I have been on Marinol for a few years…

Hi Diane,
See if your doctor can write you a script for Marinol.
This is the pure form of Marijuana, THC, in a pill form.
I have been taking it for years now, and now my doctor is forcing
me to take at least one per day, at 4pm, since my weight is in a
nosedive and getting closer to where a feeding tube may be needed,
all from the chemo I have been on, Cytoxan, for the past 3 years.

When I first got them, my script reads to take one to three, up to three times per day.
So I took one–it did take some nausea away, gave me some munchies, kinda makes you forget about your pain, and slight euphoria.
So the next day I took two—YES-a definite HIGH, and you definitely forget about any type of pain.
So, the next day I took three–FORGET IT–you become a vegetable, and watch TV just watching the colors, la la la…yeah-totally stoned. Don’t go there.

If your doc can write the prescription, and the pharmacy can fill it, then don’t worry about a thing.
