PaxilMike: Paxil and THC


Recommended Posts

I’m slowly tapering off Paxil.


Does anyone have experience with antidepressants and marijuana? I’m thinking of trying a full spectrum CBD oil. I’m also wondering what the effects would be if I tried marijuana brownies.

I have no experience with this, and don’t even know what I can get here in Florida.

Hi @PaxilMike and welcome,


We don't generally recommend trying new substances during this, since it can make things worse. Sometimes a lot worse if we're unlucky. The only two things we recommend are omega-3 and magnesium, starting with one at a time and at a low dose. That way we know what's potentially causing problems.


Personally, I did try a cbd oil at one point with almost no THC for my anxiety mainly, while I was experiencing a lot of withdrawal symptoms. It is legal where I live. I was very careful with the dosage, increasing it very gradually. I think it's hard to say what will help or do harm to each individual, since it seems to differ so much in this specific situation. Here is a good topic about it:


Cannabis, marijuana, hashish, THC, & CBD (cannabidiol) or Hemp oil
