I'm a difficult case of fibromyalgia, poor treatment response since 15. I'm on a pharmacy of meds including 150mg daily oxycodone, clonipin, cymbalta, gabapentin. Ext. Well my liver diagnostics are coming back elevated. Thing is I would drop all of them in a heart beat if I found ONE thing that works. medical MJ is NOT legal in Utah. I've lost 35 pounds in 8 months or so but not enough my drs care. My top three symptoms? Pain, nausea, anxiety. Followed by exhaustion. I had to leave the last 3 jobs from this and I just want to try something that may work. Anyone here with ANY fibro/marinol experience? I'm not looking to be high, just functional. I swear Utah will be the 50th state to legalize.

I am very sorry that you're so miserable and having such problems.

Marinol, so far, has only been found effective at treating loss of appetite, it's mainly used for AIDS patients, or to treat the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatments. Thus, it might help your appetite and nausea, but it will do nothing to help with pain, anxiety or exhaustion. Its most common side effects can include mood changes, anxiety, panic and confusion, so it may actually worsen some of your issues.

How high are you liver enzymes?

Marinol is only synthetic THC and does not contain any other cannabinoid or compound.

Cannabis contains hundreds of beneficial compounds and there is no doubt in my mind that it would help with the symptoms you have described. I'm sorry it is not available in your state medically. It really is sad what our government does to us.

One last thing: Marinol is really, really expensive.

If marinol is refrigerated for 3-5 years, is it still effective and safe to use? Does it make anxiety worse?
