Hi everyone, some might have read my original message a while ago saying that my GP would fund me getting Sativex, so it went to my neuro dept here in Huddersfield, but they can’t do it, so they have referred me to Sheffield Hallamshire hospital, I’ve received my appt for the 28th December, so finger crossed I may be in with a chance, this is the furthest I’ve ever got with this, so thanks to my GP.
good luck. i have had to take a break i took it 3 weeks made me sick and dizzy, then i lost my precious dog of 16 years and this has just thrown my MS into a downward spiral. also they have found more health problems.
I did find the taste and smell and the phaff with storage in the fridge hard work though.
Oh firstly very sorry about your dog we have a dog, she’s 8 and I dread the day she goes. With the Sativex that’s exactly what I don’t want.
I am so sorry you have lost your dog. I lost my 21 year old cat last Christmas and six weeks ago my elderly cavalier. Animals are so much part of the family and the house is so empty without them.
Sadly this week my daughter has been diagnosed with MS feeling so upset.
It just got approved for use in Scotland last week!!. I got straight on the phone to my GP and got it approved and picked up yesterday! He is a legend.
I hope it does the same as the THC/CBD oils I get from the Sapphire clinic as they definitely work but £150 a month was starting to bite!
Well that’s great news Dave, yes I dare say at a 150 a shot it gets pretty expensive, can I ask why you’ve been given Sativex, is it for stiffness and spasms, or pain ?
thanks in advance Jean
Stiffness and spasms. My GP is an absolute diamond and had been trying to get it for me pre-Scotland approval literally only a couple of months ago.
He said it costs £300 a prescription!!
Thanks for your reply Dave, yes I do get stiffness and spasms, but a awful lot of pain, I dare not think I’ll get it. Like you my GP is a diamond, if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have got this far and for that I’m very grateful, whether I get it of not. Good luck with it Dave, I really hope it makes a difference.
