Aug 25, 2018 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

I used Zofran with good results for 10yrs, which included use of Phenergan. My condition is gastroparesis. Finally, the nausea was so severe that I just didn't get off the couch. I would ask if there was anything else for nausea treatment and I was told no. I did some internet research and started coming across articles talking about the use of Marinol which has been around since the 80s (synthetic THC). I asked my gastro if I could try it and even though I'm still dealing with nausea it has given me the ability to get up again.

Since you believe yours was caused by Narcotics did you stop the pain meds and if so how long ago did you stop?

I have gastroparesis not caused from diabetes. I also have lower extremity neuropathy. If anyone like myself is having chronic nausea with no relief go look up (Marinol.) It is synthetic THC and it works very well. I has a little "pot like" buzz the first time i took it and thankfully that went away. It was originally used on nausea caused from chemotherapy.

I am 52 and have idiopathic gastroparesis. It was confirmed with gastric emptying test in 2015. I don’t vomit, but the nausea is moderate to severe. Zofran, nor phenergan was helping anymore. I was put on marinol and i now have relief from the nausea. Finally, but marinol takes some getting use to as it is synthetic Thc. It gives you a (high) feeling, but your body adjust to it. I use either protonix, NEXIUM, or dexillant for my reflux and the occasional zantac 300mg if breakthrough reflux occurs

Jan 30, 2018 · mild gastroparesis with severe symptoms! in Digestive Health

Yes I am 52 years old and had to leave work a year ago. I have mild gastroparesis with severe unrelenting nausea and pain. I just started Marinol, but my gastroenterologist hadn’t really used the drug , but wrote 2.5 mg twice a day. Not enough. 5mg gets rid of nausea, but I still have this unwell feeling in my stomach. I have had a hiatal hernia with reflux since I was 22, but I’ve done well with PPi. I started developing nausea around 2007 plus I was developing lower extremity neuropathy. Zofran worked good for several years, but no longer effective . The first of December I went into a severe nauseated state that doesn’t let up. I do NOT vomit. I can’t live like this . I was to afraid of Reglan
