Avatar f tn So, he perscribed marinol (he wanted to give me options) and told me vaporizing marijuana was ok too. This was actually after my cardiologist thought this would be a good plan for me. So I tried it. The Marinol works fantastic, the marijuana works almost as well too. There's little to no pain when I use it before I usually get an attack, and during an attack, it stops the pain in its tracks. It's really amazing. The problem: The problem is that I HATE the psychoactive effects from it.
Avatar m tn I have read many articles online that many people nationwide with TN find releif from cannabis wether it's Marinol or smoking. I live in Connecticut and obviously it's illegal. But my question is more based on the Neurontin and cannabis combination. I've read it's ok but will make you veer drowsy. Honestly I'd rather be drowsy off that than a highly addictive opiate. Please can I have your thoughts.

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 m tn I live in a state that doesn't believe in medical weed or the use of Marinol but a few tokes now and then kept the nausea down and had a tendency to make me want to eat something. That last advice I got from a priest in the HepC Neighborhood.It sure beat shoving phenergan suppositories up my butt. As for aches and pains Ibuprophen because acetaminophen destroys the liver. If something stronger is needed Vicoprophen( percs with ibuprophen instead of tylenol.

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 m tn I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have "no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse."

Avatar n tn Usually if you bring the subject up where he receives treatment, you can get some hints from the staff. And although it is a Schedule II drug, the doctor can write him a script for Marinol, which has the active ingredient of marijuana, THC, and stimulates appetite. It worked wonders for my father-in-law when he had lung cancer---he ate well until just three days before he died. Does your friend have a close family member to act as an advocate at doctor appointments? If not, do you wish to?
Avatar f tn CMF Chemo is supossed to be mild, but I guess, is up to the dosis. I heard Marinol works, but I do not know if they can prescribe here in New York, I will go thru the 6 remaining treatments, I am not a quitter, besides, I can not wait to go Home. I will prevail, not without complaining. This wednesday , I will have the Port placement, (the last pinching in my vein) I wish you all the best! MERRY CHRISTMAS ! and Thanks !!!
476246 tn?1418874514 Given you schedule -- and don't be surprised if it changes once you start treating -- I'd take my first riba with bkfast and the second with dinner. That way you'll have plenty of food/fat with it -- plus if you eat at seven, you still have five hours before bedtime.
Avatar n tn I've heard stories about how it helped with arthritis, chemotherapy symptoms, glaucoma, alcohol abuse and the list goes on. I don't understand why it should even be a Schedule I drug. I can understand cocaine and heroine, but marijuana? Must be the politicians attitudes. I'd vote for legalizing and taxing it like tobacco.
Avatar m tn Narcotic painkillers are schedule II controlled substances. Marijuana remains a schedule I controlled substance in the United States, meaning the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) finds that it has no currently accepted medical use, lacks accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and has a high potential for abuse.

Avatar m tn Go ahead and take it. But, don't get so relaxed that you have another med schedule snafu.
Avatar n tn Fortunantly I work a job where I can go into work very early and be home early, as I am not on a set schedule. But there are times when the symptoms do interfer with my job no matter what time of day. I consider that a day when it "bloodied my nose", but the next morning I wake to the little note on my bathroom mirror that says "TODAY IS AN 8TH DAY".....then i go make my coffee and see the little note there that says "TODAY IS AN 8TH DAY"....
4226456 tn?1354123528 I will say once every couple weeks I may actually sleep in but am careful not to get back into the same habit. It might be that the schedule I allowed myself to be on could have contributed to my overall & continious fatigue. This may not be helpful for you. Of course this is just one health problem we have to deal with in our health. You have physical problems you deal with daily too that probably affect how you feel.
Avatar f tn She became so happy and motivated and most importantly could eat as she would go days without eating as the chemo made her lose her appetite. Those buds are on this Earth for reason! She did try Marinol (synthetic THC made by a pharmaceutical company and its intent is to mimic the effects of marijuana) but my mother said it didn't even compare to the real stuff.
Avatar n tn How is it prescribed for you? Did you take any yet? Did he put you on a tapering dose schedule with the phenobarbital? Dealing with withdrawal: Stick to the taper plan,rest,remain calm (your nervous system needs to heal),force fluids and eat small meals. I don't know about a "solution" you mean the Thomas Recipe"? Headache is a major withdrawal sympton along with anxiety and insomnia. Be sure to stick with the taper!
Avatar n tn I should mention there have been 2 occasions in 7-8 years I've run low due to stupidity, other than that, I find if I stay on schedule I do well and do not crave. Discipline is needed and realize that the extra pills on some days makes you run short on your script. It does take some discipline though. Last time I ran short I posted my experience and I just make sure to stay on schedule. No depression and no withdrawal due to stupidity.
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 f tn I hope we all start feeling at least a little better when we are done with week 12. Joe, It seems like we are on the same schedule (I take shot 8 tomorrow) what are your latest platelet and hgb levels?
