Hi Sheep, yes, I’m on Nabilone via Neuro Rehab as apparently I’m not ready for Sativex yet (possibly due to cost but could be mobility?). It is a bit of a nuisance as it’s off-licence in England so my surgery won’t touch and I have to request the prescription from the hospital and collect from the hospital pharmacy, oh and my husband says he has to fill out a form each time because it’s a “controlled” substance. - so if you can get the consultant to put it on repeat, you’ll be miles ahead of me! It does what it’s supposed to but I have to admit to uncontrollable giggles etc. for the first couple of days BUT I got used to it very quickly. Is yours for spasticity too? I’m seeing my doctor in a few weeks so I guess I’ve been on it for about 5 months. Good luck - Sonia x
