Well, bummer for me. I'm going to have to stick with Zofran Going unmediated is not an option, unfortunately, unless I want to be in the hospital every week on fluids. Hyperemesis is pretty wicked. There is no other herbal remedy that works for me, I've tried them all.

I'm still curious to see studies/info/article on pot and mental illness, not just bipolar. I have seen many people on MDC advocate for this treatment and I'm curious to know more.

Indica Strains are more Sedadting and effect the body, muscles nerveds etc. Actual physical sensation. They do cause more of a hungry/Munchie feeling. So The Eating issues can be aided by this.

Mental issues Are Just That. And Need to Be investigated.
Ensure you are not holding onto any Emotional Baggage that is keeping you attatched to Medicating and Mental illness. Meditation and Prayer, Calm Breathing Techniques are So Beneficial.
These Issues Should Be Positivly Effected by Good Healthy Nutrition, Physical Activity and Hydration.
I agree that all those things can help, and I indeed do all those things, I go to therapy, I meditate, I pray, I breathe, I eat well, ect.

I have a severe case, as well as severe abuse history, difficulty tolerating stress or frustration, and I am unsure as to whether I can be treated with just those remedies. I have been hospitalized seven times, most recently in November. I have rapid cycling Bipolar I. For my family's sake as well as my own, it is unsafe for me to completely go off western medication but I am curious to know about alternative treatments and may attempt to do so far off into the future

I'd love to see any articles or links you guys have! TIA.

I cannot get pot illegally, my husband could lose his job if I were to get caught, so I'm kinda stuck there since, as you said and I suspected, no one is going to give a medical MJ card to someone who's pregnant (and I'm showing so there's no doubt).

Yeah, that does explain a lot. It's highly possible that I just was always smoking the wrong strain when I smoked pot and it made me worse. Who knows what I was smoking back then, I didn't exactly get it from a grower I knew.

I dont kn ow if this is an issue that varries from state to state - and Im sure some OBs with limted "schooling" on MJ would be skiddish but there is no law prohibiting OBs from the MMP ( medical program) in RI . Infact I have heard of it being recomened to PG women ( it was recomended to me by a MA DR so she was unable to write a scrpt for me but told me to see if a DR in my town would) So dont loose hope - if you arent using currently ( so you would test negitive) bring in the info and talk to your DR . I only recomend DR- Patient truth when you know the test will be neg incase the talk goes bad.

There are actuly TONS of scientific research studies
http://ripatients.org/medical/ptsd/
Here are some from RI MMP (RIPAC) they are specificly for PTSD but I think they can apply to any mood disorder ( which are NOT covered by the MMP except depression)

Thanks for the link!

As for my own doctor prescribing something like that, wouldn't happen. I have Kaiser. Trust me on that one! I'd have to go to a different doctor and pay out of pocket to get MJ prescribed.

The only local medical MJ place here does not treat pregnant women (which I find ironic since MJ can be very effective for hyperemesis and is as safe or safer in general as other anti emetics...). I cannot seem to find any other local listings. There are a few 2.5+ hours away, I guess I could try them too.

I also find it frustrating so many people are very pro MJ but are unwilling to link you to articles, info, or other forums on it. Google is only so helpful.

ETA: I see there are some links on the first page The first two don't work, FYI.

I know what you mean, and it is frustrating, but Im guilty of it myself. I only have so much bookmarked and I feel like while I know a lot about MJ for myself I dont feel expert enough to preach it to others, and I dont have a brain bibliography for what I know to be true.

Im just now after 5 years of research and a 14 mo formal course as well as an apprenticeship feeling like I know enough about homebirth to "preach it" I absolutely do not have as much research time invested in MJ. I wish I had more to share with you.

I'd be really carefull with mj right now if I were you. I do not personally feel comfortable mixing drugs with mj. If zofran was all you were on and you wanted to try something different, Id say go for it! but As far as MJ and mental illness I think you have a good grip on your illness in order to be able to come off drugs and give mj a try. you need to be very aware of the changes and pros and cons. I can only compare it to using yourself as an experiment and document everything. But if your ADL's are going to be so severely impaired by your "journey to a new you" then it is absolutely not worth it. Only you can know if you have a good enough grip to hold it together while you make a transition and decide if its for you.

I am most thankful for the transition I made years ago.

subbing, brb =)
final exams week
miss you guys
nice work, ~kitnkaboodle~!
welcome, new friends...

I began to medicate myself for anxiety & depression with mj b/c prescription meds were a very poor fit for me(prozac),therefore it was not a difficult transition for me at all. I had always enjoyed recreational use, but as I got older and learned more about it, it was just a natural thing for me. I began to realize how much of a waste it was to just use for fun, and how much more meaning it has to my life. It helps me to be successful mother, student, wife, and friend.

So much for just subbing this thread
Gotta go hit the books =P

Zofran causes wicked constipation. I'm sure there might be other side effects but they're probably less common. I've never had any other side effect besides that.

So I am sitting here at 1 am because my son has the flu and a fever and he won't sleep unless I am holding him. I'm wondering how I can naturally take down his fever because I don't want to use tylenol. Any ideas ladies?

Hey! I hope your LO feels better soon.
One thing I like to do is put a cold wet washcloth on the *back of their neck.* Keep doing it as needed.
That really seems to lower the temp.

Nights are the worst for fevers, if you can make it thru the night, you're good to go.

Thanks mountaingirl I will be sure to try it. I've also been told to sleep naked next to him so his body can regulate its temperature naturally and because skin to skin contact is really good too in helping to heal a baby's yucky days.

Cool, I agree about that. Keep him near you and try to get some sleep off and on if he is willing. Keep a cold washcloth near you guys and place it behind his neck while you snuggle or something. Good vibes your way! We've been there too!
