Common Questions and Answers about Marinol depression

marinol

Avatar n tn So I have had pretty serious anxiety and depression issues for as long as I can remember. I am 22 years old, and I have spent everyday of those 22 years obsessing over things that are completely out of my control. I have been diagnosed/misdiagnosed as having multiple disorders; GAD, agoraphobia, borderline personality disorder, and finally as manic depressive, which I think is the most accurate.
Avatar n tn Is there any Doctors in Alabama who would consider Marinol pills for chronic pain and/or depression? I know for a fact that it helps better then anything else.
Avatar m tn I now take Welbutrin and the depression is much less and E.D. is no longer a problem. However, I feel mostly flat and don't feel much euphoria. I smoked weed and it radically improved my sense of well being. I quit coffee months ago and that helped too. However, I feel that the Welbutrin is the cause of my lack of euphoria and my lack of creativity. Are there other anti depressants that do not interfere with the positive effects of marijuana. I no longer drink an alcohol.

Avatar f tn Does anyone have any idea what might be going on with me? I also have not been able to shake the depression caused by the Rebatron treatment I received 5 years ago and am still on high doses of antidepressents. Right now I am scared and sick and tired of being sick and tired. Any thoughts? Thanks for your time and imput.
Avatar f tn I've never heard of insomnia being associated with HIV. But anxiety/depression clearly is and can lead to insomnia.
Avatar n tn I was alone and ended up in a deep depression. Cocain and alcohol abuse ruled my life until 1998, and I'm clean ever since. In 2000 my legs began swelling, after tests, all was found to be normal, except lymphatic system clogged or nonexistent from burns. Horrible continuous diahrea began in mid-2001 and those tests continued until 2003. Again, no cause, but tests revealed that my food did not properly digest, fatty content in stools.
Avatar n tn Synthetic drugs which bind to the same receptors as THC. These drugs constitute the few Schedule I drugs on the market and Marinol is one example. These drugs are very potent and are almost exclusively reserved for cancer patients and persons suffering from AIDS. I wouldn't want to draw to many conclusions from your post but I would urge you to consider whether THC is medicinal or utopian?
Avatar f tn I don't know why your levels would go up before they went down, I don't even get why they would continue testing you like that, I don't remember my OB testing me for drugs, or at least he didn't say anything to me about it but I was also supposed to be taking Marinol (which is the legal pharmacological version of marijuana) because of stomach disorders I suffer from that cause me tons of severe chronic nausea/vomiting, extreme weight loss, and even severe to debilitating chronic pain but my ins.
315 tn?1231002174 I'll see the Onc on the 12th of Dec. and see what he thinks. My PCP was talking about marinol...but i told him my Onc has already addressed that and I will soon get a RX for that as well. I'm also trying to take a nausea med around the clock whether I'm sick or not...I'm not sure if it is helping yet..but it sure is making me tired as we all know phenergan does. Thanksgiving was a beautiful day...my son and grand daughter came with his fiancee..what a great surprise for me...
214607 tn?1287681159 I also had Marinol - for nausia and appetite, that worked. But the Naltrexone did the trick for me. But Naltrexone can only be taken after the 7th day clean...Let me know how it goes. I wish you all the love and luck.... God Bless....
Avatar f tn A number of studies have shown an association between chronic marijuana use and increased rates of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and schizophrenia. I know you mean well. However, if the patient is very anxious and irritable, it only shows there is some irritation in brain and you must discuss this with his neurologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn The dose is 4%solution intranasally. Used with extreme caution in patients with marked hypoxia, severe respiratory depression, or bradycardia Not much is documented about this therapy ,it is an experimental abortive therapy,you should consult your neurologist about the side effects before going for it.. Refer http://www.emedicine.com/neuro/TOPIC70.
Avatar n tn Because I never suffered depression but of course when finding out I had this,,,,its bound to make you down. They do say,,,Depression for years tends to not do great mixed with tx so you would have to answer these questions yourself. You do know what tx is like so only you with your dr could answer,,,if you could handle a 2nd round.
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 n tn Hey,,,The thread down below was closed so replying here. Depression is real on these meds and yes I wouldn't want to let that go as anyone at all feeling like they were weak or couldn't handle. I know lots that are suffering the mental part more so then physical. We all experience different sides it seems and some more severe in others. The depression part just hasn't overall been that bad or big of a battle for me,,,however,,,the flu like symptoms is the one that is getting me down the most.
Avatar n tn my reactions to trx drugs included incredible mind melting,depression and a general decline in faculties..Today @ 6 months post-trx i am feeling altogethr better,stronger & HAPPY...I wish y'all the best!!!...hello Friole& Flaguy!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I think medical pot, especially Marinol, is a really good option for our sx.s. It has been used for HIV tx. for along time. My doc wouldn't presribe it because I was getting really depressed & "he said" it can cause depression. I'm not sure if it really can, cuz I never felt depressed back in the old days. One real plus that I can see immediately is the munchies. I know I had no appetite while on tx.
Avatar n tn what is the treatment besides tylenol for these pain issues and has marinol ever been perscribed for someone who is going through this treatment?
264121 tn?1313033056 i tried the ant-nausea drugs a long time ago during a series of radiation trx's...they all made me sicker!!..my only and true helper during hepC trx was good ol pot,weed,bud...justa little puff,mind you...but it put me to rights pronto and always seemed to make the brainfog issues a matter of slapstik comedy?...not for everyone but sure worked for me......
Avatar n tn I looked up the adverse reactions for Marinol (i.e.

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.
137025 tn?1217768341 WOW, okay here goes. I stopped posting because I am having a HORRIBLE treatment experience, and people have been sooo cheerful, and "uplifting" - I have been having enough tummy troubles lately without swallowing sacharine on top of it all. Doc doesn't give me any illusions that this will get easier - just that I'll get through somehow. I am not having a "typical" treatment experience. I am having big trouble with that little side called "anorexia".
Avatar f tn As for the Promethazine, it was the first anti-nausia med I was put on and it makes me so sleepy that I could not function and it was contributing to the depression. I now take Marinol. It is wonderful! Works like a magic pill but it is not cheap. It also makes me very forgetful. I can not think of words and spelling is an option. I find myself having to check so many words to see if they are spelled correctly.
214607 tn?1287681159 Again, I am two weeks clean, but still feel horrible. My Dr. gave me Carbidopa for RLS and Marinol for my appitite..as well as valium..lDoes anyone know if these are addictive and also, are these meds the reason I still am so weak. Any help will suffice. Thank you and god bless..
Avatar f tn I made a deal with him earlier to take him tomorrow. That's the deal I'm being held to. The marinol helped him feel better, but he's getting that ribavirin frustration/anger stuff.
476246 tn?1418874514 I hope I don't jinx myself but it's amazing to me how everything changed over a short period of time. Haven't ever suffered with depression or bad riba rage, no rash yet and my hair is still intact. I know that is all subject to change at anytime but I'll enjoy it while it lasts. Only in my 13th week of tx but the first couple of months were rough. I think my body must be getting used to the meds (thank God) and I only hope it lasts.
Avatar n tn The rx marinol( synthetic form of marijuana) had nasty side effects. This was when I realized that medical science is only one path to healing and without all the answers. The government needs to butt out of our personal lives but unfortunately they are controlling it more and more. Love, Brighty..... Merry Christmas to all !!!
Avatar f tn I personally feel it was less harmful than ANY of the other meds mentioned here for sleep, anxiety, nausea, depression and non-exitent sex drive. And I've already survived complete liver failure so don't have much liver left to annoy, never mind insult. I rue the day I put down the pipe and lifted that wine glass to toast 'Good Health.
