Marinol half life

Common Questions and Answers about Marinol half life


Avatar m tn Have a little trouble eating for a few days. I was a very heavy smoker, everyday all day. And have been more than half my life, I just quit smoking about 6 months ago wasn't no way near as hard as I thought it would be. As long as you keep your self busy and try not to think about it, its not to bad! Might be a little stressed for a few days but not to bad!
Avatar n tn There is a medicine called Marinol. My son has had CF his entire life. Hes 19 and weighs about 100 lbs. He was recently been prescribed Marinol. His weight has steadily increased since he started the drug. Yes it is made from marijuana. It is expensive but I know it works. Ive never seen him eat 4 meals a day, until now. God, that looks good. If you can get your weight up to a tolerable level the sx isnt as bad. Its still bad but better bad. Keep us up to speed on his condition.
294425 tn?1288531995 You could probably increase the Provigil from half to a whole one. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this is short lived in duration for you.
Avatar n tn You will be successful if you follow these steps so buy half of the supply at a time and buy your second half with plenty of time to spare. 2. Do the whole course through, if it says 6-8 weeks, stay on the whole 8. Give yourself a break, you deserve to have all the help you can get, even if you dont think you need it. 3. At each step down in patch strength, expect a rough few days to a week. During this time you'll be a bit irratiable but it's nothing nearly as bad as cold turkey.
335728 tn?1331418012 Honey, I hate to give you bad news, but the 56-103 hours is not the duration of methadone in your system. It is the "half-life." This means, that at worst, the drug level falls "in half" every 103 hours. So (worst case) four days to half the level, 8 days to one quarter of the level, etc. In Pediatrics, the worst thing we would get would be methadone-addicted babies. They would withdraw for weeks, literally. Heroin addition was much quicker for the baby to move through.
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?

680775 tn?1234875422 It hasa very long half life it last just voer two days and wd's are not as severe and take much longer to kick in, but it is generally alot eaier to manage than methadone or other opiates. Plus it is unique in that it is only partially a opiate agonist (the opiates that you can take to get high or what you took for pain relief,-oxycontin, fentanyl, opana, dilaudid,etc), but also has antagonistic properties which opiate antagonist are drugs used to stop an overdose such as narcan or maloxone.
1826037 tn?1320340914 I just know that the same endurance that galvanizes my resolution to stay on this life sucking protease inhibitor (in terms of energy- not effectiveness) galvanizes my endurance regarding exercise.........p.s. walking up the steps is harder for me than being stationary on an exercise machine which is probably a dual outcome of the Incivek and the Ribovarin.

1157044 tn?1318303724 Also I want to mention that I am really not interested in adding medications since I have noticed how much life they take out of me, this includes my ability to think – or my intellect. Not to mention I know that I seem hyper sensitive to medications. I have been on morphine to help manage my pain for about 2 years now. I also receive lidocaine infusions weekly. More recently, my neurologist believes I should get off the morphine. He is concerned on how much I am on.
Avatar f tn Although my nausea is healed, I usually fall dead asleep right after I take it. The problems that you are facing with the Marinol is because Marinol has always been side to have the same side effects as marijuana. That explains the side effects of short-term memory and not feeling completely there.
Avatar m tn You mean be half life it says inyou system a long time right?...i am now googling info on it and im kinda scared to take from what im script is for only 1 mg and 30 pills....tink i should be ok?....i just my BP and its normal...but lately i can feel a tension in my chest...
476246 tn?1418874514 Riba has a very long half life so with the normal doses were talking about, so the timing of your riba is not that critical, as long as you get the correct dose down the hatch every day -- at least according to my treatment team. Riba also absorbs better with food that has a decent fat content, so I took my riba with my two (and only) meals, breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was sometime between 10AM and 12 Noon, and dinner usually between 4-6PM.
1159737 tn?1286520857 That is hard on you to take that much Tylenol every day, the mmj would benefit you, but ask your doctor about Marinol (not sure if im spelling it right), a synthetic pill form so that you dont have to smoke, if your doc is open minded. It isnt quite the same but, its worth a try. I think that It helps me put the pain in the back of my mind, sometimes it breaks through when it its intense. But the dull achey pains that are constant are eased enough to not think about as much.
Avatar n tn literally that it ended in 1984 with HIS help!** life on drugs = completely screwed up! life off drugs = sanity returns but slowly! finding i have hep c around 2002, consequences of risky living...
29837 tn?1414538248 I already have quantity of life, I now will need quality of life in the next 48 weeks. So be it. Hope this helps clear up some of the clouds in the Medicinal Marijuana law regarding purchasing it from legal dispensaries... Good luck to all my peers here ready to start. Let's go forward with mad determination. Remember, the treatment is not forever.

Avatar n tn it has a really LOOONG half life, so by no means should you go back to the doses of fiorinal you were taking. you could easily overdose. by long half life, it is in upwards of 200 hours. that means the dose you have taken today will reduce by half in 200 hours....which still leaves a lot in your system. then, that dose will reduce by half in 200 hours. each person is different, so the rate of elimination is different, but still it's very long. much longer than butalbital.
Avatar f tn I think you are going to have to go threw it unless you are going to spend the rest of your life on it .
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any problems with fungus anywhere on their bodies? 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?
146021 tn?1237208487 Where it hurt so bad for a year and a half to eat anything except bread and ice I'm back on the hot sauce and fireballs again no problem! WHHHOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! " my tongue was sore and bleeding ...
Avatar n tn Rest and chiropratic? Is there something she should be avoiding doing from now on or can she have a normal life? Thank you very much for your advice.
Avatar n tn or what i think normal is supposed to feel like, I could work, I could go to college, I could keep appointments and multi task, I had my creativity again, I could function socially for the first time in my life and my panic attacks were few and far between. Once I voluntarily withdrew from opiates and began therapy....all that is GONE. AND I MEAN I FEEL WORSE THAN I EVER HAVE. My phychiatrist has tried zyprexa, seroquil, already on xanax and have been for about four years....
4226456 tn?1354123528 My hep doctor denies any knowledge of such side effects post treatment and tells me this is what happens when we age. No way. No Way! I have worked out my whole life and am very active, before treatment I did kick boxing, zumba, weight lifting, pilates and yoga. No I can't do those things yet to the degree that I was before, but I am working on getting my strength and endurance back. I understand it take time, but... Is any one else experiencing joint problems after treatment?
Avatar n tn I have to say that I am at one of the lowest points in my life. I am not sure that life is worth living any longer. I do appreciate the time everyone took to respond to me and will try to post labs when I have them in hand.
Avatar m tn Make no doubt about it it is not only real, it is chemical. I was not depressed prior to treatment. I was my whole life a glass is half full, silver lining to every dark cloud, kind of guy. People always wanted to know why I smiled so much. After about 8 weeks of TX it hit me hard. The first 8 weeks I thought I was going to be one who would breeze through treatment....WRONG. i know take 4 additional meds to deal with the sides from the peg and riba.
