Can I take CBD oil with antidepressants like Prozac?

Asked 3 years ago

What interactions are there between CBD oil and antidepressants like Prozac? Can you take CBD oil with antidepressants at all?

If you take antidepressants like Prozac and CBD simultaneously, then it might lead to unwanted and irksome side effects, which might not be a good decision. With a light dose, it might give decent results but still, it wouldn't be a very safe option. To battle depression issues, a high-quality CBD oil could get the job done without side effects.

CBD and most antidepressants are metabolised by the same liver enzyme, called CYP450. CBD inhibits some of these enzymes, makes them break down these antidepressants slowly, and this may lead to increased side effects. To take CBD with any medication, you should see a doctor. Your doctor may be able to dose the medications in a way that wouldn't cause any interaction.

Always consult your doctor before taking CBD and prescription medication simultaneously! When taking CBD and antidepressants together the side effects may be amplified. Neither CBD nor the medication will have the ideal effect. It could all depend on the dose. Your doctor can recommend the best dose, and type of CBD to go with your medication.
