First a little background.
1. The medical abbreviation “TID”, means three times daily.
2. This is a patient with autism whose mother has been in communication with me. I am finding, as you will see, that the usual medical “norms” with dosing and administration are now becoming an integral part of the Medical Cannabis Practice at GreenBridge Medical. It makes me feel comfortable and happy.
3. So, here is a letter from a patient:
We wanted to send you another update on our son (22 years old, severe autism spectrum disorder) on the 16:1 Extract.
Just to remind you, he was getting worse on the 8:1, so we changed to the #16:1. We’ve taken it slowly, starting in mid-March at .5 ml TID. After two weeks, we raised it to .75 ml TID and he had a terrible tantrum, so we pulled back to .5 ml TID again for three weeks. We raised back to .75 ml TID on April 18 and pretty much immediately saw an increase in language, which we are continuing to see!!!
We’ve also noted his mood has been slightly better (although he’s had a couple of bad days/tantrums). The OCD continues at a high level, along with “seizure-like” movements. (A neurologist had once told us these movements were behaviors, not seizures, but we still aren’t sure about that.)
So yesterday we increased the dose to 1 ml TID. So far so good. We will keep you updated.
