Does taking medical marijuana adversely affect the treatment? I am taking an 800mg dose of Gleevec a day and have had my tumor removed.

As of this time, tests have not shown marijuana to adversely react with any medications, or treatments. However, it can have some adverse effects on your lungs, overall, according to FDA reports, just like smoking anything else would. It can also cause dizziness, and a very bad case of the munchies, from what I've heard. LOL

Given that you are on Gleevec and have had a tumor removed, it is always best to double check with your doctor about adding, or changing anything else, just to be extra careful.

How are you reacting to the Gleevec? Have you experienced any problematic side effects from it?
