My brother currently smokes weed, daily. He has been in and out of chiropractic appts, and the doctors office prescribed him cyclobenzaprine 10mg and meloxicam 15mg today. Will mixing marijuana and these have serious consequences? He is supposed to take the cyclobenzaprine at night and meloxicam for the day time. I tried looking up this on the internet but can t find much. I don t want him to hurt his stomach or OD.

Hello lindseylykins
Welcome to HCM
cyclobenzaprine is a medicine that is a muscle relaxant and it is often used in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and meloxicam is often also used in this condition. Meloxicam is a NSAID drug. So far as per my opinion there is no serious harmful effect of using marijuana or weed smoke with these drugs.
But smoking weed has very harmful effects the effects produced with weed tend to nullify the effects of there medicines. And smoking weed usually have always serious consequences. So try to motivate him to quit the bad habit.
Thanks AND Take Care
