Common Questions and Answers about Marinol nausea

marinol

Avatar m tn I took 1 2.5 mg Marinol cap about 2 weeks ago. I don't do drugs. The pill was taken by mistake. Am I positive for THC?
Avatar m tn My doctor gave me a small dose, and I think it was probably too small to make a difference as far as nausea and appetite went. Around the same time I started taking it, I started having anxiety attacks. I'd never had them before, so I attributed them to Marinol, I stopped taking it and they went away.
5905865 tn?1376448377 Hi I am having second thoughts about my Dr prescribing me marinol for my severe nausea and vomiting due to Gastroparesis bc there is a history of alcoholism and drug addiction in the family... any thoughts?
Avatar m tn Can somebody tell me anything about marinol?I would like to try it,since other nausea meds have not worked.I am going into my 7th week and I can`t seem to get this nausea calmed down.I eat enough to keep going because there is very few foods that don`t make me want to throwup.This will probably sound odd,but even water turns my stomach.I know I posted about my nausea problem before,but nothing seems to help.
Avatar n tn Hi! Marinol is approved for the treatment of anorexia or persistent nausea associated with AIDS or chemotherapy. It is being tested for pain relief in cases refractory or not responding to opioids. It is prescribed by some doctors under strict medical supervision under the final phases of drug testing for pain. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn I've read about some people diagnosed with ADD taking marinol as a form of medication. I was wondering what effects it would have when taken with adderall, or as a replacement for other meds. What sort of side effects, and/or lack of side effects to make other meds more effective.
Avatar m tn I have not use marijuana in about 2 months and everyday its the same thing anxity, horrible back pain, and atleast 3-6 times a week i have bad nausea. Im wondering how to get marinol? Because if i was able to get marinol legaly then i wouldnt have to break the law and use marijuana. I have take some pain pills and other stuff but nothing works for me other then marijuana. It would be great if i didnt have to use marijuana and break the law, and could legaly use marinol and feel normal.
Avatar f tn e. Phenergan, Marinol, Zofran). I have had no success with these nausea drugs. I don't believe that there is anything new or that they would be of benefit to me. I have used Enbrel. After the initial injection, it provided only two days of relief. Not only is it cost prohibitive; but when I took a second injection, it did nothing. In 2005 I experienced a full remission for a period of nearly three years. I believe that it was possibly due to menopause and hormonal changes.

1815939 tn?1377995399 Are you taking your riba with a substantial meal? My nurse said they this was important or it gives you nausea. I'm in California. I know this isn't available for everyone but medicinal cannabis does work, for nausea, headaches, and appetite.
Avatar n tn However, it may prove more difficult as your wife has had such poor nausea control, and may experience anticipitory nausea. This is where other triggers such as coming into the clinic, the smell of alcohol, set off the feeling of nausea. A plan needs to be made with the oncologist, the oncology nurses, your wife to best find a way to manage this problem. On the website Chemocare.
Avatar n tn My 30 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with idiopathic gastroparesis after suffering vomitting, nausea, diarrhea or constipation for 5 years. She is also borderline bi-polar II. One of her big problems is she has reactions to many meds. For instance, she cannot take any antihistamines, nor phenergan, or compazine because they result in severe akathesia. She can tolerate Reglan and is on that 4 times a day and has been prescribed Zofran, which helps some.
Avatar m tn I found it funny one time I was reading the side effects of one anti-nausea medication and the big side effect of this anti-nausea med was....wait for it....nausea. :) Go figure.
Avatar m tn I went home friday with the nausea and my doctor gave me Comtrex fro the Nausea and its saturday now its not as bad but its still there is it possible its from the surgery still thats what the surgeon told me please someone help me out Iam lost cause one doctors tellin me its not then the other is tellin me it is
1711722 tn?1356491154 Yesterday was ROUGH, as I struggled with Nausea ALL DAY. Thought for sure I would have to ask for Zofran today. Thankfully, that is not the case (at least not yet). I decided to try something different. My nurse had mentioned we could have our meds with ice cream. So I started the morning with ice cream, took the RIBA, then about 30 minutes later, had some salty Kebbler (fake) cheese and crackers, then took the VIC (the VIC has been making me nauseous big time). Wah Lah!!
Avatar f tn Both times was on the pre-meds of Aloxi, zofran, Decadron, Ativan, and then had more zofran, compazine, phenergan, nausea patch behind the ear, and last resort meds of Kytril, and Marinol which seemed to help a little, but we werent sure if it was the end of cycle from the chemo running through her body, or if it was working. My question is this 3rd round she is going to be on the EMEND this time, including all of the others, does the EMEND really make a big difference?

Avatar m tn I have been treated for Chronic pain post Cancers and therapies, and I am very tolerant to any Opiates. I would like to try using Marinol (synthetic THC) for pain; it helped my pain as well as my nausea when I went through my Stem-cell Transplant. I am in Athens, GA; does anyone know of a doctor willing to prescribe this medicine for pain (when you have not been diagnosed with a cancer...yet?
Avatar m tn 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..the BIGGEST sideeffect of marinol is overdose might cause you to ?????
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 n tn The usual dry mouth, breaking out all over, nausea, and just being TIRED all the time, are the ones that bothered me the most. Well, I'll quit rambling and wish you all success in your treatment.
Avatar f tn The gtube stopped her vomiting (it all comes out the gtube now), but daughter still has terrible pain and nausea and diarrhea with jtube feeds. The marinol and promethazine do MOSTLY knock her out so she doesn't feel the pain while feeding, but she wakes up anyway to run to the bathroom with diarrhea and yell from the pain. She now takes a little immodium to try to stop the diarrhea, but we can't seem to find that sweet spot between diarrhea and constipation.
Avatar n tn Hi there - yes, this is a BIG side effect for me. Look at all my posts ;) they are always after midnight. I find a couple things have helped me. One, you can get Ambien prescribed which is a sleep aid. The other thing I tried which has helped the most is Marinol. This is the "pot" pills that are prescribed to cancer patients for nausea and lack of appetite. If you take it an hour before bed, you will usually fall right to sleep.

Avatar n tn (95 degree temps and nausea don't mix well) For whatever reason the phenegran doesn't work as well as Zofran. Marinol is better still but makes me comatose A gastro would be able to do the Hydrogen Breath Test, if cost is an issue try having him eat nothing with Fructose especially High Fructose Corn Syrup. We went from a terribly ill child to a normal one in 30 days. Going hand in hand with the above would be nutritional deficiencies.
