I just wrote a whole long response and it got deleted!!

The gist of my response was there might be an interaction with buspar & sertraline (increased levels) but less so with mirtazapine, lamictal & olanzapine. Lithium is metabolized by the kidneys so I don't think there would be an interaction.

I'm sure more data will come out, as the use of CBD becomes more widespread.

Personally, I wouldn't stop CBD - especially if you precieve a benefit. If you are concerned, you could reduce CBD and re-introduce it slowly - taking notes of any increase in side effects from other meds.

For example, if you ate one grapefruit a day (every day) it would not be a concern. However, it may mean you need to take less Buspar. When they say "avoid grapefruit", they really mean avoid *changes* in your level of grapefruit consumption.

Similarly, if CBD has a grapefruit like effect, its not that you can't take it, more that it might mean the doses of other meds need to be adjusted.

Bottom line ... do you feel any benefit from CBD?
