- I use cannabis to control my ritalin side effects. is this good? (2 answers)
-Hi everyone,I was diagnosed A.D.D. in July 2012 and I started smoking everyday(after work,evening) since April 2013 and right now we are November 2013.
(sorry for my bad English)
I've stopped last week from smoking cannabis because I wanted to experiment and inform myself if it was really helping me.
-since I've stopped, the side effects are back and they are the same has before April 2013.
-I smoked one or half a joint per day in the evening and it was removing every conditions and symptoms mentioned.
-I still work out every day at the gym and even before smoking, work out was not effective on decreasing or stabilizing my ritalin side effects.
*I wanted to know long term effect on this ''auto-medication''
*I'm worried about the quality of the cannabis that I buy. I mean, there is alot of type of marijuana and the sativa's one are really effective on me.I also notice that the Indica's and the most chemical one are increasing my anxiety.
-I'm pretty tired to not really know what i'm buying.
Are there a solution for me or any other solutions?
- My daughter is on cimzia. she had one dose of cimzia and has lost her appetite and is having excessive sweating episodes. anyone else have this side effect?
My daughter has JRA. Been on Humira, Enbrel, Remicade and now Cimzia. Inflammation in joints is not under control so we switched to Cimzia. We never had side effects from the other TNF's except her sicknesses would last longer. Within 24 hours of getting her first dose of Cimzia, the hot flashes-excessive sweating episodes started lasting 20 minutes. No fever. This has happened once or twice a day since. And no appetite all week. If she eats, she gets nauseated because she doesn't feel hungry. Doc says all TNF's have same side effects and he has no patients that reported this sweating issue.
Anyone have these same side effects and do they go away with time? My daughter has never felt worse on a TNF, usually just joint pain that didn't go away. Help!
