    Advice on medication

    Hi wondering if anyone can help please? Has anyone been prescribed Sativex or nabilone for symptoms of MS without a diagnosis? I take morphine and it no longer seems effective Plus GP wants me off it, I donít want pain patches again and the above meds are too expensive privately. I have spasticity muscle spasms etc particularly in my legs I also have Ehlers Danlos syndrome & epilepsy, these meds would mean I donít have to take up to 20 tablets a day but thatís if I can get them here in the UK. Scotland ana Wales have no problems they seem with prescribing them.
    Thank you in advance

    Welcome. I do not do meds. As you have other issues concurrent to your MS or should you have MS, those should be treated first. There are no meds to cure MS. Most meds have little success and low efficacy. I would encourage you to inquire with the Royal MS Society there in the UK.

    Some MSers might do well initially, but long term, the meds become useless.
