Marijuana and seroquel(separately) have the same negative effects on me. Memory impairment, dissociation, intense sleepiness, feeling of dying. Causes?

Common ADE's: Or adverse drug events for both drugs. If someone is prescribing the seroquel (quetiapine), they need to know it is having these adverse (side) effects and either adjust the dose or try another med. If your doctor doesn't know about your marijuana use, they need to - otherwise they are flying blind.

What chemicals in marijuana negatively effect your body?

No clear answer: This substance has been a part of life in the US, albeit illegal, for the past century. It seems to make people happy, loopy, non-violent, and maybe dumb.
