    Hello,
    I've been diagnosed with depression, GAD, and bi-polar about a year and a half ago. I hate the medication i'm given it doesn't really help and the side effects suck balls. I'm 18 and am prescribed paxil, lamictal, and ativan (for sleep).

    i think i qualify but i want reassurance :). Also I heard it's good to bring in medical records, but how do you get them?

    thanks
     
  2. paxil and marijuana have a horrible track record and that could actually effect your chances highly. Your willingness to switch to a different brand might change that, or dropping that kind of drug all together.. pot will do what it does 1000% better imho.
     
  3. call your doctor, all of your medical files should be available to you and you should be able to get a copy.
     
  4. Take your pill bottles with you! The newer the better. Just ask your doctor for a copy of your records- they are YOUR records! Mine arrived in the mail in about 2 weeks.

    And your regular doctor CAN give you a rec (but likely won't :( ). All he needs to do is write- "Today's date. I recommend that _____ use cannabis for his medical condition. He needs YY ounces per month and may grow ZZ plants to supply it. Dr. XXXXX " The last bit about "how much" is IMPORTANT because of the changing MMJ laws. That is ALL a doctor needs to do, but they are too scared of the feds and the AMA.
