    I've been taking Lexapro (10 mg) for about 8 months. I'm 15 years old and I do smoke marijuana, so I'd like ot know if there are bad side effects of smoking when you're on this medication. Thanks!

    Hi Connor,

    I know it's probably not something you'd like to bring up with your doctor, but it is important to ask this kind of question to a professional. In the meantime, you can check on the potential interaction between drugs here:  Drug Interaction Checker. That may help!

    We had a neighbor that died 6 months ago, he was suffering from cancer on his

    last years, ( he was 78), his doctor prescribed hydrocod/apap/7.5-325 for his

    pain. He loved to smoke mariuana since it relaxed him and alleviated his pain;

    however, the combination of this two drugs was the prime cause of his death,

    had he abstained from one of the two, according to his doctor, he may have lived

    longer; at least three or four more years.
