Marinol smoking

Common Questions and Answers about Marinol smoking


Avatar m tn I want and need to stop smoking pot but want to avoid the w/d's, need to work etc. It's my understanding Marinol can ease the symptoms considerably. Anyone know how to get it? I tried going to the Dr but he would not prescribe it off-label. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I have pain in both of my knees and have had a cortazone shot in my arm for pain over the last year. I continue to here that Marinol can relief pain in that manner. 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 m tn Does anyone know of any data regarding pot smoking during triple with incivek? I'm thinking that it could help with the nausea and other side effects?
Avatar n tn I can only bring up the obvious, like being in a car or enclosed space when others are smoking pot. There is a pill called Marinol which has THC in it? I'm sorry. Maybe you could ask for another test???
Avatar m tn I have liver cirrhosis and when I became ill, my doctor prescribed Marinol for weight gain. I had lost 85 lbs and gained 30 pounds with this treatment. My doctor discontinued the Marinol and my weight decreased. I am 6'2" tall and am considering smoking marijuana to achieve the weight gain I am comfortable with. Will this method injure my liver further or have no real effects to it?
Avatar n tn Thanks for your info I have not yet started the tx (hope to this week) and have not smoked weed for a long time, but I am not familiar with marinol, is it a script your dr would give you? I had thought of smoking the weed if the nausea was bad or if the appetite got bad.
Avatar f tn She asked me if I knew where to get pot when she gets really sick. Ant thoughts and ideas on this one? I quit smoking back in feburary with the exception of a few puffs last week when my friend was in town. Otherwise I'm doing great. The suboxone keeps the cravings away for the other stuff. I read of ppl having problems with it. God I wish it worked well for everyone who tries it.
1039578 tn?1293981696 why opinions on smoking cigarettes? i heard it fills up your lungs faster on the treatment? what about smoking reef?
Avatar f tn I have had surgery twice on my lower back and was put on gabapentin for nerve damage and the meds made me very sick so I started smoking pot, it work on my mother whom had cancer per the suggestion of her doctor but not a suggestion cause of it being illegal. The back pain is back and the surgean referred me to PM and gave me the same meds gabapentin and hydrocodone, so I started smoking again otherwise I get sick dont eat, puke bile.
1162446 tn?1262808503 Some people swear it only works for pain and/or nausea control when smoked and won't use the legal Marinol for that reason. I'll admit I tried smoking it myself years ago when I was vomiting several times a day from the worst bowel obstruction I've ever had. (Lost a couple feet of colon from that event.) It's an experience I don't care to repeat. It had zero effect on my nausea and the pain was even worse.
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 I'd rather have my teenager eating big macs than smoking pot. Smoking any substance is damaging to the bronchii and lungs. Any substance that alters mood or inhibitions is dangerous to recovered addicts and others for all the obvious reasons.
Avatar n tn Smoking marijuana has a energizing and life giving effect. For obvious reasons I need to find a alternative. Have tried several anti depressants and have not found one without undesirable and dibilitating side effects. Smoking pot is not a option. The question is, Is there an alternative way to take THC that is legal. Is it possible to get a product in pill form? Smoking and or eating pot is not a legal option but the benefit of being on THC is remarkable!
Avatar f tn It seems my level has went down and I'm hoping todays test is negative but does anyone know why it increased even after stopping smoking. My Dr. was extremely rude about it and told me I had to still be using. Anyone who could offer any advice or insight I would appreciate it greatly.
1499589 tn?1289165881 I think smoking weed is your choice. Just don't tell the doctor or nurse. I have heard of others doing it and don't recall if it caused any problems. I do know there were studies that it can affect the liver and cause fibrosis.
1163491 tn?1262895101 Is there a way to see if maybe there is a blockage without contrast such as an ultrasound? Could this be a complication from his previous surgery, if so any ideas? Another thing is smoking Marijuana seems to help keep some of the food down. Maybe aperscription to marinol?
Avatar n tn I started smoking when I was 8, was up to a pack a day by 13 and quit at 36 in 2001, so smoking was a way of life for me. I grew up incorporating smoking into everything from eating to how I dealt with stress, so believe me when I say it was as hard for me as anyone. The way to do it is with the patch. I tried the patch in the past but wasnt successful until I followed the 5 important factors to success. 1. Don't run out, even for a day. Keep your supply full.
620048 tn?1358021835 The US is not yet ready for that. Marinol isn't even close. All THC and no CBN, and there have been overdoses with Marinol. I hold a great job with a fortune 20 company that knows I augment the treatment my disease with MMJ. They are not worried about it. They have a bigger issue with alcohol and prescription drug use in other employees.
Avatar m tn While I don’t have the particulars to your study, by guess is that if they find you’re smoking pot, it’ll be a deal breaker. You should have copies of study documents; read through them carefully, and consider the implications. There is a pretty large body of evidence from controlled scholarly studies that suggests heavy marijuana use increases hepatic fibrosis, too. What is disputed is the definition of ‘heavy’; would a puff or two now and then cause harm?
Avatar f tn It was about using negative side effects of a drug to make someone quit using and if you read my post I didnt say people die from pot smoking, I said look up negative effects of smoking.
Avatar f tn 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. he was the most calm and collective I've seen him since his accident . it was like night and day .
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.
461838 tn?1255793816 The problem with nausea meds like zofran, and pills like marinol, is that during cancer chemo the nausea can be so bad that the patient cannot tolerate oral meds. I tried prescription nausea meds but they were horribly expensive and not particularly effective, even when I could hold them down.
Avatar n tn Vaporizing, if only because my throat can't handle smoking. I've been in desperate straights with the headaches and it's really helped take the edge off. Can't believe I'm turning into a pot head (again) at this age.
Avatar f tn Flare-ups of pre-existing >auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis >and Crohn's Disease are common. Marijuana can mitigate the majority >of these side effects as well as offering effective help to those >patients where alpha-interferon treatment is not indicated.
Avatar n tn I have since change many things in my life, medication, food and quit smoking cold turkey 9 weeks ago today. 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 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.
1159737 tn?1286520857 Let me start by warning you that smoking is bad any way you go about it. But, there are vaporizers that allow you to take in the beneficial properties, with out the carcinogens. The pharmaceutical industry is working on a inhaler type device for safe use of THC. Coughing is also not advised for Chairi patients as it is a valsalva manover, so dont just go and smoke, it can make your condition worse and even make your headache worse.
163305 tn?1333672171 OOPS! I stand corrected. I Just read the post and not the question. Must be time for me to take a few tokes! LOL I'm outta here *poof* Happy healing all!
