Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 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?
- Can smoking marijuana help episcleritis
recurrent episcleritis, have not respondent well to steroid drops,nor oral steroids.
- Can i get sporotrichosis from smoking or handling marijuana
1 1/2 years ago i had a stomach bleed. Hemroids. Alchoholism. Recreatoinal drugs. Recently i have been working in horse barns chicken coops and an organic marijuana farm. Many plant cuttings started dying very fast due to fungus gnat infestation. After handling thousands of dead dying and rotting plants in late June i accumulated several small sores that appeared to be staphylococci. Treated for mrsa with pills and topical cream. Was also having urinary track infection symptoms as well as irritated hemroidal rectum. Suggested Epsom salt baths and drink for detox and stool loosening. Within 1 hour suffered from magnesium sulfate toxicity. ER treated with munopriocin and ciproflaxin antibiotics @15,000 milligrams. Finger check in anus for prostate problems. Hurt very bad and finger was not in anus more than 1 inch. 3 days later staff symptoms were back and more aggressive. This time traveling my lympnatic track
Ulcerated lesions behind both ears chest shoulder neck forehead forearms . Lesions come fast and leave very slowly. They tingle itch swell And leak off and on thruout the day. Scarringvery badly. 8 months And still happening. No alcohol for 6 + months. Doctors will not take very gross samples from me and their biopsies keep turning up negative for bacteria and fungal. What is this?
- I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?

- 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
i had hematuria sence 3 years,i had done lots of tests like radiology,cystoscopy,kidney biopsy and many more,but all reports were normal,so after that i started a new type of thearpy that was HOMEOPATHY.but there was no results,but suddenly in party i has smoked weed sence that time there was no blood in my urine,marijuana was a very big medicine for me.and now i dont have any problem again in my urine,5 months had happend but still now no blood
- 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.
- Pruritus ani. and marijuana (1 response)
i just got popped for smoking weed on a drug test 2 weeks ago. OF COURSE i was crushed by this news,BUT,i think not smoking the last 2 weeks has CURED my pruritus ani. I suffered and i mean suffered with this the last 2 years and tried giving up everything i thought might have caused this. Certain foods,beer,diet soda to no prevail. I havent felt this good down there in over 3 years!!!! If i knew that was what was causing this,i would of quit years ago and never got popped in the first place!!!! And yes,i would rather give up smoking weed then feel what i felt the last few years.
Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 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.
