Common Questions and Answers about Does marinol have thc


Avatar m tn At this writing, no such medication exists. Also note that CBD2 is not effective for all kinds of pain, and that it does not have the psychoactive effects of THC.
Avatar f tn I know TONS of girls, including myself, who are around it a lot due to friends and they all have been fine with no thc in their system. You have to consume it somehow for it to get in your blood!
1390055 tn?1365618655 I mean, what options do I have left anymore at this point? I can't move out of state right now either (I have 50 bucks in the bank at this moment and my boyfriend who works full time is just as broke), and I really REALLY don't want to go down illegal routes just to make myself a functioning member of society. I don't want to break the law, I just want to get by and survive, go to college, read a book, I JUST WANT TO LIVE!
Avatar m tn however real marijuana has other chemical componds that Marinol does not such as CBD (cannabinoid) that isn't very psychoactive but helps significantly reduce inflammation, relaxes muscles, and relieves pain. Marinol is typically prescribed to cancer patients to help with the pain, nausea, and to increase appetite. Many cancer patients have said that it is not nearly as effective as real medical marijuana and a smaller subset said it helped.
461838 tn?1255793816 I have a friend probably if not by the grace of God is in the latter stages of ovarian, colon cancer, she is very sick, has anybody tried marijuana for nauseau or any other sx with hep c and being ill during tx?
535089 tn?1400677119 This document, leaked by a disillusioned company employee, lists more than 250 over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs that can cause false positives.
Avatar m tn I have been treated for Chronic pain post Cancers and therapies, and I am very tolerant to any Opiates. I would like to try using Marinol (synthetic THC) for pain; it helped my pain as well as my nausea when I went through my Stem-cell Transplant. I am in Athens, GA; does anyone know of a doctor willing to prescribe this medicine for pain (when you have not been diagnosed with a cancer...yet?
Avatar m tn marinol is the THC gel cap and insurance covered mine, It did help. As far as I know it does not interfere negativly with treatment. After I lost my medicade during treatment because my disability claim was denied after 3 months in tx I could not afford it out of pocket, I was a grand for each script, I periodically bought some weed and it really did help with my appitite and also calmed me. Also helped me sleep. I had not smoked the stuff since I was 20, am 55 now.
Avatar n tn , my doctor would have scripted it if I had wanted. In the pill form anyway. It is called Marinol. Hopefully someone else will come along who knows about trials. I know New Sojourn gets medical marijuana.
560501 tn?1383616340 It's called Marinol (sp?) Many people do not think it works. One of the problems with isolating THC is that it removes the many compounds found in marijuana that may be involved in bringing relief to it's users.. Unfortunately, in this country, particularly at the Federal level, there is staunch resistence to using marijuana medicinally. However, with a drug such as Sativex, the gov't/FDA may be more willing to grant approval or even run further trials.
Avatar m tn It does help, but I have no idea what it will do to the trials and whether or not they will throw you out. Don't agree with taking more man made drugs over the counter or otherwise to counteract these horrible drugs we are on. Weed is natural, comes from the earth. It hasn't hurt me and when I feel really bad, smoking helps, not just with the eating, also the psychological effects. Talk to the people who you are going through the trials with and see what they say.
620048 tn?1358021835 The US is not yet ready for that. Marinol isn't even close. All THC and no CBN, and there have been overdoses with Marinol. I hold a great job with a fortune 20 company that knows I augment the treatment my disease with MMJ. They are not worried about it. They have a bigger issue with alcohol and prescription drug use in other employees.
Avatar f tn From what I understand about marinol (have not used it) it does not have any psychological effects. Part of the reason to use cannabis is for these effects. I agree that any smoking cannot be good for the lungs, etc. However, the amount of smoke consumed is much smaller than even half a tobacco cigarette. Also, there are alternatives to smoking. I have little direct evidence as to its effect on tx: in 12 weeks with no cannabis, I went from 121,000 vl to undetectable (Heptamax, <5 IU/ml).
Avatar f tn Nothing, in my case, beats the REAL thingl it definetly isn't for everyone, but marijuana works so much better the the man made THC. It is not for everyone, but like I said, in my case it does work as a great medicine. For me it is just off of the one hitter. No joints or blunts, just through the one hitter. Maybe 8 to 9 One hits a day. There is much research to see what benifets can come from the GOD made marijuana. Not for everyone, but it works wonders for me!!
233488 tn?1310696703 While generally mellow, marijuana users only seem to become angry and agitated when any suggestion is made that their pot use might have adverse consequences. When we wrote on this subject in the Kansas City Star, they had to shut down The Star website discussion because of all the abusive and vulgar postings. It’s obvious that stoners would rather get mad than carefully consider any contrary evidence to their mental construct that chronic marijuana use is harmless fun.
Avatar m tn They tried every other anti Nausea drug including Marinol which is suppose to have the same thing the in the MJ but it does not work. The MJ is the only thing that works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn m in Drug court in Louisiana . reason being,lortab. I have been off of lortab since Jan 2008.......havent touched an opiate since at all !

The first test 3,000 nanos, the second 6,000 nanos !!!! I am STUNNED !!!!! The only thing that I take is my anxiety meds ( Citilopram,40 MGS) .....
335728 tn?1331418012 My doc has thankfully decided to take me off the oxy and wants to try a med that apparently is used for Fibro treatment that is THC based but I didn't catch the name. Does anyone know the name of it and has anyone tried it? The oxy did nothing to alleviate my pain and the Lyrica is not doing anything either. I am just sooo glad to be off the oxy! I can't stand the way it makes me feel and I can't function while on it!
917763 tn?1311632496 this is probably something you should discuss with the human resources department. There are drugs like Marinol that are THC derivatives that doctors can Rx too, although some docs don’t prescribe it much. I can’t smoke that stuff any more; it makes me too, um… strange :o).

Avatar n tn i too smoke the evil weed--if it's the only thing that helps with the nausea and apetite then i'm all for it although i haven't spoken with the doc about it yet---i am new to all of this and i just got the genotype and vl--2b-1,580,000--i guess the biopsy is next--but let me ask another question--what does snorting cocaine have to do with hep c--my doc asked about that on first consult--i don't understand and i forget to ask him and now alot of my friends are a little worried--
1159737 tn?1286520857 Now I haven't tested the theory myself since I cant stomach it. But I have a friend that does smoke MJ for his chronic headaches. Now it know its a difference between the two and many don't recommend it because coughing does cause our headaches to get worse. As I have learned over the last month, with this cold. If it works for you and it provides you with relief by all means find away to get it into your system. I feel your pain with taking 3000 mgs of over the counter meds.
572651 tn?1531002957 In fact as many of you know I am still trying to get onto the oral drug trial (commencing screening in October) as an alternative to DMD's. If it does not happen this time then I will have to start the screening for funding for DMD's under the NHS. Hope that gives a little insight but I am sure others in UK have different experiences.
Avatar n tn This is the real problem with middle age, my son -- you learn a little restraint! But Marsh Mellow does have that certain ring, doesn't it? What I'm referring to are devices called vaporizers (check google & Ebay). Just took the plunge a couple of weeks ago myself 'cause I wanted to avoid unnecessary toxic pollutants in the lungs. A vaporizer releases the THC at a lower temperature (vaporizes, not burns).
Avatar n tn And although it is a Schedule II drug, the doctor can write him a script for Marinol, which has the active ingredient of marijuana, THC, and stimulates appetite. It worked wonders for my father-in-law when he had lung cancer---he ate well until just three days before he died. Does your friend have a close family member to act as an advocate at doctor appointments? If not, do you wish to? It's hard, but there's no more holy work in the world.
Avatar m tn If I do go and get this test could she tell my psychiatrist about THC in my system. He is the only one I have in my corner and I would be pissed to loose him. I could always get another liver doctor, but I would hate to over a stupid test, but it is giving me great anxiety, because I dont understand he intentions.
649848 tn?1534637300 Women who smoke marijuana while pregnant are more likely to have low–birth-weight infants, and THC, the major psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, is passed along in breast milk. Oncogenic: Studies show that cannabis use increases the incidence of testicular germ-cell tumors up to 70%, particularly in heavy or long-term users. Mental Health Among marijuana’s most troubling effects are those on mental health and cognitive function.
Avatar n tn ALT 120). Previous, yearly panels have not shown any abnormalities. I have learned from this board that these are moderate increases. I have a follow up scheduled later this week (i assume for hep screen and re-evaluation). In the days before the test (including the night before) I used marijuana excessively. Over the past 3 months i have used it regularly. I have recently gained approx 15 pounds due to inactivity and poor eating habits.
203342 tn?1328740807 I don't think people can just go to a doctor and ask for it, either. They appear to have to have a legitimate medical reason. I see a lot of fear out there on this and am wondering why. It appears to have less side effects than many harsh prescription drugs and if it can help people who are suffering from chronic pain, cancer, MS and other medical issues, then why not? What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it should be allowed strictly for medical reasons? Why or why not?
163305 tn?1333672171 I read on one of these threads that you shouldn't smoke if you have cirrhosis. Why? What is the evidence of it being bad for your liver?
