Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone taken cannabis for their pulmonary arterial hypertension and did it help slow the progression?
    Does cannabis work for PAH? I tried cannabis in cookie form. A small bite. It stopped my chest pains, my night sweats, and my bone pain, which I have had for years. I actually sleep all night. My breathing is much better. Does anyone know of any studies of using cannabis with this disease? I know there is Opsumit on the market but evidently the pharmaceutical companies have added other chemicals and it does not work.
    I need to know if there is a study and who can I contact?
  • Can u get cherry angioma on chest from smoking weed
    Had a red lump on my chest that kept bleeding if I trained of whacked off it the doctor said it was something similar to cherry angioma I got it removed and they are sending out results to me to see how I got it im just wondering can weed cause this when it was removed the doctor said it was a burst blood vessel but I'm wondering can weed have caused this
  • Does toviaz interact negatively with ibuproffen
    Male, 62 years old. Had a prostatectomy months ago (cancerous, 7 rating). One month after surgery, I started taking one 4 mg pill of Toviaz. Worked like magic with no side effects.
    Three weeks ago, I lost control again. The leakage was so bad in frequency that I had to go back to using pads. This lasted for 5 days before things gradually went back to "almost normal".
    The only difference in medication, food and drinks that I had in those 5 days is I used to take 2 ibuprofen pills (200 mg each) in the morning & 2 at night to deal with headache.
    Once I stopped taking the ibuprofen, things improved.
    Could what happened with me be the result of of interaction between Toviaz & Ibuproffen? I called Pfizer and the lady siad she does not have any information on this
  • Are there any interactions between abraxane (used in a chemotherapeutic treatment) and therapeutic cannabis?
    My mother is 58 years old. Two weeks ago, during a medical visit for a pathological thinness, we found a cancer in her pancreas that attacked her lymph nodes. My mother weighs only 19.5 pounds (43 kg) for 4'6" (149-150 cm). She will be chemotherapeutic treatment with Abraxane. I want to give her therapeutic cannabis, but I don't know if there are interactions between cannabis and Abraxane, or between cannabis and other components of chemotherapy. Someone can help me, please?
  • Cannabidiol interact topiramate
    Chronic Migraines, taking Topomax & propanidol with mild success. Are there any major interactions with cannabidiol (CBD)and the drugs I'm taking?

  • Valproat and marihuana
    I had two shots of marihuana and for a while everything was good, but than I started to feel sadness and my body started to shake a little. I was confused becase it was like never. My boyfriend sayed something usual but i was really hurt. I don't know how it happend. I felt so depresed and than angery to me, because I realized that I shouldn't do that and there was no reason to feel like this. My muscles contracted, it wasn't so bad but its kind of scary when you can't control it. Then I felt asleep and after wake up It was ok. I feel shame, because I wasn't more carefull. Hope it will help somebody.
  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
  • Ibuprofen and esophageal stricture
    After taking relatively high-doses of ibuprofen for many years, I developed an esophageal pain when swallowing large pills and experienced two unexplained events of esophageal spasm. A barium esophagram showed a stricture near the lower sphincter with a pencil-sized opening. Confirmed benign with a endoscopy and biopsy, it showed no gastric or duodenal ulcers from the ibuprofen, the stricture was expanded and I experience no discomfort now.
    I believe scarring of the esophagus was the result of taking ibuprofen often during the night with only a sip of water and then going back to bed. The ibuprofen dissolved in the water and by lying down immediately, the concentrated solution did not pass into my stomach but stayed in and irritated the lower esophagus for the rest of the night.
    To avoid future occurrences, the simple solution is to take ibuprofen with a full glass of water and avoid lying down for the next 30 minutes or so.
  • Marijuana - legalization will relieve suffering
    There is no single patient in this review. I have been an RN for over 3 decades and have cared for folks with a wide variety of symptoms who may have benefited from prescribed doses of marijuana (MJ). But sadly our elected officials, not medical professionals, are still deciding whether patients receive adequate pain relief. The following points are just food for thought:

    1. What is MJ's addiction potential? Well, let me confess; as a college student in the 70s I DID inhale (unlike Bill Clinton :D ) and I also snarfed down magic brownies. I wasn't that impressed with recreational use - it made me paranoid - but I'm still in contact with old friends who really enjoyed MJ. None of them continued to use after our college years. I know it's not exactly a double blind study!
    2. Smoking joints; will lead to lung disease. Probably but not to the extent that tobacco will. I found baking MJ in a little treat made it mellower and longer acting. Eating MJ may not be possible for those with nausea from chemotherapy since it's not very tasty. Smoking just part of a joint will increase the appetite making everything taste REALLY GOOD! Munchies are a must for those suffering from malnutrition!
    3. It seems that freshmen legislators are required to watch that old classic film "Reefer Madness". I can think of no other plausible reason to deny patients access to an FDA regulated and federally taxed medication. Unless it's election time and poorly informed constituents are hysterically hounded their representatives. These are the same people who believe that ONLY patients with endstage CANCER should have access to opioid analgesics (in Florida!). All other suffering people have to sign a 5 page "contract" that negates their patient privacy rights.
  • Weed and focalin xr combined experience
    I took a focalin xr 30mg at 8:00 in the morning during school. At break at 11:00 I smoked about 3 bowls of Girl Scout, which is a sativa. I have a huge tolerance to weed because I smoke twice a day. It was enough weed to get me kinda high, but since I was going back to school I didn't want to be trashed. When the two combined I was super hyper and couldn't really feel the weed but it generally takes about 15 minutes for me to feel the weed, and so by the time I get back to school I'm feeling it a little more. When I got back to school I was feeling a insane body high and some lightheadedness. It was a pretty awesome feeling since I could still feel the focalin in my system. This was my first time taking focalin but a week ago I took vyvanse 60 mg and have tried adderall a couple times prior, vyvanse is definitely my favorite though. The feeling peaked for about an hour and half, but once the weed high wore off I was strictly feeling the focalin only. My pupils were super tiny but a week before when I took a vyvanse my pupils were dilated the entire time. My eyes didn't change color though from the weed which might have to do with my tolerance they simply become very glassy. I felt very jittery throughout the day although and my mind was whirling after the weed which I thought would have the opposite effect, and I continued to be hyper until 10ish that night. I also felt very nauseous most the day because I didn't eat much before taking the focalin in the morning, and no urge to eat anything through the day until I smoked where I became mildly hungry. During the peak of the high Imy hands and feet also became fairly numb with a tingling sensation different than when there isn't enough blood reaching it. I wouldn't recommend this if you get bad trips . Although it's not a trippy or particularly hard drug, friends that have tried this have experienced paranoia and aggression.i If you have a little self control and are seeking a different experience than your regular weed high I would say give it a try, just maybe not at school or when you want to study. I'm not very experienced with stimulant pills and this may affect you differently, I don't know this is just my personal experience and I hope this helps

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Elavil, 25mg @ night stopped an 11 month chronic headache after a head injury, I sustained 1 1/2 years ago.
    Additionally, Neurologist prescribed 100 mg Lyrica for chronic back/nerve pain from moderate/severe spinal injuries, sustained 20+ years earlier. (Crushed/cracked verabrae and 3 intervertebral disc bulges)
    I had been using Ibuprofen daily in moderate to heavy dosage for the last 20+ years. (800+ mg daily B/4 and then continually after recent head injury)
    I was advised to stop/reduce use of Motrin to 1/2 month or less. It is still the best pain relief but have reduced to PRN, perhaps 200 mg alternate days.
    Since treatment with Lyrica I've noticed reduced nerve pain and stopped using Elavil for sake of not feeling so "wrecked" in the mornings. I have also developed a severe sleep apnoea, treated unsuccessfully via CPAP device which is unbearable to use. I have subsequently suffered with depression/mood disorder for 20+ years and am currently un-treated for this long-standing vulnerability which came back with a vengence after the head-injury. I feel irregularity to my heart beat by the end of the day. I feel suicidal and violently angry.

    Found this because I have similar symptoms- brain injury 2005, 12 herniated discs with osteophytes, migraines, seizures and the like. 1. The Motrin is an easy fix. Swap it out for Mobic (Meloxicam). I replaced 1600mg/day for 12mg Mobic and it's easier on the stomach. 2. The Evril and Lyrica taken together causes dizziness. Get a different antidepressant or swap the Lyrica for Neurontin (gabapentin). I had to because I couldn't stand up without passing out. 3. The B/4 I'm stumped on as its not approved for use in the United States but I know it can help with seizures but a friend of mine tells me it makes her sick. 4. Waking up at night. No where in your medication is a pain reliever or muscle relaxer for your back. An anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen will not cut it when you lay on it. Get both, whether low level like Flexoril and Hydrocodone, or if needed Soma and Methadone. Something is needed to relieve the pain on your back which, can also cause the headaches. 5. Anger - A head injury can cause an inability to control ones emotions, even reacting inappropriately (wrong emotion or too much emotion) in circumstances. If this is the case, treat yourself as a toddler and try to relearn how to react (counting to 10, timeouts) and informing loved ones this is going on. Another thing is that you may have Marijuana rage. This is something I thought was untrue until my brother-in-law stabbed his wife's hand with a fork for being near him while smoking with his buddies. Just as there are angry drunks, there are angry pot heads and TBI can change how you react.
