This is a list of the current medications my son takes to simply keep his aggression and agitation somewhat under control. I have only listed the most COMMON side effects of these pharmaceuticals.
7 people a DAY die in FLORIDA ALONE from the prescription drug oxycontin. 1,000 people a year die in Florida as a direct result of alcohol. You can die from water overdose and sun exposure, but….
No one has EVER died as a direct result of marijuana intoxication. It is literally impossible, according to hundreds of studies. It has been found to be therapeutic in MANY instances, and I feel the substance is MUCH safer than Big Pharma wants you to believe; after all, what do THEY stand to gain if you could receive from a pot brownie the positive effects of even ONE of these drugs, thus eliminating the need for purchasing their PILLS that also cause:
Anxiety; constipation; cough; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; fatigue; headache; increased appetite; increased saliva production; lightheadedness; nausea; restlessness; runny nose; stomach pain or upset; trouble sleeping; vomiting; weight gain.
Blurred vision; constipation; depression; dilated pupils; disorientation; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; fast heartbeat; hallucinations; headache; heat stroke; impaired memory; increased sensitivity of eyes to light; lack of drive; lightheadedness; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; numbness of fingers; sleeplessness; stomach upset; trembling of hands; urinary retention; weak or stiff muscles.
Anxiety; decreased sexual desire or ability; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; flu-like symptoms (eg, fever, chills, muscle aches); increased sweating; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; runny nose; sore throat; stomach upset; trouble sleeping; weakness.
Constipation; decreased appetite; diarrhea; dizziness; dry mouth; headache; increased sweating; mild irritability, nervousness, or restlessness; nausea; trouble sleeping; unpleasant taste; upper stomach pain; vomiting; weight loss.
Clumsiness or unsteadiness; constipation; cough; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; headache; increased saliva production; lightheadedness; loss of appetite; muscle aches; nervousness; runny nose; tiredness.
My son cannot speak for himself. If HE had a voice I KNOW which choice he would make. I AM his voice! I will NEVER break the law, so I may NEVER even KNOW if MMJ could help my son, but until I breathe my last breath, I will fight to help him try any therapy that MAY help him live a more fulfilled life.
