Re: Using Medical Marijuana

http://www.shortnews.com/start.cfm?id=61563 Googled 'marijuana good for ms' and one of the results returned was a simple news article about the April 1st 2007 edition of Nature Medicine that indicates cannabis to be a disease modifying drug (DMD). Since cannabis acts as a nervous system regulator, s...

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

mikeyjinx Marijuana and the cannabinoids within are actually neuro-protectors. It's highly (no pun intended) that pot pushed you from RRMS (remitting/relapsing) to CPMS (chronic/progressive). The heavy metals and chemicals used to fertilize pot however, those do have the potential of triggering a re...

Re: Sativex?

That excuse, that doctors could face legal litigation for prescribing Sativex, it's an excuse handed down to them by the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Nothing more than a quick and convenient tactic to help these indifferent doctors out of difficult situations. And it's a huge list of canned e...

Re: Anyone have news on Sativex?

Yeah, move to Canada. However, most doctors in Canada won't prescribe it, viewing as nothing more than liquid pot. And the USFDA likely won't approve Sativex anytime soon, it's manufactured in Great Britain and no US drug company want to have their potential profits hopping the pond.

Re: Are you using Sativex? Tell me about it.

Wish that I could help, but in my experience and research, doctors in Canada rarely, if ever, prescribe Sativex to MS patients. Guess they're all fearful that some of us might try to smoke it somehow.

Re: Sativex?

I agree, cannabis is a drug, just as is nicotine, aspirin, caffeine, alcohol, Sativex, morphine, codeine, not to mention all of the other chemicals we feed our bodies in the hopes of better health or addictive fix. It's the stigmatization of these drugs that bring about their elicit err. Oxycontin h...

Re: Sativex trial in Argentina

Two simple avenues of research to follow would be Health Canada, our nation being the first in the world to approve Sativex for prescription to adults with MS. They might be able to provide you with some of the trial study publications for Sativex. On an added note, the Health Canada guidelines for ...

Re: Sativex?

Well, your wife is one of the luck ones. Personally, I receive only rejections from doctors who can apparently be sued for even discussing such an illicit medication as the Health Canada approved drug Sativex, But I do agree, a bag of grass is far cheaper and far more effective than Sativex, though ...

Re: My Doctor's Opinion

Well, I hope your doctor has the courage to write you that prescription for Sativex. Of what I've heard first hand from patients experience with that medication, the perceivable cognitive effects are no worse than a glass or two of string wine. They also indicate that it may take 20 to 30 minutes be...

Re: Sativex?

The USA probably won't approve it anytime soon, likely for fear that people will try to start smoking. Besides, pharmaceutical companies in the USA are quietly working on their own version, growing and testing cannabis for extraction, hoping to undercut that UK business in the hopes of keeping profi...

Re: My Doctor's Opinion

jam The opiates your doctor keeps pushing will definitely have a negative effect upon your body. There's the obvious possibility of addiction, the constipation that comes with opiates, possible liver damage, and the cost of course. And though you may be opposed to cannabis in its raw form, there is ...

Re: My Doctor's Opinion

Just to put the issue of 'Liberation Therapy' to rest, it's all anecdotal at this point. In fact, research in the early 1970's indicated no correlation between MS and arterial venous blockage. And though there may be an abundance of patient testimony praising this still unfounded treatment, simple p...

Re: My Doctor's Opinion

Yes XMS, I've had that type of reaction from Canadian doctors before. From my experience however, it seems that all doctors in Canada are reluctant to acknowledge any form of prescribed treatment for MS, Cannabis related or otherwise. But on with my rather lengthy rantings upon Sativex . . . Sativex...
