    i had severe chronic back pain that vicodin couldn't help.the pain was so severe it caused nausea that ,again, nothing helped.after pleading with my dr, he finally wrote a rx for me. it was the first time i had any relief in five + years.unfortunately, my insurance didn't cover it so the pain has returned. i think marinol should be easier to get through insurance.

The pain meds work, however the side effects make it very difficult to concentrate or focus...a 'scattered-buzzed' feeling.

    It worked very well and fast for weight loss due to loss of appetite and extremely bad nausea and vomiting from idiopathic chronic pancreatitis where all other meds had failed. I didn't like the side-effects of short-term memory issues and feeling 'altered.' It was worth it when it got bad enough and worked very well and fast when used, despite the disliked side effect of using it. I ... Show Full Comment
