Hello

I am afraid we can't answer this for you.  CBD oil is not a recognised treatment for the symptoms of cancer so I suspect that any interactions it might have with conventional medicines are not known.  Also, as its manufacture is not regulated in the same way as licenced medicines are, it is not possible to say whether all CBD oil bought commercially is exactly the same.

If you decide to take anything that hasn't been prescribed we would recommend that you discuss it with your doctor.

I hope that helps

hello,

if you look on drugs.com it will tell you about the drug interactions of meds, or you can do a general drug interactions search on google. Morphine and cbd oil is a no-no, dangerous reactions possible. 

Ive had lots of morphine and other drugs since my breast cancer diagnosis in 2016 and I’ve learnt you have to be very careful about drug interactions. On a bad day, like today, I take a synthetic morphine capsule ;left over from mastectomy) but I take nothing else and I certainly don’t drink for 48 hours with morphine in my system, it’s a very potent drug. I’d say choose one or the other med or maybe go back to your gp. Best of luck and I hope your pain reduces, as it has such an impact on quality of life. Take care.
