  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Decreased appetite)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: Aside from taking Marinol 5mg. rounded tablets for decreased appetite as needed, they were not only effective for a noticeable increase in my appetite, the unexpected benefit was a more motivated mood and feeling of well-being as Marinol corresponded with the prescribed (Psychiatrists) Sertraline 100mg. Tablets for anxiety taken 1 time daily, in the Morning along with 100mg. Capsules of Doxepin of which side effect was to induce sleepiness due to insomnia, taken at bedtime, in conjunction with the lasting feeling of well-being from the doasage of Marinol also taken prior to Dinner. I (suggestively) reccomend anyone experiencing PTSD, Decreased Appetite and/or Depression, Anxiety to consult with their Doctor as a possible candidate or the use of Marinol or Medical Marijuana. Marinol, furthermore is extracted from the Marijuana Plant and contains the similar level needed as prescribed and contains THC, the ingredient found in Marijuana of which produces the same result.
