Sativex - bringing it from Canada into US - allowed?

Hi all,

I'm in Canada, on Sativex and like to visit the States frequently. Am I allowed to bring it across the border..with a doctor's prescription of course ;-) ...Do I declare it as a Narcotic at the border?

Any help would be appreciated. I know Sativex is still in Stage 3 federal trials in the US, but not sure if it has been approved yet.

Thanks ...

intracranial hypertension in pediatric MS

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27909013

Children with MS were compared to children with primary intracranial hypertension. Both groups had comparable cerebrospinal fluid opening pressure, which is the pressure reading taken at the start of a spinal tap. It does not mention a control group but presumably both the pediatric MS group and the pediatric primary intracranial hypertension group have higher opening pressures than a healthy group would.

If this is true for pediatric ...


Does it get better? Stomach pain & nausea

Hello,

I started Tecfidera on Oct. 30th, just finished second week of maintenance dose. I've had an iron stomach all my life, never had bowel problems - until now.

My question for ...

Thanks for ...

I started having symptoms of numbness and tingling first in my right foot and then in my right hand for a few days, and now for the past 2 months I'm having numbness/tingling/burning exclusively in my left hand and fingers. I have also been experiencing fatigue, muscle spasms and cramping in my legs, as well as dizziness, depression/anxiety, and frequent UTIs.

I saw a neurologist who sent me for a brain MRI without contrast, and ...
