Dronabinol

We Do Recover

Dronabinol, an FDA-approved synthetic THC, aids in addiction recovery by managing withdrawal symptoms such as nausea and appetite loss, especially during detox phases. Unlike marijuana, dronabinol is a regulated medication requiring medical supervision for dosage adjustments and monitoring. It’s classified as a controlled substance to ensure legal and proper use.

Administered orally in capsule or liquid form, dronabinol’s dosage varies based on its use, either for chemotherapy-induced nausea or as an appetite stimulant. Patients should strictly follow their doctor’s instructions, starting with a low dose and adjusting as necessary to avoid side effects or dependence. Abrupt cessation can lead to withdrawal symptoms.

Patients must inform their doctors about any allergies, current medications, and substance use history to avoid adverse reactions. Dronabinol may cause drowsiness and impair mental functions, so activities requiring alertness should be avoided. Alcohol can exacerbate side effects, and the medication may interact with numerous drugs, requiring careful management by healthcare professionals.

Dronabinol also shows promise in treating chronic pain, cannabis addiction, and sleep apnea, with ongoing research into its efficacy. Overdose symptoms range from mild drowsiness to severe lethargy and coordination loss. Initially a Schedule I drug, dronabinol’s reclassification to Schedule III reflects its lower abuse potential and medical value, contrasting with the stricter controls on cannabis. Despite similarities, dronabinol differs significantly from medical cannabis in effects, onset time, and regulatory status, emphasizing its role in specific therapeutic contexts.
