Can you be on an ssri inhibitor (antidepressant- namely Celexa) and cannabis?

by HelloMD

Do the two react positively? I weaned myself off the Celxa four months ago and now am feeling huge anxiety, OCD, panic attacks and depression. Surprisingly these feelings started building a few weeks ago... when I started taking Bediol oil which contains high CBD's... in particular Myrcene. I am at a loss not knowing whether the Bediol is causing the symptoms? I have read that Myrcene in high doses can cause huge anxiety. I don't want to go back on Celexa... I was so happy to be off of it. My GP is not supportive of cannabis. Is it okay to still use cannabis for my RA symptoms and Celexa for the other symptoms? I don't want to harm my body.

As far as I know there is no contraindication to using celexa and cannabis concurrently. Try a sublingual tincture of high CBD cannabis that also contains THC. Take long walks in natural surroundings and eat healthy foods in moderation.
