Savella Medical Marijuana

Hey all, i was wondering if anyone new of any interactions between the two. I just started on Savella a few days ago, and it makes me kinda sleepy, but is really helping a heck of a lot. I was wondering if i can use my medical cannabis.
Thanks!

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

Lucky you, I wish I could get medical marijuana, it is the only thing that gets rid of the pain. I am hoping my doctor will listen better to me next visit. Good luck, I cannot answer your question but wanted to comment.

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

I can not answer your question, but all I have to say is that I tried medical marijuana once and I had a TERRIBLE reaction! Instead of feeling relief, my pain level skyrocketed! Every inch of my body crawled with pain. I couldn't be touched and I was completely hypersensitive and miserable. I feel like a freak of nature. I really do. NOTHING works for me!!!
I have heard only positive feedback about medical marijuana, and this was such a disappointment. Has this happened to any of you?

The ONLY explanation I can think of is that my dose was too high.

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

I too wish I lived in a state that allowed medicinal marijuana. It works wonders with lessening the pain. And surprisingly for me, gives me some energy. Maybe because the pain is so much less.

I believe there is some research to suggest that it works on the glial cells, which dump chemicals in us that cause fatigue and tiredness

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

Why do you guys think I had that reaction? I only tried it once, and never again. Could it be that because it was my first time having it in my body?

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

I can't smoke, (sounds fake, but grass allergies kill me .. lol) .. For those not living in a legal state they may try looking into K2 .. Head shops say it is for insense (spelling), but my wife who has done both say the effects are the same, but the K2 lasts ALOT longer .. It costs like $35 for 3 grams (I think that is what the pkg said) .. The benefits .. It's legal and can't get in trouble at work .. lol .. MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY THESE STATEMENTS .. : o )

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

Chicabella, I know there are different strains of mj, and some have other things added in. But those would be street mj, not something from a dispensary I believe. I have had horrible experiences with mj that has had some nasty stuff added to it. I make sure I get commercial stuff from a reputable source. I was terrified at first to try it. But after 1 toke, my pain was gone. It doesn't even really make me high, I get a good, relaxed feeling and just let my whole body relax. So sorry you are missing out on such an awesome, natural pain reliever.

Sandra

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

Oxycodone just barely helps my muscular pain. Medicinal marijuana works so well that I can feel the location where the pain was, but it doesn't hurt. It only takes a little bit and all of pain is gone. I don't want to hurt my lungs, so I am going to try to cook some in butter and then make brownies or cookies.

Re: Savella Medical Marijuana

I know that eating Marijuana feels a lot different than smoking it. Make sure you only eat a tiny bit at first. It freaked me out, nothing like smoking it. It may not help with pain when you eat it??? I have not tried MJ for pain yet. Been a lot of years since I did MJ before this Fibro hell took over. Getting ready to try it again though.
