Doubt about cannabinoids and fingolimod

Postby 623san » Sun Mar 30, 2014 2:42 pm


I'm a diagnosed MS patient for around 7 years or so. I've been taking Interferon B1a, first 44mu and now 22mu throughout all this time.

Around a week ago I discovered I had another relapse and the doctor recommended me to start with Fingolimod. But the first thing I did after that was checking Wikipedia and got to this quote:

Fingolimod has also been reported to be a cannabinoid receptor antagonist

Does that mean that once you start taking Fingolimod, the psychoactive effects of Marijuana won't affect you anymore? I've read about other cannabinoids besides THC which can be good for your health, some even endogenous. Would this antagonistic feature have any effect on those too?
