Can You Mix CBD And Lexapro?

With all the attention CBD is gaining daily, many questions arise regarding the interaction of CBD with another Rx that a person might also currently be taking.

One of the most searched questions on the internet regarding Cannabidiol; “Is CBD safe if taking Lexapro?”

CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol, is generally considered a safe supplement which you can find in many health & wellness stores. The endocannabinoid system is a system that exists naturally in all our bodies. It is composed of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors.

In the liver, CBD seems to almost take over the enzymes to where it may increase the levels of medications found in the blood.  This translates to Cannabidiol can make certain Rx more effective. In some cases, this means you can lower the dosage. Studies suggest that if you take Lexapro in addition to a CBD regiment it may increase the level of Lexapro in the blood.

It is important to understand how CBD may interact with any Rx you are taking if you are considering a CBD regiment. CBD can cause a build up of some prescriptions in your system thus potentially causing a toxic build up. Consult your doctor before beginning any CBD regiment that may interact with Rx you may already be taking for another condition.
