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. On the other hand, adult-onset cannabis use is not linked to a decline in IQ.
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.
620048 tn?1358021835 His facility will not recommend the use, but he supports the use if a doctor outside his facility recommends it. In Colorado, it is legal (Amendment 20 to the Colorado Constitution) and the recommendation costs about $60 a year. I guess to address twopack, the idea is not to get "wasted" like highschool, but to get enough to function or sleep and reduce the prescription drugs. No one has ever died from a Marijuana "overdose," but Tylenol kills several people a year.
233488 tn?1310696703 Legitimate FDA type research has been done on purified cannabis and useful products for cancer chemotherapy such as Marinol® and Cesamet® are available. These drugs do not produce psychoactive effects. The use of marijuana products such as “Charlotte’s Web” for childhood seizures and other illnesses is unproven, anecdotal and potentially harmful. Cannabis use for glaucoma treatment is never needed. Medical marijuana “cards” are widely abused.

1499589 tn?1289165881 In Washington State not to long ago, a transplant patient was denied an organ and subsequently died for marijuana use; this in a state that permits medical use of the herb. The TP center had it’s own protocol, regardless of state law. Fair? Who knows; at that point, does it matter much? Good luck— personally, I’d take my chances and treat without the grass, myself— seems like a small price to pay for keeping a liver.
461838 tn?1255793816 I could never have got thru cancer tx without it and it sure has helped with Hep C. I use marijuana and ativan as needed and that has got me thru 45 weeks so far! Good luck to your friend. Has she contacted the Lance Armstrong Foundation? ( They are a great source of information and support.

Avatar f tn 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. People need to be desensitized to medical marijuana, there is really no reason to be afraid of something that they are simply not fully educated on.
649848 tn?1484935765 In 1970, however, the Controlled Substances Act classified it as illicit and made possession a felony because, like other drugs in its category, it has a high potential for abuse, has no currently accepted medical use in the U.S., and lacks adequate guidelines for safe use under medical supervision. This hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm of significant parts of the population for using it, however. It’s long been considered relatively benign compared to opiates, stimulants, and even alcohol.
Avatar m tn Why I changed my mind on weed By Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent updated 7:28 AM EDT, Thu August 8, 2013 (CNN) -- Over the last year, I have been working on a new documentary called "Weed." The title "Weed" may sound cavalier, but the content is not. I traveled around the world to interview medical leaders, experts, growers and patients. I spoke candidly to them, asking tough questions. What I found was stunning.
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.
1159737 tn?1286520857 Between my headaches getting worse, my back pain due to my scoliosis getting worse, I am at the end of my rope and seriously considering it. (MMJ) Question is, if you use MMJ for your Chiari headaches, does it help? I'm asking because so many people talk of how migraine medicines don't work for these types of headaches and I don't want to put the money out for nothing. I know, my back is reason enough but I am just wondering if it would help with my head too. TIA for any comments!
137025 tn?1217768341 Megance can put on pounds but generally it puts on fat as opposed to muscle. Still it's part of an arnsenal you might use. Marinol is legal (I think) most everywhere, but of course ask your doctor. MyOwn, Don't really want to insert myself in this because I respect both of you. Similar to myself, Willows had a very difficult time on treatment and unlike myself did not SVR which must make it many times more difficult.
Avatar f tn It is less harmful then alcohol. If nothing else, it should most definately be made legal for medical use as the benefits for those with extreme pain, MS, those undergoing chemo (amongst other things) have been proven time and again. I do think it should be illegal to distribute unless licensed to do so (same as alcohol). Here it technically is still illegal, but unless you are a dealer or operating a grow op, they pretty much leave you alone.
Avatar f tn On the other hand people on stronger opiates like oxcycontin, morphine etc tend to be patients who are in severe pain with long term medical conditions that justify the use of such drugs because no doctor would prescribe such drugs unless there was a clear condition justifying the prescription or the doctor would risk losing his licence.
Avatar f tn The infectious disease Dr keeps bring up the Durapatch as the culprit but NS said they use the same one on all their surgeries so that can't be the issue. Am I crazy to think there could be someone out their that could get a reaction to it? I am looking for anyone who has issues with rejecting the patch just so I can look for some similar signs.
335728 tn?1331418012 This is straight from 'Ripley's Believe It or Not'....but I swear this is the truth, so help me God. I, too, was notified by a nurse that I had MS. When she called, she said, "Hi Heather, this is Dr. Burch's office. I've told Dr. Burch, I don't like being the one that has to make these kinds of phone calls, especially when it's bad news; but Dr. Burch believes you have MS." I was APPAULD that a NURSE would call me with such life altering news. A NURSE!
Avatar m tn Over the years, I kept having episodes and gradually developed weakness, spasticity and numbness on one side, my right arm and leg, that became a problem. I now have to use forearm crutches on occasion to be able to get around. Recently, I've had the vision in both eyes go completely, in a scintillating scotoma, which I guess is migraine. Only lasted about 30 minutes, each time, no other symptoms other than feeling really tired.
Avatar f tn I know we tried, Maxalt, Neurontin, Topomax, Immitrex, Morpheine and a blood pressure medicine. I use to go get shots of Morphine or Demorahl. They would add an anti inflamatory & an anti nausea to my shot too. I tried so many drugs. Some worked & some didn't. The ones that worked gave me horrible side effects. The Neorontin & Topopax did great but they turned me into a zombie. I forgot how to go pee. I would sit on the toilet for 20 minutes & nothing would come out.
1747881 tn?1511918860 But even as pot reformers celebrated their long-sought victories, the threat of a confrontation with the federal government loomed. Both ballot measures would legalize recreational marijuana use only for adults, and cannabis would remain a controlled substance under federal law. In Colorado, Amendment 64 won with 54 percent of the vote in favor to 46 percent opposed. The measure allows the cultivation and sale of marijuana.
Avatar n tn Some people swear by it for helping the sides of tx. The big problem is it is illegal... aside from that, short term use can't hurt (much).
Avatar f tn I suggest you look into adrenal-ovarian-thyroid axis (OAT) imbalance, but conventional medicine is not where you will find any answers for this. I would look for a Doctor who has training through the Kalish Insitute (or similar), in functional medicine. Conventional Endocrinology does not address, nor recognize OAT imbalances until there's a endocrine/adrenal crisis!
29837 tn?1414538248 The man is a serious scientist and he, for one, is convinced that there is no liver toxicity involved with cannabis use. The French studies have tried to implicate cannabinoid receptors in the development of liver fibrosis. It's an interesting problem, discussed or rather yelled about here many, many times. I still insist that the increased presence of cannabinoid receptors in the body is compensatory, rather than a causal factor in cirrhosis.
Avatar f tn 1- Yes, many of us have these same symptoms 2- We do have a list of Drs the members here have used and liked. it is only for u to use to research and is not a referral nor an endosrement - 3-Not sure what u r referring to can u expand on this? 4- I had surgery and do not regret one part of may not reduce all symptoms but it does restore the CSF flow that is obstructed and that can cause more and more issues...
Avatar m tn ( Also, the negative side of taking this medicine, which I wasn't aware of before I started taking it: (http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn Have tried, the dose has been adjusted, I have been given medicine to counteract the symptoms but no good, - I am falling apart, have been since friday. Normally I am such a positive and strong person. Can't go through another 4 cycles like this. NO WAY!!! Want to be back to normal.
2131202 tn?1339967703 He stopped using it about a month prior to starting tx, because he didn't want anything else in his system starting tx. The nurse told him he could use it (very itchy & rashy in groin area), but could not take ketoconazole pills. He actually went into the restroom and applied it before he left Dr. office, and has been using it since. Anyone have experience w/ ketoconazole oitment?
Avatar n tn People with diabetes heal slower for example. use of MSM is a natural anti-inflammatory and has been shown in research to shrink the size of disk herniations. I would also suggest B complex vitamins and use ice at home not heating pads. Disk problems are inflammation. You control inflammation with ice not heat. I have disk herniations and was once basically paralyzed in my left arm due to disk bulging. Disk bulging is seen much like a Schmorl's node.
