  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I have been taking lamictin 200mg and cipralex 10mg every morning for about a year now because of my depression. Every morning I go to university and smoke marijuana as soon as I get there and a few times throughout the day. I would like to know the possible reactions and effects that the marijuana can have while I'm on this medication.
