Brief Answer:


Detailed Answer:


I have reviewed this information fully about marijuana and all reported medications. There is no risk in taking them together.

As of date, marijuana has not to be reported as a major contraindication to any prescription drug.

The highest level of warning has been for therapy to be well monitored when in combination with certain drugs.

None of your reported medications falls in this category.

I wish your husband well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
