Bipolar - fact or fiction?
#23
As a Canuk I can say it's pretty rare and I am 99% sure it wouldn't be given for BPD; it's usually written for cancer patients for its appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and/or antiemetic properties, from what I understand. Much more common are synthetic canniboids like Cesamet or straight cannaboids like Sativex, but they are both very expensive and are legally very restricted narcotics in Canada. I remember learning in high school that marijuana can bring out schiziophrenic episodes in people that are prone, no? I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a doctor willing to write a script for marijuana for somebody with a mental illness. But I would discuss it with a doctor anyway, honesty is the best policy in finding the best treatment for you, and maybe that'll give him or her an idea of what you think your ideal functioning condition would be.
You mention before feeling like a zombie on quetiapine and lithium, you didn't feel at all like a zombie on marijuana?
