Laura Ann Posted January 21, 2005 Share Posted January 21, 2005 My mother is now taking Marinol to stimulate her appetite and it appears to be effective. She started on Monday at 5mg a day and was increased to 10mg Wednesday evening. While she has not starting eating huge portions of food, she now can eat small meals without getting nauseous. I am so happy about this! Mom's Oncologist said that usually one out of five patients will see improvement so I am feeling so blessed and thankful. One of my worst fears has always been that she would stop eating. A special thank you to Snowflake for her suggestion. Laura Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
