say that using medical marijuana for treatment of diverticulitus is dangerous because it's addicting. Can you explain more on that?

Another opinion: I'm not Dr. Rotchford but it is true that marijuana can be addicting. However, the incidence of marijuana addiction is quite rare and the vast majority of marijuana users do NOT become addicted. There is a much higher incidence of addiction to most other drugs including prescription narcotics. See http://tinyurl.com/pqn2ujk and http://tinyurl.com/ol3z3a2 ...Read more

Is smoking marijuana during radio iodine treatment safe?

Unknown: If you are being treated for thyroid cancer, i would not suggest using marijuana, since it does have some effects of suppressing immunity. There is no evidence that it would interfere with the radio-iodine or make it work any less well, but i would abstain for several weeks to be on the safe side. If you are being treated for hyperthryoidism or grave's disease, i don't think it is a problem. ...Read more
