Does CBD oil interfere with metformin, amlodipine for type 2 diabetes
I have type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Does anyone know if using CBD oil interferes with metformin and also amlodipine for high blood presure? I am thinking about a topical cream containing CBD oil for pain in my shoulder that keeps me from a full night's sleep but am worried it might interfere with my diabetic and high blood pressure meds.

I would like to know also
Hi, @ewwprod and welcome to Connect.
Funny that you should ask that question. I was just googling interactions between CBD and other drugs last night, for me specifically immunosuppressants. I would like to try a topical CBD for pain but I won’t move forward until I have checked with my transplant team – I am post liver transplant. I wonder if anyone has any info on that.
As I said, I will check with my medical team and you should do that also. Ask either the doctor who prescribed the medications, or with your pharmacist. Although I would appreciate input from anyone else who is on immunosuppressants and has had CBD, I have come to realize that all transplant departments do not feel the same way so I go with what mine says.
I am immunosuppression and used topical CBD lotion for shingles and it improved it greatly. I spoke to the team and for myself they said use Hemp based CBD that does not contain THC.
I have a Medical Mar. Card, is it best to go to the Dispensary to get it. Safer? I have Medical Mar. Did nothing for me.
