Customer Question
I have parkinsons and...

I have parkinsons and i have a pacemaker implanted. I want to try marijuana for the parkinsons. Will that be alright with the pacemaker

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've experienced (e.g. shortness of breath, heart palpitations, minor physical effort making you feel tired)?

I have no symptoms now that i have the pacemaker but I do not sleep at night and i'm hoping the pot would help that and also help me during the day

Marijuana wouldn't affect the actions of your pacemaker so if I were your doctor I'd tell you there'd be no worries about that

Please let me know if you need any more information
