Avatar f tn The back pain is back and the surgean referred me to PM and gave me the same meds gabapentin and hydrocodone, so I started smoking again otherwise I get sick dont eat, puke bile. PM did a drug test, which I told them about the pot and they said no injections without it but would put me on tramadol due to FDA law.
Avatar f tn CPS of course had to investigate so a caseworker came to our house and interviewed us all and told us the drug and abuse allegations and we both explained to her that we didn't do meth or any drug like that but (and I also showed her my Rx sheet for the Marinol) we told her about the pot use and explained why I wasn't on the Rx instead (when I told her the amount of money I would have had to come up with to get the Rx filled for a 30-day supply I thought she was going to pass out) and I explain
Avatar n tn I have been able to go to work and function since then, although always depressed, alone, angry. I recently added marinol and provigil, and feel optimistic for the first time in years, until the drug test. It's assumed I'm lying, but I need someone to help figure out where the phenobarbital came from. I'm certain I took it at some time, but not in several years. I'm ready to give up, so this is my final plea for help? I've got no more fight left in me. Thanks.

Avatar m tn Also, does serum drug screen test for THC.. I looked on google and could not find much. I think it does not unless they specify but how do I know if she specified??
Avatar f tn With Lots of other problems with eating and I was put on MARINOL and it has helped me eat I was 120lb.woman went to a 98lb.woman and the marinol helping me eat 103lb.
Avatar n tn My endo didn't care and said I was lucky that I wouldn't have to lose weight. My GI doctor disagreed and prescribed Marinol. I never could tolerate it, but no other nausea med worked and Phenergan added to the movement, especially the doses they had me on (150 mg/daily). I settled on a small dose of Marinol (2.5 mg). I even have problem with that. It seems to be related to faster heart beat. I have been weaning off of it.
Avatar n tn It attacks the liver full fledge, as if it is a foreign part of the body. Thankfully, it was caught on time, and prednisone and a drug called 6 mmp seem to be taking care of the problem. It is, as well as MS, never goes away, but can stay controlled. Anyway, I hit this button accidentally after I was done chatting w/my email friends as well that have my disease. I wanted to say you ladies sound like a great group of gals. Such support and love in your words.
233488 tn?1310696703 The legislative route being used to introduce medical and recreational marijuana illegally and dangerously circumvents this FDA drug testing process. Federal law also mandates that marijuana use and possession is illegal but Presidents and the Justice Department have chosen to ignore the laws they swore to defend. Legitimate FDA type research has been done on purified cannabis and useful products for cancer chemotherapy such as Marinol® and Cesamet® are available.

203342 tn?1328740807 It's not like they are going into a back alley somewhere and buying this from drug dealers. They also appear to monitor the amount and usage. 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.
1461073 tn?1308681148 I too questioned the Zofran/Phenergan protocol, along with the Marinol, as being too aggressive. The Oncologist just put him on the Zofran and Marinol on 10/2/18. He said he wanted to try it for a week to see if it helped. The CBD oil was recommended by a friend whose child is battling cancer and has helped his N/V and appetite a lot so my hubby wanted to try it.
Avatar m tn pmid=16343787 I saw a neurologist in August. The neurologist performed an EMG, EEG, and an MRI. The EMG measures the electronic signals that are traveling through the nerves after being stimulated by a small electric shock (it's pretty painless). when the muscle is shocked, it should send an electrical signal, then electrical activity should go silent. If the EMG equipment sees ongoing signals afterwards, then that can signify neurological issues.
Avatar m tn Also, I got to thinking about Dee who had a problem with her prozac not working because of the Vic, a serious complication her doctor knew nothing of. Obviously this is a strong drug and perhaps all its side effects aren't known yet. Having watched the video, I heard the doctor speak of the psychological side effects caused by interferon~ not a new revelation. If she made a connection between Vic and pot, I missed it ( which is possible, I miss a lot these days).
Avatar m tn Participants' cannabis use was ascertained in interviews at ages 18, 21, 26, 32, and 38 years. IQ testing was done at age 8, 11, and 13 years, before the start of cannabis use, and again at age 38, after a pattern of persistent cannabis use had developed. One third of the cohort had never used cannabis.
Avatar f tn I went to see my GP 3 weeks ago and he prescribed omeprazole, which is an anti-ulcer drug. Didn't get any better and got an urgent appt with my gastro last week. He has ordered a CT scan of my pancreas,liver,abdomen and pelvis -having that June 24th. Then 9th July he is doing an upper endoscopy under sedation. He doubled the omeprazole and also prescribed domperidone, an anti-emetic, which I had when having FEC chemo for breast cancer.
1747881 tn?1546179478 The votes marked a significant shift from decades of tough-on-crime policies that burned through $1 trillion in tax dollars over 40 years, led to the arrest of 850,000 Americans for marijuana law violations in 2010 alone, and fueled the rise of deadly drug cartels abroad. But even as pot reformers celebrated their long-sought victories, the threat of a confrontation with the federal government loomed.
Avatar n tn However, he said he has been hearing of some good responsives with a drug, (he said the name and called it in to my Pharmacist, and I didn't write it down what the name was as I was going to see the name once I was supposed to pick it up from the Pharmacy), that is used my patients after a kidney transplant. So, he prescribed it for me, however, it bounced back from the pharmacy, because they said it was a certain class of drug, and must be approved by my health insurance.
1159737 tn?1286520857 I am desperte and think it would be so much less addicting and harmful than the vicodin I am constantly popping for minimal relief. I am not a drug user but hey. I smoke cigarette what's the difference if it helps and the government might just be able to get out of debt with all the tax revenue they bring in from it not to mention the money they save from the task forces to stop it. Anyways.
Avatar f tn I have been in rehab programs, pain clinics, and I just cannot get relief either. I hate taking this drug because my body depends on it, and it is not very effective. I do get botox. Have you tried that? Also I get massage, acupuncture and minimal chiropractic care. I apologize that this is so long, but I wanted you to see what happened to me because I didn't check everything out. Know that I am here if you need someone to talk to.
567677 tn?1246771376 he said to me well Utah does not have Medical Majiuana but for trigeminal neuralgia I can put you on Marinol the side effects will help you ... I asked him what it was and he told me I was just glad I wasn't presenting for it...
Avatar n tn i lived for them and would do anything for them...i would try any drug...and it lead to real problems and suicidal thoughts because i messed up my life so much from it... THANK GOD, i gave my whole life over to God and became a Christian. i gave it all up...my life completely changed for the better. there is no comparison to life with drugs and a life without drugs...for me!!!
4226456 tn?1354123528 My hep doctor told me he has lots of patients who use marijuana for the nausea and to feel better, although he does not prescribe it. The marinol was a miracle drug for relieving my pain and itch. It did give me a total head numbness the first few days as my body got used to it I think. I tried glucosamine/chondraiyin/msm combo as suggested and saw no relief from my muscles or joints. It seems swimming and getting up moving, massages, warm tub soaks helps a little.
