  • 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
  • Good effect of marijunana for hematuria

  • Does paxil use cause lymphoma or other types of cancer
    I have been taking Paxil daily since 1997. For 14 years, I have had severe itching, a constant low grade fever with chills and night sweats. The itching is constant and so extreme that I scratch until the top layer of skin is gone, leaving a large area of scabs. The lymphoma tumors just appeared 6 weeks ago. I was also recently diagnosed with myeloma. I feel that Paxil may be to blame. I do not have a family history of cancer. I have been taking Trazodone at bedtime for 14 years also, which might also be a cause.
  • Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
    Marijuana does not cause Pulmonary arterial hypertension, instead it treats it. This study proves that the indigenous cannabinoid, anandamide, lowered aldosterone levels, and therefore would lower blood pressure (http://www.odon.uba.ar/uacad/fisiologia/docs/nuevos/expression.pdf).
    For more than 15 years, no blood pressure medications would keep my blood pressure down. I would be on two medications, yet hospitalized with a pressure of 200/130 when I stopped treating my illness with cannabis. Now, I am on no blood pressure meds, and keep my pressure down around 130/78. I would have had a stroke years ago without it.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I went to the hospital that I previously have had stroke/aneurysm coiling, active aneurysm in my neck. Have gone to same hospital when I had 3 TIA's. I have been taking Paxil and Xanax for 23 years. Could not find a PCP as I am a cash paying customer with no insurance. (My PCP retired.) Ran out of my medication (Paxil and Xanax), tried for a week to find new PCP to become established. No luck. After 5 days, I began vomiting and thinking suicidal thoughts (to me - normal for coming off 60 mg of Paxil in 5 days.) I explained to ER intake my symptoms and thoughts, told them I googled "Quick and Painless ways to die". She stopped listening as I also stated that I ALSO googled how long suicidal thoughts last after coming off Paxil cold turkey. I was there for HELP. What happened next is the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. I began a tirade that lasted hours. Using the most horrendous names you could think of... (Mel Gibson type tirade) at staff. Engaging them in aggressive behavior, calling names, spitting, screaming obscenities as loud as I could, thrusting my pelvis in the air, slapping it yelling that if they had to watch me then they were trying to watch my crotch and here it is... I AM NOT THIS KIND OF PERSON. Referring to an African American nurse as a mf'ing black, c*%k sucking whore, etc. They decided to restrain me. At this point, I begin to loose recollection of what happened. The last memory I have is that my boyfriend of 11 years KNEW something ELSE was wrong and he decided to take me to another hospital and he would NOT let me harm myself. NO! They called security, at our request, to help us out of there. They came and my boyfriend became aggressive with security. They asked if we wanted police. We said YES. I am convinced that they caused me to have a stroke. The last thing is screaming to my bf to go home, I loved him and did NOT want him in jail. I lay in that hospital, apparently until the next afternoon when they transported me to a mental institution. I have no recollection of leaving the hospital, the ambulance ride there. I slightly remember a couple of speed bumps going into facility. When I arrived the only thing I remember is ripping up paperwork when they told me where I was and crawling into bed. I vaguely remember them calling for meals but I gave an I'll be there in a minute, or I'll go to the next one answer. Apparently, I had been sleeping for three days. Remember being awakened to take pills but no one ever checked on me. I KNOW I HAD A STROKE. Is there any test to tell if a person has recently had a stroke?? Thank you very much.
