– 2 months on medical cannabis
– PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety, sleeping problems
– Previously treated with antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, antipsychotic medication

The side effects for taking pill medication are as follow. [antidepressants]: nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, or stomach ache. Constipation or diarrhea. Loss of interest in sex (erectile dysfunction in men). [anti-anxiety medication]: sleep problems (insomnia), memory problems, poor balance or coordination. Slurred speech. [antipsychotic medication]: dry mouth, sore throat, stomach pain, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, constipation. Which all equals no life. With medical marijuana I do not have any of these side effects. I can have a life full of activities. I sleep better with no nightmares. It helps with my PTSD and anxiety.
