I have had cognitive decrease ever since smoking marijuana a year ago. I have had problems with sleeping, reading, comprehension, and on neuropsych testing have revealed major deficits in metacognition. The problems with comprehension started right after taking the pot, and they have persisted, as well as a thinking impairment. I don't have any other symptoms except being half awake/asleep when sleeping. Severe impairment of thinking, and trouble with arousal. I have also taken risperdal, prozac and many other medications to no avail. Its been more than a year since I took pot for only the fourth time (not a chronic user). Please help. I am 21 male, did have problems feeding when young...but nothing major.
