Marijuana use while on OxyCotin and Fentanyl
My father has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma just before Memorial Day.
He had six weeks of chemotherapy and the results were extrememly positive. Unfortunatly four weeks after the final round the results of his final PET scan came back with the worst results possible. All the cancer has returned and is worse than it was before. He has a month, maybe two to live.
We want him to be as comfortable as possible in these last remaining weeks.
He is now on multiple medications for pain and his appetite is basically nonexistent.
After talking with many friends and family with similar circumstances I am trying to suggest for him to smoke marijuana. All the stories have heard so far have been positive. Much pain reduction and a big increase in appetite.
Our concern is interactions of smoking marijuana combined with the OxyCotin and Fentanyl that is currently in his system.
I've tried to research as much as i can but the information I've gathered is mixed.
So my basic question is would it be safe to smoke marijuana while taking prescription OxyCotin and having a Fentanyl patch at the same time?
I have found a vapor form for him to use. Oil form. Very similar to how an e-ciggarette would work.
Any feedback would be extremely useful. If we can relieve his back pain and get his appetite back, I think he will feel much better. It's not a cure but would hopefully help for the time being.
Thank you in advance.
