marinol

Avatar f tn Is it of your opinion that Marinol can be an alternative drug to treat Multiple Sclerosis? I cannot handle shots, and I know there are many side effects from the shots.
Avatar f tn Marinol is THC or "Medical" Marijuana. People with ADHD who use it are self medicating and (possibly) avoiding the issue of treating the real problem. I am sure that it makes them feel better. And there are probably "shops" out there that will "prescribe" it for you. As far as I know, no legit psychologist or psychiatrist would do so.
Avatar m tn It would be great if i didnt have to use marijuana and break the law, and could legaly use marinol and feel normal. and also do you think i am candidate for this.
Avatar f tn MS has many of the same symptoms especially the fatigue and pain, could I use Marinol for my treatment?
Avatar f tn Can I use the drug Marinol as an alternative drug in the treatment of MS?
Avatar m tn I also suffer from chronic back pain and use .25mg of Oxycodone when needed. I also use a drug called Acyclovir 200mg daily to control herpes virus. My concern is that these drugs may effect the treatment with Sovaldi/Olysio. I want to beat this virus this time! My Dr. knows of the drugs I take but doesn't seem concerned about their use while on treatment. I know a side effect of the treatment can be insomnia and am concerned my insomnia will worsen without use of the Xanax/Ambien.

Avatar m tn Cannabis Use in Teens Linked to Irreparable Drop in IQ Fran Lowry Apr 26, 2013 ORLANDO, Florida — Cannabis users who start smoking the drug as adolescents show an irreparable decline in IQ, with more persistent use linked to a greater decline, new research shows.

535089 tn?1400677119 It seems that many members are often having "bad" drug screens so again, here is some information on why your Test may be wrong. Medications & Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
Avatar m tn Yeah. Just be straight up. Btw - I use natural tx too. This one might not be near as relaxing, but ginger chews or green tea w/ ginger curbs nausea really well for me. Just a thot from a sunflower seed spitting fool. lol.
Avatar f tn Many states, countries, cities consider it beneficial enough to legalize its use for medical use. I'm ESLD b/hep c free, thanks to tx and otc meds and pot. I have no problem w/my liver w/pot. B/I have big time trouble w/junk food, pops, cheap candy, fried foods, caffine and too much red meat, never mind salty food. Now, I don't need any studies to prove it made tx bearable, b/c it did. I called it a toker's dream-no munchies no matter what.

Avatar n tn How come I can't get a doctor to prescribe me xanax, but they will prescribe alprolozam? Also, how do I get a doctor to prescribe Marinol? I am in constant pain -again due to Fibromyalgia. Marijuana is the only thing that helps me. I've had hundreds of different prescriptions and treatments over the last 17 years and nothing but a massage, hot tub, and Marijuana help ease my non-stop pain.
Avatar f tn when I use it, and I'm using the lowest dose possible (both marinol and vaporized), it's almost pathetic how little I use, which is why it's so surprising that I get such strong effects. It feels like I'm going insane when I use it. I'm a type-a and I like feeling in control. Sometimes it's so bad that I feel like I've slipped out of time, or I see inanimate things moving, like in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
233488 tn?1310696703 The legislative route being used to introduce medical and recreational marijuana illegally and dangerously circumvents this FDA drug testing process. Federal law also mandates that marijuana use and possession is illegal but Presidents and the Justice Department have chosen to ignore the laws they swore to defend. Legitimate FDA type research has been done on purified cannabis and useful products for cancer chemotherapy such as Marinol® and Cesamet® are available.
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.

620048 tn?1358021835 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.
527890 tn?1263786727 Truvada (HIV meds), Marinol (appetite), Valium (stress from the pain), and Percocet (started for peripheral neuropathy). My percocet use over the past few years has dramatically increased due to the non specific body pain I feel in most of my major joint areas, including in order of pain are: back, neck, knees, shoulders, hips, hands, feet over the past few years. Pain is soothed with heating pad, but at time it feels like I am being stabbed especially in behind my knees.
560501 tn?1383616340 involved with Sativex and that eliminates the temptation for illicit drug use and removes that argument from the debate. I would really like to see the US move forward on treating nerve pain and approve this as another option for all of us. be well, Lulu ps tonya it's good to see you back!
Avatar f tn he recommended that I quit smoking until after my pregnancy and I even told my OB when was asked about *recreational drug use* (which for me wasn't recreational at all but just to control my disorders so I could function on a normal daily basis) that since I couldn't afford the Marinol and ins. wouldn't cover it that I smoked instead, they just told me that I would need to stop smoking during my pregnancy.

224049 tn?1204594715 When it comes to a drug that is currently listed in schedule I, if it is undisputed that such drug has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and it is further undisputed that the drug has at least some potential for abuse sufficient to warrant control under the CSA, the drug must remain in schedule I.
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 I don't know what to do. I can easily go back and have another script wrote but I want off this drug. I am addicted. I took my last pill today. I have been trying to take small doses over the past three days. Tonight I went to bed and can not sleep. I have a urge to cross my arms in front of myself and clench them so tight. It it the strangest thing. I'm restless. I can't sleep. I am a good soldier, and a husband and a father. It will damage my career if my unit found out. I am scared.
572651 tn?1531002957 It differs from the synthetic drugs liky Marinol (than on one prescribes). The levels of THC is what makes the drug work so well. In some countries it is marketed only as a drug for MS. A few other countries also use it for cancer. The US is now is phase III trials for Cancer pain. I can't tell if it will be used for MS. I hope it will be approved and avail. for more than cancer. This is an area where our process is slower. I wonder if it will fail because it has too much THC in it.
Avatar f tn There is still a lot of research to be done in this wonder drug and the discovery of cannabinoids and their uses. It has even been thought to cure cancer. However this doesnt make it ok to do something illegal. Try and discuss this with his pcp and consider a recommendation for the medicinal use. Maybe you could do some research and present your findings with the family.
Avatar m tn They tried every other anti Nausea drug including Marinol which is suppose to have the same thing the in the MJ but it does not work. The MJ is the only thing that works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
