Can I try CBD for sleep/anxiety while taking Primidone for ET 50 am/50 pm. Concerned about cyp450’s. Also I’m 8 months off a bad Paxil taper and doing poorly in my mind.

I have been taking CBD for almost 2 years. It is important to know that CBD has interactions with other drugs, leveraging them. For example, when I started to take CBD, I was on Vimpat. My doctor at that time increased CBD and decreased Vimpat little by little. So, every time, my doctor increased the CBD, she also decreased my Vimpat dosage a bit. as the CBD would automatically increase my Vimpat dosage in my blood So, it is important to talk to your doctor before starting with CBD as it also might have interactions with Primidone. .
Nowadays, I am just on CBD without any other AED or sleep medicattion. Feeling much better!
I’m hoping that it could help me sleep and help me with my depression anxiety anxiety with severe Paxil (antidepressant) withdrawal…
I wouldn’t try taking CBD oil with Mysoline without first discussing it with your neurologist. They don’t get along well. Like @santosh said your Neuro may want to decrease your Mysoline.

@rosa66. I totally agree with @jakedduck1. Though CBD is a natural drug, it is still a drug! Talk to your doctor first.
One thing I forgot to mention, my current doctor does not recommend full-spectrum Medical Cannabis which contains also THC and other cannabinoids. For anxiety, I understand that pure CBD is the best.
Thx….I won’t…too afraid
