I am trying to find out how long it takes your system to get use to the drug Cesamet. I am unable to wake up. I want to stick to it. I know no one who has taken it at all. Can anyone tell me when I will adjust to the medication Is 21 days too early for that
Hello Denisecarman, & welcome to the site. You did not say why you are taking cesamet so the info I have may not appy to you. This is for how to dose:
Cesamet Dosage and Administration
The usual adult dosage is 1 or 2 mg 2 times a day. On the day of chemotherapy, the initial dose should be given 1 to 3 hours before the chemotherapeutic agent is administered. To minimize side effects, it is recommended that the lower starting dose be used and that the dose be increased as necessary. A dose of 1 or 2 mg the night before may be useful. The maximum recommended daily dose is 6 mg given in divided doses 3 times a day.
Cesamet may be administered 2 or 3 times a day during the entire course of each cycle of chemotherapy and, if needed, for 48 hours after the last dose of each cycle of chemotherapy.
Of course this is for cancer patients that are receiving chemotherapy. I don't know if you are a cancer patient or chonic pain patinet, but I believe you will have to give this time for you to adjust. I am giving you a link below in blue to read everything you can about side effects of cesamet, & also at the end will be other links that you can also read to find what you are looking for. Maybe someone will see this answer that actually takes this med, & be able to help you better. I hope by now you are doing much better. Wishing you the best...
