PEP Meds and Marijuana
Aug 30, 2010

Hello Dr.McGowan,

Thanks for responding to my previous question. I found this site very useful! As you know I'm on PEP Meds. I asked my Specialist if I can be on these meds and still smoke marijuana. She said its okay but I just want to be sure. She mention not to drink alcohol though and I havent since I started PEP. Is it true that I can be on PEP Meds and use marijuana? I've did some research that marijuana can ease an upset stomach from the meds. Its been useful for me =>. Thanks for reading again and hope to hear from you soon

Response from Dr. McGowan

Good luck on the PEP.

I agree, there is no problem with using PEP and marijuana together, especially if it helps with symptoms and side effects you may be experiencing.

Best, Joe
