Pcos Treated With Medical Marijuana
Pretty Broad ?: There are a lot of potential conditions that you are referring to, and the sense that perhaps you are thinking of one condition in particular. How about asking about just that one and perhaps people will be more comfortable answering. ...Read more
Pcos is a metabolic disorder affecting 8-10% of women that may cause irregular periods, acne or increased hair growth, infertility or subfertility, and increases the risk of diabetes. To diagnose pcos, we need 2 out of 3 of: 1. Irregular or no periods 2. Acne, hair growth and/or blood tests showing too much male-type hormones (androgens) 3. Ultrasound showing large ovaries ...Read more
So far the data is: Too limited to say anything with confidence on that subject. This is my understanding. We are simply too early in the process of studying this to know that this is beneficial and that the benefits outweigh the risks. There are promising studies in cell culture and animal models, but neither of those are proof of any specific activity in Humans that compares to the cell culture and animal research ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will Medical Marijuana CBD strain with no THC help for anxiety/depression caused by lymphoma and chemotherapy treatment? No luck with ssri and benzos
It could : Dear Cesar: yes, CBD could help with anxiety although THC could also help with mild depressive symptoms. There are no clear guidelines here and you will have to try different mixes. There is a brand called care by design (CBD) that makes sprays with different percentages of CBD/THC. I usually recommend my patients to try both CBD and THC and see what works for them. All the best, Ariel. ...Read more
Lacks medical evidnc: No universally accepted medical evidence that either IIH or PTC responds to medical marijuana. I'm not sure whether you are using PTC to mean POST TRAUMATIC CONCUSSION or referring to the endocrinological disorder known as MENS Type 2 (multiple endocrine neoplasia). In either case evidence is only anecdotal that marijuana works at any level. Questions? Write to me at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How effective is medical marijuana as a glaucoma treatment? I'm curious if medical marijuana can reduce intraocular pressure. Some of the drugs my doctor has prescribed for my glaucoma haven't worked that well. Is medical marijuana a good glaucoma treatme
No: It is the active ingredient of marijuana, thc, that lowers the pressure in the eye. In order for a glaucoma medication to be effective, it must lower the pressure all of the time. So for marijuana to be effective, you would have to high all of the time, even when asleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diet, Exercise, Meds: Many women with pcos gain weight or find it hard to lose. Moderately low carb diets (south beach, weight watchers), complex carbs instead of simple: brown rice, whole wheat bread/pasta, less sugars, more protein, can help, as well as portion control. Exercise - do weights and cardio at least 3 x a week: weights increase muscle mass, burns more calories. Some lose weight on metformin treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does anyone have experience treating bipolar dz with cannabis? For a patient dong well is there any known risk of this treatment course?
No experience: But, this seems like a very bad idea, given the strong relationship between bipolar disorder, substance abuse and addictive disease. As a psychiatrist, I'd use more conventional medical treatment modalities, for safety reasons, and in the patient's best interests. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
Not the answer: Research is lacking, but though marijuana can ameliorate anxiety, it cannot do so in a way that renders patients functional. The goal of treatment of anxiety (or any psych disorder) is to alleviate distress of the symptom(s) and restore the patient to previous level of functioning. Marijuana is too impairing to functioning to be a viable treatment option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have gr 2 hyper retinopathy& i'm alsomedicated for ocd. Is OCD combined with a high demand job likely to cause higher BP & complicate health issues?
shingles pain: Marijuana is now legal for patient use in at least 20 states nationally, if you meet the individual states diagnostic criteria to use cannibus as a medication. I do not believe that cannibus usage would alter the clinical course of a shingles outbreak, but I am experienced in stating that marijuana would help with the pain usually associated with shingles, which can be protracted in duration. ...Read more
Is medical marijuana useful to calm PTSD or anxiety in patients with seizure disorder who can't be on typical anxiety medications?
Can't say: Unfortunately, very little reliable, peer reviewed research has been done regarding the safety and efficacy of marijuana for anything, despite the long list list of conditions for which it has allegedly been helpful. My own guess it that it is not likely to be helpful, since it clouds thinking, and is difficult to dose properly, resulting in an under or overdose. Stick with more proven therapies ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Medical marijuana: Medical marijuana does nothing to help macular edema. Historically, people have thought that they could treat glaucoma (elevated intraocular pressures) with marijuana, but this is not the case. The iop lowering effects of this drug are very short lived and so currently this is not an accepted mode of treatment for this condition. ...Read more
