Tue, Feb 4 10:28am · 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

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

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.
