I'm sure you will have heard on the news about this controversial medicine that relieves pain has now been given the go ahead for MS sufferers.
It's a mouth spray which relieves painful spasticity of the muscles which is what MS sufferers have to endure.
It contains active ingredients called cannabinoids which are extracted from cannabis plants and grown in a controlled environment.
Apparently around 11,500 patients could be eligible for this treatment but at a cost of £11 a day it could mean that the medicine may be deemed too expensive by the NHS 'rationing' body. However, NHS funding will initially depend on primary care trusts to foot the bill prior to a full assessment by NICE.
Although MS sufferers have known the benefits of cannabis for some time but have obviously not been able to use it, they must be delighted this has been given the go ahead. But how awful for them if they are given it then have it taken away due to the cost of the drug.
