Some of my medications had to be increased in doses as time went on.
Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant drug that is used for a wide variety of applications, such as neuropathy.
When I first started the medication, my doses were only 100mg each. Now they’re 1,200mg for every single dose, something that took a few years to reach. The doctor is not allowed to raise it anymore, but needless to say it was a necessary evil to get the amount up to this degree. A smaller dose of gabapentin wasn’t working the same way as my new dose. Unfortunately there is misinformation over gabapentin prescription use, and some people have moved to calling it a narcotic which seems insane to me. The drug has sedating properties, but it’s no opiate or benzodiazepine. Cannabis has its own slew of qualitative effects in each user, even though I wouldn’t compare it to a narcotic opiate-like drug, or akin to a downer love xanax. However, just like with gabapentin, our doses of THC had to increase as I became changingly used to higher amounts of the drug. My medical marijuana doctor told me that it’s normal for someone to develop a slight tolerance for the drug and need higher amounts of THC to reach the same therapeutic effects. She simply increased my medical marijuana allotment when I asked him to, so I can use more of the plant without worrying that I’m not getting therapeutic effects any longer. I feel harshly grateful to have a medical marijuana physician that is understanding of my needs as a medical marijuana patient.
