You can't believe everything you're told. As for the reference when you can look up this info. If the person who is saying it can't give you a reference like a Law or regulations that is it just something they are saying with nothing to back it up.
Maybe the reason no dr you've seen will give you a MM card is because they don't believe it helps enough to be worth the risk. Many drs don't believe MM is as great as a lot of people think.View Thread
idaho, not all drs agree about Marijuana. You're not suppose to take any meds that your pain dr didn't prescribe without telling him & absolutely no illegal substances. The Pain Contract you signed stated all of this and it stated what would happen if you did the things you weren't suppose to. Just because Marijuans is legal in one state doesn't mean it is legal in another. And just because Marijuana is legal in a state doesn't mean every dr there will treat you if you test positive for it, Also Marijuana is very expensive & isn't covered by insurance.View Thread
"Definition of a Generic Drug: A drug product that is comparable to a brand/reference listed drug product in dosage form, strength, route of administration, quality and performance characteristics, and intended use." (Page 7 at link below)
Comparable doesn't not mean identical. Comparable means similiar. On page 12 at the link below "significant difference" does not mean no difference. Everyone's system is different, this may explain why generics work for some people and not for others.
Read the wording and pay close attention to words like similiar, virtually the same, close to, ect. The generics have the same active ingredients, but the rate it is absorbed in your bloodstream is not the same. For it to be the same, it would have to be identical.View Thread
dave, that episode of Bones, also showed that just because someone can use medical marijuana accoridng to their state laws does not mean that it won't adversely affect them if they have a federal job. It can also affect someone if they apply for/receive SSA disability because Federal Laws supersede State Laws, the one that is the more stringent applies.View Thread
Medical marijuana is a medication and can be abused. What safe guards are in place to ensure than a patient that is prescribed Medical Marijuana doesn't abuse it ?
Because a patient doesn't get a actual prescription that they take to the pharmacy, I wonder if the doctors see this as a way to get around the liability issues some have been faced with when prescribing pain medications where the patient becomes addicted and die of an overdose. How would a doctor monitor Medical Marijuana in patients that also receive pain medications ?View Thread
ladysilver, This has nothing to do with Zohydro ER. Zohydro ER will be a Schedule II when it hits the market soon. This has to do only with Hydrocodone Combination Medications. Medes like Norco, Lortab, Hycodan, etc.View Thread
