is that a reasonable dose for me to see some benefits from?
Itís a very individual thing. I think itís important to start at a low dose & increase in increments. I looked at several websites that showed dosage per body weight. The bottle of oil I have says (I think) 10-20 ml once or twice a day. Some of the things iíve Read indicated that taking too much may not increase benefits. I started at 13 mg with the choc hearts. That was fine for me. W the gummies I needed 20 mg. The gummies come in 100 mg strength so I cut them up.
Also, there are a few prescription meds that may be metabolized differently when you are taking CBD. My Blood pressure med was one of these. I asked my doctor before I took it & she said it should be ok. I monitored my blood pressure & havenít Had any problems. Web site said meds that you canít take grapefruit with are some of the ones that may be affected by CBD.

Did you inform your psychiatrist that SSRIs make you more anxious, and if so what did she say?

She knows I have C-PTSD so my reactions are not those of people with typical depression but she has to go by NICE guidelines and offer SSRIs first because current practice is so behind the times. Don't want to use meds anyway.

I tried the cbd oil but couldn't handle it as it made me so anxious and nervous. I did take my psych meds with it too I think I shouldn't have taken them together. any reasons or suggestions as to why both wouldn't work together?

I donít know whether they know enough about it yet. I initially asked a pharmacist & she said they had no info on CBD yet and she couldnít give an opinion. My Dr seemed to think it shouldnít be a prob w anything but some Drs underestimate the affects of non parmaceutical substances. I think, as with most drugs, that it is a very individual thing. I found that CBD chocolate made me a little anxious but smoking CBD weed did not. And I have never been able to smoke pot because it made me really anxious. Iíve also noticed that the caffeine in chocolate doesnít bother me but in coffee or tea an equivalent amount causes prolonged panic. Never knew why. I would think talking with your Dr, reading up on it and cautious experimentation would be the way to go.
