Cannabis use can lead to relapse in psychosis, partially because patients stop taking medication


I think it contributed to my son’s big relapse a year ago.

I know he was smoking some - and he was trying to stop Suboxone & Valium, so he just stopped everything.

Of course, it could have been the Zyprexa just stopped working for him after 8 years too - it certainly didn’t work anymore once they put him back on it.

I think that article is total BS…

@GSSP. – I can understand why you say that because I do know of a couple of people where it’s helped. My own daughter can’t smoke marijuana as it makes her very paranoid and scared.
