Common Questions and Answers about What is marinol thc

marinol

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 f tn Hi there, Welcome to the forum. Without researching, I really don't know what marinol is. I've not heard of it, sorry. Before I started taking a DMD I was worried about the side affects too, but seems there is always something to content with when you take a med. It's a very hard (was for me) personal decision to make and too a lot of weighing benefits to risks, etc. I respect your decision. How are you feeling symptom wise with your MS?
Avatar f tn that was 10 months ago and shes worried about social serveses taking the baby if she has any thc leavals. she also says lactating mothers tend to hang on to thc . is this possible to still have traces of thc after 10 months or is she lieing?
Avatar n tn 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 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???
1390055 tn?1365618655 I'm not saying that is a bad thing on my Doctor's part, because she is absolutely brilliant at what she does, and not only that, but she cares about her patients. She has saved SEVERAL lives, including my own. But wow, just wow, It makes me feel like that I will never be able to function in society ever again. I am actually thinking of moving out of Utah, and resorting to using cannabis (medicinal marijuana) if I can get it prescribed to me.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure what her stage is.what treatment is that?interferon free?
Avatar m tn I am not sure why she has done this because I told her that I feel some doc treat me like a drug addict because I have hep c, and now she thinks I am one?!? or because she is seeing if my liver is clearing certain drugs or what? But, I use marijuana sometimes for Nausea. At most a couple hits, and most of the time I just live through it but it can be very frustrating. I also got another disorder which contributes to the nausea Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome..
Avatar n tn , my doctor would have scripted it if I had wanted. In the pill form anyway. It is called Marinol. Hopefully someone else will come along who knows about trials. I know New Sojourn gets medical marijuana.
1162446 tn?1262808503 melissakay - yes, medical marijuana is available in pill form by the name of Marinol. It contains THC which is the active ingredient of the marijuana plant. 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.
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.
461838 tn?1255793816 I just found out that she takes THC, but it is at the point where not much of anything is helping short of a miracle. She has lost 10 pounds, is back in the hospital and family members are telling me to pray for her to be comforted. This has been over a 2 year battle and sometimes the wars are not worth the battles. I think she and her family have come to this realization. Thanks please pray for tender mercies for my friend Cathy, she is truly one of the good guys.
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 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? And when they studied these pot smokers, where these folks concurrently using other substances such as alcohol that might skew results?
233488 tn?1310696703 A review of medical and mental damaging effects of marijuana can be found in Missouri Medicine 2012. Suffice here to say that THC is especially dangerous to children under age 15 and increases the incidence of mental health problems, in some cases the risk of Schizophrenia is increased 10 fold compared to the general population. Ambition and drive is blunted, memory impaired and IQ may be reduced permanently by as much as 8 points.
Avatar f tn What is the link to fibrosis? I don't understand that part. From what I understand about marinol (have not used it) it does not have any psychological effects. Part of the reason to use cannabis is for these effects. I agree that any smoking cannot be good for the lungs, etc. However, the amount of smoke consumed is much smaller than even half a tobacco cigarette. Also, there are alternatives to smoking.
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 doctors have suggested using it with SOC for years, primarily because it helps with side effects and has kept people on treatment who otherwise would have quit. There is no doubt that even without the complications of hcv tx, some people have bad mental reactions and cannot use cannabis. My advice to anyone, would be to use it sparingly and be aware of yourself.
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 .
335728 tn?1331418012 My doc has thankfully decided to take me off the oxy and wants to try a med that apparently is used for Fibro treatment that is THC based but I didn't catch the name. Does anyone know the name of it and has anyone tried it? The oxy did nothing to alleviate my pain and the Lyrica is not doing anything either. I am just sooo glad to be off the oxy! I can't stand the way it makes me feel and I can't function while on it!

917763 tn?1311632496 There is an old thread around from years ago when I was on treatment I think and it had a study that coffee was actually good at helping fight fibrosis (i think that is what it said another old timer might remember). Boy once some of us heard that we were in HEAVEN.
Avatar n tn It hurts a lot to have someone you care about sick and probably in for a rough ride. May I ask what kind of treatment he is on? Do you know if the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and/or has metastasized? If this is indeed an aggressive cancer with a poor 5-year survival rate, your friend is entitled to whatever he wants and needs---which, in his case, could be a boatload of drugs. Right now I am actually more worried about you.
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 n tn I think medical pot, especially Marinol, is a really good option for our sx.s. It has been used for HIV tx. for along time. My doc wouldn't presribe it because I was getting really depressed & "he said" it can cause depression. I'm not sure if it really can, cuz I never felt depressed back in the old days. One real plus that I can see immediately is the munchies. I know I had no appetite while on tx.
203342 tn?1328740807 I looked briefly into it and was impressed by not only how much it may help people (medically) but how carefully it is regulated when it is used medically. It is strictly done in a doctor's office and carefully monitored. It's not like they are going into a back alley somewhere and buying this from drug dealers. They also appear to monitor the amount and usage. I don't think people can just go to a doctor and ask for it, either. They appear to have to have a legitimate medical reason.
1159737 tn?1286520857 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. It can also cause dependency like many other things that help with pain. Other than that It helps tremendously!!! I have my medical marijuana prescription, but It isn't for everybody.
Avatar n tn Electric brownies. I doubt that it matters how the drug is obtained. I would venture a guess that it is the processing of the THC which affects the liver and the manner at which it enters into the blood stream would not matter except to affect how quickly it enters.
