How does marijuana effect on all my other medications?

I am Type 1, rapid cycling, bipolar. I currently am taking Symbyax, Lamictal, and Adderall. I take ativan as needed, but I find it doesn't do much for me and I often have crying bouts after use. I was thinking of augmenting with an edible here and there as needed instead of the Ativan, butI can't find any good information pertaining to potential drug interactions. I rarely get hypomanic, more often a mixed state, and I never get manic. Can anyone help me out?

I'm sorry ---  I don't know the answer to that question.  Is pot legal in your state?  Could you talk to your doctor about this.  It does sound like the Ativan is a bad choice for you because of how you feel after you take it.  I'm sorry about that.  See if your doctor can give you some advice. good luck
