I partake in neither. Weed always made me more paranoid and anxious than I already tend to be and alcohol amplifies depression like nobody's business....and makes me horribly sick combined with my med cocktail.

Back in 2009 I was having some severe anxiety issues and I couldn't get in to see my psychiatrist. Hubby procured some pot for me. It definitely helped! Then of course I admitted it to the psych when I finally got in and they sent me for drug testing. They were surprised when it came back clean. Apparently, you smoke pot once and they assume you're a stoner. I really only needed something to get rid of the feeling that my heart was going to explode out of my chest.

Hi all!

My meds have been cut way down, I just take 1 klonipin at nite and 2 advils. The latuda I take with supper. I sleep 10 hrs. Had bad leg cramps last nite.
I sneak the wine in, honey is such a sweetheart, I feel bad if he found out. Gonna have to cut down anyway, we are moving, going to have to taper....
I do smoke weed at 5 pm and in the evening. I like to have wine during the day, not good. I'm aware.

We always eat when we do our thing.

Have a great weekend

I've had a few people suggest marijuana to me, but I will probably never try it. I have a hard enough time keeping focused on reality without it. I am on so many medications that are counter indicated for alcohol. I had two daiquiris 7 years ago and blacked out. I can't remember the night, though by all accounts I was very...pleasant.

On almost all of the medication I've taken, it says alcohol can interfere with the effects. I've had terrible problems with Topamax and alcohol. I've been sober for 3 1/2 years; it just isn't worth the risk. And I tend to try and self-treat with alcohol.

I stay away from weed and other drugs, too. It's enough that the meds I take can alter my mood/state of consciousness. I have enough trouble deciding if it's ME that is acting that way or the drugs making me feel that way.

I've tried pot just 3 times (in LA where it's legal for everyone) and it did help me calm down, relax and get rid of a migraine. I would do it more but I hate the way it tastes (I vaped it) and it could be bad for my schizophrenia. I don't drink very often, but when I had a sip of coquito (Puerto Rican eggnog) when I first started Latuda, I could barley walk the next day. I just was so out of it with one tiny sip. Then, last month (still on the Latuda), I had like 5 gin punches and was fine.

Hi all!

I hope everyone can get involved with this. Weed does help when you are hyper.
