Marinol doctors

Common Questions and Answers about Marinol doctors


Avatar m tn I do not want to smoke marijuana. I read comments from others in Las Vegas where I live they found doctors who precribe Marinol. Can you provide me the name or locations of these doctors. I tried to use my main doctor and a urologist but no luck for they are not comforable in precribing it.
Avatar f tn My parents have agreed, that since my marijuana use dramatically helped with my colitis they would bring up the topic of marinol to my doctor. I am only 15 almost 16 and i want to know if anyone has used this as treatment, or if doctors do not like prescribing it especially to a younger person.
1499589 tn?1289165881 one being that some studies have suggested marijuana accelerates liver fibrosis. We pay our doctors to practice evidence based medicine; ask him why he opposes it, and perhaps it’ll make sense. And yes, I imagine if a doctor feels his patient is not being compliant with doctor’s orders, he could probably deny treatment drugs. Even in states that allow medical marijuana use, other issues arise.
Avatar m tn My dad takes oxycodone 15mg/ oxycontin 20mg/ marinol 2.5mg/ and ibuprofen 220mg Marinol is synthetic marijuana and it is doing wonders for his back pain. But if this is the case then shouldn't he theoretically be able to go off of the oxy's? I am so confused. Doctors don't tell me about liver or kidney protection and that is one of my first concerns.
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 it has been a really hard week and today i seen both my mental doctors and left kind of blah..they keep me on all these meds and i get more anxiety and she does try but marinol wasnt an option...i just wish that the stigma would be more talked about so that people could get off meds that are not fit for anything and sure as hell dont need to be flushed into the waste cause then its causing your neighbors kids to have a beard at a year old ..unwanted facial hair on a girl isnt pretty..
Avatar f tn I also now have heart involvement and am pacer dependent. I have an excellent gastroenterologist. He and other doctors have said that it's a very difficult case to treat. It is unusual as it is marked by very few remissions and has become drug resistant. On a typical day I will wake up with severe nausea, and it sometimes lessens after 3-4 hours. I can feel perfectly fine and am able to eat and drink. However, that period of time is always short lived and may only be 30 to 40 minutes.
Avatar n tn He is currently on Marinol and was on the strongest anti-nausea medication available however it doesn't seem to stop. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I don’t think they realize the psychological affect of being able to enjoy food again. Is there anything that I could suggest to his doctors that would give him an appetite again? He is on so many meds, and he even said, “If I could just take a pill to get my appetite back”. Thank you so much for any help you could give my dad.
Avatar f tn With all your allergies can you be reacting to the inactive ingredients in the meds I know I drive my doctors crazy w/the list of ingredients I cannot have in my meds. Can you try ginger tea? (Yogi makes a great one and it is also anti-inflammatory so it might help with the pain.) I mix ginger and peppermint and that helps my stomach a ton when it is bothering me. It also helps with the strong taste of the ginger and both are anti-inflammatories.
Avatar n tn I recieved 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 80% of my body 30 years ago that were so severe I was not expected to live for the 1st week. The doctors told me that they did not know what problems I would encounter later in life. I got hepatitus c, which was undiagnosed until 1994, then treated with inteferon. 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.
Avatar f tn Went through a series of test nothing could be found. I was put on Megace and Marinol to increase appetite. Gained back 7 lbs by January. In Febuary 2007 noticed a lump under left ear, not painful, by March the lump was starting to hurt and getting bigger, I now have two more lumps under the chin - finally went to Dr., he said they are swollen lymph nodes, no sign of infection, but put me on antibiotics just in case. Said he would send me to an ENT if they didn't go down with meds.
Avatar m tn Because of the intense fatigue, the NP gave me prescriptions for Ritalin (improve focus), Provigil (fatigue), and Marinol (help with nausea/lack of appetite, helps reduce pain/ spasticity from nerves misfiring) The Ritalin and Marinol are working great so far. I have not yet tried the provigil. I want to talk to my GP first because I have high BP and Provigil can elevate it. This was supposed to be a short note, so I'll keep quiet now.

Anyway my scans are looking good so far.They did find another spot on my hip in which they did 10 more rounds of radiation.
Avatar f tn As long as the baby doesn't have thc in their system when they are born they can't do anything to you dear. If they get too rude I would just switch doctors. My doctors know I smoked but they didn't even write it down when I had my first visit of the 21 questions. they have everyone pee, every time right before you're visit. At my doctors anyway. you'll be fine! itll be out of your system in 9 months I promise. Have a happy, stress free pregnancy. !
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).
1162446 tn?1262808503 I always find it odd that the same "doctors" who promote smoking of marijuana recoil in horror at those who smoke tobacco. You're still putting heat and pollutants into your lungs so the same risks apply to marijuana as tobacco. Of course pain is reduced if you smoke weed three times a day - you don't feel much of anything when you're stoned out of your mind.
Avatar n tn I have massive chest pain and am now having pain where my gallbladder is located (1 of 3 ultrasounds i had show polyps in it). None of my doctors can figure out what's wrong with me and they are trying to send me to a pain specialist. I'm a 19 year old female in perfect health until the pain started 6 weeks ago and has now rendered me incapable of pretty much everything. Does anyone have any input?
Avatar n tn Is there anyone made a year and then no problems after
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.
214607 tn?1287681159 Please do keep me posted. It sounds as if today is not your day..I completely understand. If there is anything I can do to help, please just ask. I can give u the number of my doctor and maybe they can help you find one near where u are. Or, go online and google "Naltrexone Doctors" and it should give u a list of Doctors in your area that help you with this process. I mean it when I say I feel so much better, they can help you... You can do it, just dont do it alone...
Avatar n tn Since the bowel obstruction is not complete and she is passing gas and has OK bowel movement, only part of this can be attributed to the obstruction - but she has lost almost 15 lbs over the past 2-3 weeks and is continually dehydrated because of anticipatory vomiting (the doctors don't call it anticipatory any longer - they call it anorexia). Has anybody gone thru this and does anyone have any suggestions!!!
Avatar n tn I know a few things that might be make you sick diet anything....................... Marinol 2.5 mg no stronger stop the throwing up for me.......
Avatar f tn all though he's do well he gets very anxious and seems to obsess over the little things . his family and doctors have him on heavy meds to treat this problem but he hates his medications and what they do to him. I know that smoking anything is bad for his health and recovery . recently i gave in and allowed him to smoke a very little bit of marijuana "i'm talking like 2 hits" I know his family would disapprove but it did wonders.
Avatar m tn You might allow that the prescribed drugs don't work and want to try marinol. That would be a legal prescribed substance that is pot derived. If given approval you might be able to augment w/ homegrown. I have mixed feelings about the validity of a few pot studies. It very well may promote fibrosis. I think you have to weigh out potential benefit of completing treatment with the perhaps minoir amount of increased fibrosis that could occur. If you clear it may become a mute point.
Avatar n tn The only way to get a reply from a doctor here is to post a question in the "Post a Question" box when you enter the forum. You may get an answer sooner or later. The doctors who contribute to this forum do not enter into the discussions and never enter comments or answer questions by posting replies in the "post a reply" box. This is my observation so far.
Avatar f tn So he is only getting about 900 calories a day with his 3 boosts a day and that is all he eats or drinks. The doctors prescribed marinol but that does not seem to help. I just don't know what to do anymore. He is wasting away. I do not understand how he is just not wanting to try when I need him so much. I do not want to nag him all of the time, but I am tired of preparing meals to just throw them away. I am getting very depressed and am not going to be much of a caregiver like this.
