For many the side effects of using prescription medication can be debilitating and in some cases, may even be worse than the disease being treated. When many of these medications are stopped (especially opiate narcotics, like oxycodone, codeine or morphine) some patients are forced to deal with the side effects of withdrawal./nThe symptoms of withdrawal may include anxiety, muscle spasticity, difficulty breathing, tremors, nausea and a decrease in appetite. For centuries, these symptoms have been successfully treated by using cannabis while offering aide and relief to the underlying cause for the medication. Cannabis has been proven to be non-toxic and is known to not adversely interact with any other medication./nIn 2000, Health Canada approved the Medicinal use of Cannabis for a wide range of conditions to improve the lives of Canadians./nSide effects of Cannabis may include increased appetite, dry mouth, euphoria, or drowsiness. As with any medication, care must be taken when initially treating conditions with Cannabis until the proper dose is established./nCannabis may not be for everybody, but it may be a healthy answer for you.
