Im on the lowest possible dose. It really helps with the pain. No real side effects as of right now. Will keep my eye on it.

It worked with Klonopin to give complete seizure control. My new neuro took it away I destabilized after a few months. I am furious at her no other neuro will prescribe it. Thinking about moving to Colorado for Charlottes Web.

not really a pot smoker...but am prescibed marinol synthetic thc for my stomach irritation so i can keep my other meds down and besides alleviating nausea it makes my back pain go from a living nitemare to an afterthought. If i could afford it i would take it everyday but unfortunately unless i have cancer of hiv my insurance wont pay for it and it is 190 dollars for a month of the lowest dose possible so i save up and chose sparingly which days to take it and which to suffer.

yes makes me feel a little better.
Marinol makes me hungry eliminates pain NO nausea enhances my mood I am told it reduces inflamation in my large intestine. I do get headaches if i havent taken it.

Exceptional for reducing my severe migraine nausea and potentiating the analgesic effects of Fioricet and Norco. The only notable side effects I've experienced are reddened eyes and a dry mouth while the Marinol is working.
