"I am in pain ALL THE TIME; my diagnosis is chronic back/leg pain, (fibromyalga) severe anxiety disorder, sever depression disorder, and wasting. My normal weight is 127, I currently weigh 90 pounds and cannabis is all that helps me. What can I do? I was on Cymbalta 120mg, MegestrolAcetate 40 mg- 4 teaspoons a day, Gabapentin 600mg 3 times a day, Oxycodone 20mg every 6 hours and Metoprol 12.5 mg-twice a day. I no longer take most of these meds due to cost and because I lost my doctor. I need help…. "
Hello. Medical Marijuana would be a great alternative for pain management. I would recommend starting at 1:1 THC:CBD low mg (2mg for example), titrating upwards with CBD dominance if needed. THC may exacerbate Anxiety, so I would recommend against titrating towards a THC dominant ratio. Medical marijuana may also serve as an appetite stimulant and help with depression. THC demonstrates analgesic, anti-emetic, and anti-inflammatory properties, whereas CBD possesses anti-psychotic, anti-seizure, and anti-anxiety properties. Even if you dont have insurance, you can get low-cost or free health at certain health care centers in your area. If you don’t have insurance, you may be able to work out a payment plan.
