Canaduh, er, Canada has green lighted a new MS drug derived from cannabis. The painkiller, Sativex, will be available by prescription only. Sorry guys, you'll have to stay sober long enough to figure out how to score the 'scripts.
Sativex is administered through a spray pump under the tongue or on the inside of the cheek, providing reliable, self-administered pain relief, according to the companies. The spray formulation allows for more flexible dosing than an oral tablet, well suited to the variable nature of neuropathic pain experienced by people with MS.
