Question: Hello doctor. About a year ago i started smoking pot everyday and tripped on LSD occasionally. by occasionally i mean 2 tabs every month maybe. the first 5 months i didn't have any problems other than decrease in motivation. but lately, my whole thoughts are different and it's scaring me. for example, at the beginning, i started analyzing everything to the extreme. I started to have deep thoughts about presence of god or the universe... not only regular deep thoughts, but also questioning if life is only a dream? and i became extremely critical about everything and started thinking that whatever i learned until now is just a lie cause people are delusional. before i had more hope because i thought god always hears me but now i sometimes think that humans are just like animals and worth nothing. most of my thoughts have nothing to do with me being successful in life or me thinking about my family or my school... moreover, this is the part which scares me so much. I started to guess if im crazy or not which is terrifying. i never ever had these kind of thoughts before. i was great in school, in work and in everything. but now, everything is changed and i think im going to be crazy after all. I know that marijuana is amplifying my negative thoughts because i mostly think deep thoughts when im high on weed, but on the other side i dont want to quit weed, because I have a lot of anxiety and i dont want to be addicted to anti anxiety medications and im only 21! so my question is did using of lsd and marijuana gave me mental illness that i dont know about? and what is your TRUE advice? should i quit marijuana and ask for doctor's prescription? or marijuana is safer than prescriptions? P.S: i smoke cigarettes everyday for the past 4 years. thank you

Brief Answer:
Medicines are the answer

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

The thoughts that you are developing is due to cannabis. Infact taking cannabis can precipitate many different kinds of psychiatric illnesses in cluding schizophrenia. It is in no way safe.
On the other hand there are plenty of safe medicines available for anxiety and many of them are non addicting. Take the example of paroxetine. Its a wonderful drug for anxiety without addiction potential.
Medicines are clearly the answer to your question without any doubt.


Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling. I am 59 and also need some testing done for symptoms of inherited disorders, and I have some diagnosises already. I need treatment too. Can you help us?

Hi, I'm a 21 year-old male with erectile dysfunction (I've been experiencing erectile dysfunction for over 4 years). My bloodwork shows a deficiency in total testosterone hormone, with a surplus of free testosterone hormone, as well as low thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism). I'm 5'10" and weigh 225 pounds (I'm overweight). I am taking Abilify 15 mg to treat schizophrenia. My erectile dysfunction started occurring well before starting treatment with Abilify. I frequently have trouble waking up in the morning, and after waking up I often times don't feel refreshed. Over the past 10 months, I've gained about 25 pounds. What can be causing my erectile dysfunction, weight gain, inability to get up in the morning, hypothyroidism, and testosterone abnormalities (low total testosterone, but high free testosterone)?

I need to find someone who can help me get a diagnosis for my brother. I believe he suffers from delusions of grandeur. My Dad won t be around much longer to support him so in order for him to get the services he needs he will need a diagnosis. I don t know if I can get him to go more than once or twice. It is painfully obvious to family members but I don t think a stranger would see a problem right away so I m concerned. Do you have a name of a psychiatrist that specializes in this? We live south of Detroit.
