Though clinical and anecdotal evidence suggests CBD’s benefits in managing different conditions, it became most famous for treating a rare and debilitating form of pediatric epilepsy. Dravet’s Syndrome is notoriously resistant to current approved treatment methods. Sufferers are plagued by seizures, often up to hundreds a day, that worsen as they age and can be life-threatening. Currently, treatment methods include having the child wear an eyepatch, specialized diets, and brain surgery, but all have mixed success rates.
Here, the evidence is not going to make them happy. A 2017 study in JAMA reported that only 26 of 84 samples of CBD oils, tinctures and liquids purchased online contained the amount of CBD claimed on their labels. Eighteen of them contained THC, which could lead to intoxication or impairment in some individuals. And a quarter had less CBD than advertised. The F.D.A. has likewise found many products that did not contain the amount of CBD they were claiming.
Para el tratamiento de la Fibromialgia, se utilizan habitualmente antidepresivos como la Amitriptilina, Duloxetina, Fluoxetina; antiepilépticos como la Pregabalina; analgésicos como el paracetamol o los opiáceos según la intensidad del dolor. Los corticoides no se muestran muy efectivos en esta patología. También se prescriben AINES o antinflamatorios no esteroideos como ibuprofeno, naproxeno, diclofenaco sódico, etc.
