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?

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Xanax and periphial neuropathy
    Took 1mg of Xanax 3x a day for 29 years and I have Peripheral Neuropathy! I withdrew off of over a year time and have been off of it for 5 months. I believe that it had something to do with my Neurpathy because the problems started when I started to withdraw from it! It is horrible! I wish that more people would report this about Xanax!
  • 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

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I've lost 65 lbs and all of my appetite during the last 12 months. I quit taking the Metformin 6 months ago and that hasn't changed anything. I've had a CT Scan and a Gastric Emptying Study done to confirm the diagnosis. I'm having a colonoscopy and an esphogealendoscopy in January to find any further cause of the damage.

    Have you ever had a fall or injure to the head? (I never had it) but I can relate to you. Because I had a dog that gave birth to these 5 puppies. One of the puppies that I gave away later had continues epilepsy. I later found out that the dog's owner abuse her a lot (hitting in the head.) But none of other 5 or the mom or dad had it (I own the mom & dad). The owner ended up giving the dog away to get killed. I had to go the shelter to take the dog back. One thing I noticed that the dog would get seizure whenever she heard loud noises (like my mom yelling) couple hours prior that. May be you could try to figure out if there was any pattern that could help you to prevent the seizures from happening. Some people think it's silly but one thing helps me going through difficult times is to focus on the positives by listening to the audio "The Secret" & "The Power" from Rhonda Burne. I hope you can get cured soon; miracles do happen. I wish you all the best.
