marinol!

My kidney dr. started me on Marinol 2.5 mg capsules for my appetite. I think this might be better than smoking it plus now my insurance can pay for it.

Well CVS filled it like a normal script and insurance paid for it. I actually have dronabinol it's the generic of Marinol. I just took my first one so check back in an hour or so.

I think that's the desired side-effect.

One per day to start but i may have wasted this first one by taking it while hooked up to the dialysis machine. Some drugs get filtered out some don't so we'll see.Don't know what the true cost is; my drug co-pzy was $1.10 for thirty.

Panama Red is back in town...

The judge don't know when Red's in town
He keeps well hidden underground
But everybody's acting lazy
Falling out and hangin' 'round

My woman said, "Hey Pedro
you're actin' crazy like a clown"
Nobody feels like working
Panama Red is back in town

This is fascinating. Can you update us with effects positive and negative, etc. please? Purely academic interest I assure you, never really liked the mota myself, although I spent quite a few years trying to get to know it better.

Sorry to hear of your affliction.1

I used the tried and try method of cannabinoid ingestion for my chemo.

It sure was a life saver.

I had to take 4 of them to feel anything plus it took about an hour to kick in but it was very mellow, similar to edible weed like a brownie.
