The drug in the US is called Cesamet and is currently approved for nausea associated with chemotherapy and anorexia related to AIDS. However, there have been studies finding good results in fibromyalgia and MS and other disorders where narcotic pain medications have questionable effect. It is being studied for the effects on spasticity and neuropathic pain syndromes.
Physicians will be hesitant to prescribe this except in research situations or extreme cases. You may see this used in a pain management center.
