A Patient’s Guide to CBD and Drug Interactions

Written by Healer Staff Writer

While CBD has an excellent safety profile overall, using it in high doses alongside other drugs may come with a risk of drug-drug interactions. University Health News reached out to Healer and Dr. Sulak on this topic.

Read the full story: A Patient’s Guide to CBD and Drug Interactions.

The most common CBD drug interactions include:

  • Blood thinners such as Warfarin
  • Medications for seizure disorders
  • Statin cholesterol medications
  • Antifungals including Erythromycin and Azoles
  • Anti-depressants
  • Immunosuppressants

According to Dr. Sulak’s clinical experience, most CBD-drug interactions are uncommon at levels below 100mg per day. If you take many medications, see multiple doctors, or have particular health concerns, you and your doctors must be aware of all of your medications to avoid potential drug interactions.
