Brief Answer:
Yes, you can take both concurrently.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HealthcareMagic.

I can understand your concern.

Alvesco is having Ciclesonide.
It is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS).

Medical Marijuana is centrally acting (acts on the brain) painkiller.
No drug interactions between Marijuana and Ciclesonide.

So both are safe when taken concurrently. However, it's(Marijuana of any form) also not recommended to take them(technically speaking)...

Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further.

Wish you good health.
Thanks.
