Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi JA customer and thanks for writing.
I would like very much to help you on this. You are very concerned about what problems your marijuana use might cause for your unborn child but you are not at all concerned about your bi polar disorder?
Is this a stigma question?
Is it your concern because marijuana is an illegal drug? I wonder what your thinking is on this? Please help us to help you further by explaining this?
Much luck and warmest regards,
Not at all. I know that this is a decision you would have clearly thought out over a very long time before choosing as you have. I think what confused me is the marijuana issue.
No there is no medication that you can safely take for the first trimester or while you are trying to conceive. If you are able to reach second trimester without having any psychotic breaks and if you can remain out of the hospital and in the community then you can begin to take some medicines but nothing that is not doctor prescribed. So no marijuana unless you have a prescription for it. Marijuana is fairly benign given most drugs but if you are found to have thc in your system you can invite the Department of Children and Families into your life and that is not something you wish to do at all. So no meds, no marijuana without a prescription after the first trimester.
I hope I have understood you better on this. Good Luck to you.!
