Marijuana is contradicted for me when it comes to social anxiety but it eliminated any residual generalized anxiety, depression and other obsessive symptoms. I have tried all strains through local dispensaries. I notice that if i consume the sativa dominant strains, I do very well when I am with friends as I am not usually worried about life stressors but it makes my social anxiety worse with strangers. On the other hand I experience some lingering symptoms of generalized anxiety and depression if I do not consume it. I get a very intense and not a very enjoyable experience with vaporizers or water pipes but if i smoke it through a marijuana cigerette it is a lot different and pleasant. Indica strains work a lot better when I am alone. If I am about to go meet strangers I have to stay away from marijuana as it increases my social anxiety ten folds in social situations despite being on MAOI.
during my short experience with parnate, I could not sleep and had to rely on marijuana. i have had terrible experiences with benzos or other sleep aids and even gabaergic drugs like lyrics as well as with other antihistamines like serequel. With nardil I do not stay up for four days but I still have excessive sleep disturbances and marijuana doesnt seem to help much.
marijuana can be very habit forming but breaking the habit is not that hard but then I am faced with the dilemma where I have to deal with some of my depressive and anxiety symptoms (although not as much as I would have if I was not taking MAOIs). I would choose to consume marijuana if it did not make me ... in plain words... lazy and even more hungry.
