Hi any studies done on using HEMP OIL with PROZAC to help with anxiety without interference with Prozac, I read if MAY interfere with absorption as they both go through the liver. Thanks Michael

Hello Michael (@watermelon), thank you for posing your question to the mental health group. While we can’t offer medical advice on this website, we do have the value of many members sharing their collective experience and listening ears. You pose a complex question. I tried doing some research myself and will continue to do so, but came up with some of the same conclusions you mentioned. Unfortunately, since hemp oil, marijuana, and CBD oil are all relatively new, studies are just now becoming more regular as science is working to catch up with some of the new legislation across our country.

@watermelon, it is always best to keep your medical provider in the loop with any medication questions. I understand that it is a bit more tricky right now when discussing any marijuana-related questions. Have you brought this question up to any of your medical staff? If you feel comfortable sharing, what are you hoping to gain from using both or just one?


Justin, what I am trying do is use as little of the Xanax until the Prozac kicks in , I tried the Hemp Oil it did work ,however after trying it I spoke to my DR he said he could not condone it , there is not enough research , I then read the article that it could interact with antidepressants and a number of other drugs as they are both absorbed thru the liver you know there is no THC in the hemp.
