In reply to Does pot lessen the effects of Zoloft?, posted by September on February 15, 2003, at 22:58:04
> I'm 15 and haven't tried pot... I plan to sometime soon... I'm diagnosed with clinical depression from a chemical imbalance... but I beleive I'm bi-polar. Anyway, I was wondering if pot would interfere with my medication, I take Zoloft, 50 mg doses (I think it needs to be increased or I need to switch to something else). If anyone could get back to me on this, it'd be much appreciated.
Marijuana (and alcohol, for that matter) is a depressant, it will have a "depressant" effect on your CNS . . . the therapeutic effect of Zoloft is usually intended to "counteract" depression . . .
