Common Questions and Answers about Does smoking marinol work

marinol

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 So, he perscribed marinol (he wanted to give me options) and told me vaporizing marijuana was ok too. This was actually after my cardiologist thought this would be a good plan for me. So I tried it. The Marinol works fantastic, the marijuana works almost as well too. There's little to no pain when I use it before I usually get an attack, and during an attack, it stops the pain in its tracks. It's really amazing. The problem: The problem is that I HATE the psychoactive effects from it.
Avatar n tn Wanting to gain more weight for my 6'2' frame, I began smoking pot that helped me gain another 25 lbs. My question is does anyone know the effects of smoking pot in regards to my liver. It is badly damaged but I would hate to stop my use of marijuana for weight gain.
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!!
Avatar m tn I have read marijuana does work,and would help me eat again.I just don`t know if I would get kicked out of the trial if they discovered thc in my blood.Also I am not sure if it would harm my liver in any way or interfer with the interferon and riba and the trial drug.There seems to be a difference of opinion on what marijuana may or may not do to the liver.
560501 tn?1383616340 And eating it does work as opposed to smoking. You just need to be conservative about how much you use for two reasons: 1)the prohibitive cost, and 2) today's quality/strength is much stronger than that of the 60' & 70's.
Avatar n tn Vaporizing, if only because my throat can't handle smoking. I've been in desperate straights with the headaches and it's really helped take the edge off. Can't believe I'm turning into a pot head (again) at this age.
1159737 tn?1286520857 You don't do it like a pothead does - i.e, if you smoke medicinally you are not smoking a whole joint or doing bong hits. It's about taking one or two inhales, not about getting a big buzz or getting stoned. It honestly affects your mental state less than a glass of wine if you are talking small quantities at a time, but (I hear) it's very helpful to people in chronic pain, including chiari patients.
Avatar n tn I HAVE SEEN 70 AND 80 YEAR OLD PT'S ON CHEMO IN THE ER AND HAVE THEM TELL ME THE MARINOL PILL'S DONT WORK SO THE GET THEIR GRANKIDS TO BUY THEM A BAG OF POT, THIS IS SAD BECAUSE THEY ARE ASKING THEIR GRANCHILDREN TO BREAK THE LAW SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE SOME QUALITY TO THEIR LIFE. IF THE TX GETS TO ROUGH ON ME AND MY DR WANTS ME TO TRY THE MARINOL I PROBABLY WILL GO WITH THE HERB VS THE PILL BUT GET THE SCRIPT FILLED ANY WAY AS I WORK IN A FEDERAL HOSPITAL AND AM SUBJECT TO RANDOM DRUG SCREENS.
264121 tn?1313033056 Has anyone else tried this vistaril nausea med and if so, did it help? If this doesn't work for me I am going to ask for an injectible anti-emetic, just haven't figured out which one I want to try yet. I know I don't want injectible phenergan. I've been there before and it can be very hard on the tissue, even when you use it IM.
1056851 tn?1318724578 It absolutely DOES work! Jen, I've also read that SPMS has less inflamation/lesion activity and more axon loss, FWIW.
Avatar f tn Pot is something you smoke and with all the cancer related disease and lung problems that are a direct product of smoking, it just does not make sense to smoke pot, which would have the same effect on the lungs that smoking does. I wish they had made cigarettes illegal when they determined that they will kill you and taken that choice away for me. I would still not be fighting it if they had. My other concern is that pot does different things to different people.
163305 tn?1333672171 OOPS! I stand corrected. I Just read the post and not the question. Must be time for me to take a few tokes! LOL I'm outta here *poof* Happy healing all!
233488 tn?1310696703 ” As we reported in Missouri Medicine, “Proponents of cannabis use argue that smoking cannabis provides relaxation and pleasure, enhances the sense of well-being, contributes to stress relief, and helps to deal with hard reality. Of course any enhancement of well-being in a mentally healthy person through use of a psychoactive substance is in some sense an oxymoron.

Avatar n tn It is stupid that it is not leagle for medicinal use. I almost got cought today smoking the stuff. I find that is almost as effective ass all my other pain meds put together (including Dihydrocodeine and Morphine) and it is not addictive like narcotics The sooner it is leagleized the better.
137025 tn?1217768341 My Mother was given Marinol and for her it was awful. Far too strong even with small doses and it didn't work. That isn't to say that will happen to you but if you have other choices, maybe start there. For me just having to chew stuff up is a challenge at times which is why the smoothies work so good. ANother thing I remembered is instant breakfast, it has a lot of calories too and comes in flavors. If you can handle milk you could try that. I'd ue whole milk for added calories.

476246 tn?1418874514 It was the doctor that actually recommended it. There is something else that may work for you, but didn't work well for me. It's called Marinol. This is a synthetic TCH (marijuana main active ingredient) that comes in a soft jell capsule. You may want to try that. It has the same effect but without the smoke. It's a prescription drug. Ask your doctor. I agree about legalizing pot once and for all. I mean, who would you rather face in a dark alley at 3 a.m.
Avatar f tn Hang in there-You're one tough human.
Avatar m tn I also got another disorder which contributes to the nausea Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.. I was actually given a prescription for Marinol the active ingredient in marijuana but that has been some time ago. My state allows for medical cannabis for Hepatitis I just never went that route because I am not sure what my docs would think.
Avatar n tn When you say you have authority by your Doctor to use illegal drugs, how does that work? Does that mean you can go "cop a score" on the corner and if the cops bust you they read your letter and let you go? I'm not trying to be sarcastic, just trying to learn here...I had no idea you could "legally" buy, grow and use marijuana...Is this a State by State jurisdiction?
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!
Avatar n tn Never in my life did I have this problem, and now I have it in one nail and on my skin in two spots. Any recommendations? Also, does anyone know if smoking marijuana very periodically (say once a week) has any bad effect on the success of treatment? My husband said he'd be willing to try and find me some if it would help me with a bad appetite and also to relax, but not if it would hurt the treatment, and I thought I should ask because here rather than asking my doctor.
1157044 tn?1318303724 Thank you for your posting, and for your understanding. Marinol was one of the many drugs that have been on & it did nothing to ease my pain. I don't know now what my dosages were; I know that I didn't get high from it. In fact, the thought the doctor that had prescribed it for me said it wouldn't do that. He knew of my concerns of that in general. I refused to continue taking Oxycodone when that was initially prescribed to me because it gave me a "high" feeling.
Avatar m tn can anyone please tell me if they tried this and does it work ok....im feeling stressed ,,not from thr TX drugs...but from all the work issues and run around i am now going tru....ive heard they can be hard on the live but i want to try someting to calm my nerves....i cat seem to stop talking and my mind is racing worrying if i screwed things up with my finanical problems....
1747881 tn?1546179478 Colorado, Washington Pot Legalization Deals Drug War Major Blow http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/07/colorado-washington-pot-legalization-_n_2086023.html Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana in the prohibition era on Tuesday, dealing a major blow to the war on drugs. Medical marijuana was also legalized in Massachusetts, underlining long-running trends in public opinion toward more permissive attitudes on drugs.
Avatar f tn lint, where does it come from, how does it get trapped in the lint trap, why do you only find it after your clothes go in the dryer??? = tooth picks - I wonder how many toothpicks you get out of one tree... Just stupid things that came at me so fast & made no sense. I could not get my brain to shut up!!! I would lay in bed for 45 minutes & I could not will myself up & out of bed to get ready for work. I went back up to 1.5 pills. I have been here for 3 months.
Avatar f tn I would try the Percocet for awhile and see how it affects you. Yes, if it does not work, your pain management doctor should be more than willing to switch you back. Sorry this is so long, I hope I was able to answer some of your questions, or atleast offer some support. Good luck, and keep us posted! P.S.-Have you noticed a difference in your pain from hydrotherapy or swimming? Just wondering, thinking about giving it a try but worried it may cause more pain. Thanks.
