Question: I take ropinirol for RLS. I recently got a medical marjuana prescription to help with sleep issues and pain associated with osteoarthritis. Is there any reason I can't use both of these drugs at the same time? Both are taken at bedtime. I'm 71 years old.

Brief Answer:
There are no major interactions.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

There are no major interactions between marijuana and ropinirol, so you can use them simultaneously. But, minor interactions are still possible, so, if you notice any adverse reactions, you should inform your treating Doctor.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
