This is Dr. David
what other medications is he taking?
CBD is Cannabidiol oil which has THC and is extracted for marijuana.
this oil is not well studied with conventional medications and interactions can be hard to predict.
cannabidiol oil can help reduce nausea and help improve appetite and help decrease mild pain.
I would talk to his GPD doctor about the oil
some doctors can be very old fashion and not allow their patients to take alternative therapy
so the response from his doctor can be unknown.
but it is always best to try at least to talk to his doctor first, the one who is prescribing him his medications.
