UK Pharmaceutical Company Creates Pot Pill

Filed under: DrugsHealthMedicineCancer

If you think medical marijuana cards are crazy, prepare to go nuts!

A pharmaceutical company in the United Kingdom has created the first prescription drug from marijuana plants, which has already been approved in Canada, New Zealand, and 8 other European countries.

Sativex was developed to treat multiple sclerosis patients with symptoms including neuropathic pain, spasticity and overactive bladder, but also has the potential to treat pain caused by cancer.

If it works, it sounds great to us! However, just because other countries are using cannabis in medicine doesn't mean the FDA will allow it here (except all those pot stores we see all over El Lay).

Check out the quick video above to get the basic info and let us know if U think this medicine should be approved for usage in the United States!

"Puppy Prozac" Helps Dogs Deal With Separation Anxiety

Filed under: HealthDog

Puppy

Many dogs have to deal with separation anxiety.

This is more than whining when you leave for work. This is excessive barking, destructive chewing, pacing, drooling or more.

There is a new pill called Reconcile, a beef flavored Prozac-style compound, that is supposed to alleviate this anxiety.

The pill is

Kim Kardashian Diagnosed With Psoriasis

Filed under: Kim KardashianSkin

Kim K skin condition

If you've seen any pics of Kim Kardashian with red spots, resembling bug bites, on her skin it's because the reality star has been diagnosed with psoriasis.

While dermatologists say the skin condition is completely manageable with the help of pills, creams, or even injectable medication, it's understandable why someone like Kim — who makes a living off of her appearance — would be worried about the diagnosis.

Citing obvious media scrutiny for her every move, Kim said:

"People don't understand the pressure on me to look perfect. When I gain a pound, it's in the headlines, so imagine what the tabloids will do to me when they see all these spots."

We can't see it affecting the 30-year-old's career too much because, as it turns out, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, Kris Jenner, was diagnosed with the disease at 30 too and we've never noticed.

According to a leading dermatologist, "if managed properly, it can be kept under control and she can lead a perfectly normal life."

Kim will learn about her condition in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which airs on July 24th.

New Pill Could Prevent HIV

Filed under: HealthWellnessMedicine

new-hiv-pill-truvada-could-prevent-hiv.jpg

This is promising.

A new study reveals that an AIDS drug used to treat HIV can also be used to prevent the deadly virus among heterosexual men and women.

The study involved 4,758 heterosexual couples in Uganda and Kenya, in which one partner was HIV positive and one was negative. When taking the drug Truvada, there was a 78% reduction in HIV risk as opposed to those who were taking placebos.

There were 13 HIV infections among those on Truvada, 18 for those who took Viread (another pill to treat HIV) and 47 on the fake pills.

Dr. Lynn Paxton of the CDC said, "This is a good day for HIV prevention."

Good day, indeed! It's a huge step, but still still a small victory in the war against AIDS and HIV. Although, with a promising breakthrough such as this one, we remain hopeful.

Courtney Love Opens Up About Former Drug Usage, Assures Us She's Clean

courtney love talks drugs

Courtney Love has made it clear to the world that she does NOT like being called out for drugs when she's not on them, and now she's got even more to say on the subject:

"I've been maligned as this drug freak for years, and I'm getting tired of it. That's not the way I live anymore. I try to work a good program. I don't do smack. I don't do crack anymore."

Here's Courtney on the most recent drug habit she kicked - Adderall:

"[It was] legitimately prescribed to me by a respectable physician. But after Britney [Spears] freaked out a couple of years ago, and her toxicology report said she was taking a much lower dose than I was, I decided to get off that sh*t."

Courtney on drugs she started using thanks to Andy Dick and Winona Ryder:

"[Dick] handed me a pill right before the show and said, 'Courtney, take this, it's like Vicodin without the aspirin.' It f***ed me up bad. Winona Ryder slipped me a similar pill a few months earlier. I'm such an addict that I just swallowed them both, without asking what they were."

And here's Courtney on her lowpoint with drugs:

"Snorting blow up Pamela Anderson's ass!"

Ha! We're just glad to hear that Courtney isn't using anymore, and as far as that Pam Anderson comment is concerned, we'll assume that she's kidding! Good one, Courtney!

…You are kidding, right?

…RIGHT?

What do U think about Courtney Love's drug comments? Do U think she's completely clean?

Filed under: HealthMedicine

Hiv pill approved

A new once-a-day pill that prevents the HIV virus from reproducing was approved on on Friday by the FDA.

Edurant is is designed for use as part of a drug cocktail that reduce levels of HIV in the blood, but approved only for those who have not been treated with other medications for the virus.

Dr. Edward Cox, FDA's director of antimicrobial products, said:

"Patients may respond differently to various HIV drugs or experience varied side effects. FDA's approval of Edurant provides an additional treatment option for patients who are starting HIV therapy."

The medication sounds like an awesome advancement in the fight against AIDS! The side effects were very moderate with depression, trouble sleeping, headache and rash being the most common.
