Will smoking weed while taking metronidazole and fluconazole have a side effect?

Will smoking weed while taking metronidazole and fluconazole have a side effect?

Yes: Weed will have side effects, with or without other drugs. Weed is a psychoactive drug and messes with your brain. Just because it may be legal, does not mean that it is harmless.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.

Interaction: Doxycycline and cannabinoids drug-drug interaction profile is poorly documented in the medical literature.

Can I take celexa after smoking weed? I was persc.10mg but only want to take 5mg. I also am taking 1/4 klonopin (clonazepam) 2x a day. After smoking I feel bad!

Can I take celexa after smoking weed? I was persc.10mg but only want to take 5mg. I also am taking 1/4 klonopin (clonazepam) 2x a day. After smoking I feel bad!

Depends: Celexa and Klonopin (clonazepam) are not contraindicated. However, you should really consider taking these medications at the prescribed doses. A 5 mg. Dose of Celexa is below the standard dose that demonstrate efficacy. As for the marajuana, you are actually undoing all of the positive effects from the medication by smoking. So net neutral. Hope that helps!

Is smoking weed bad for you?

Is smoking weed bad for you?

Yes: Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy. Weed is illegal under U.S. Law, so one can be thrown in jail and/or convicted of a crime. Having a conviction has bad side effects, such as problems getting a new job or the inability to enter canada for a vacation. Jail has its own dangers such as getting beat up or sexually assaulted.

Is smoking weed considered that bad for you?

It depends: If you have bipolar mood disorder or schizophrenia, marijuana can aggravate those illnesses. Children and early adolescents often are unsettled by the drug's psychological and behavioral effects. Otherwise, the major risks in healthy adults are lung problems and loss of energy and motivation in very heavy users. Some data suggest lower sperm count and weight gain, but usually not enough to notice.

What are the effects of smoking weed while on medications?

What are the effects of smoking weed while on medications?

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.

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes 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.

I feel pain in my ears after smoking weed?

Coincidence?: Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy. Weed is not needed for a normal life, in almost all cases (there are rare exceptions). Ear symptoms may be a coincidence or may be related to the smoking. If the ear pain never returns after one quits smoking, there probably is no problem. Otherwise, one's primary doctor can evaluate.
