Overview - Muscular Dystrophy & Myotonic Disorders

Description of Muscular Dystrophy & Myotonic Disorders

Muscular dystrophy (MD) describes a number of chronic progressive diseases that affect the muscles causing loss of muscle mass and gradual loss of function. MD is affected by the mutations of genes involved in the production of the protein dystrophin, which plays a critical role in the formation of healthy muscle tissues. Different types of MD are determined by the specific gene that has mutated and common characterizations include a chronic degenerative pathology, increasing weakness, and loss of muscle mass. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common form and typically begins in childhood and affects primarily males. In contrast, myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD) is the most common form of adult-onset MD. Orthodox medicine offers no cure.

Disease Classification

Condition: Muscular Dystrophy
Disease Family:
Organ System: Muscular System
ICD-10 Chapter: Diseases of the nervous system
ICD-10 Code: G71

Muscular Dystrophy & Myotonic Disorders Symptoms:

Generalized weakness, ataxia (unsteady gait), muscular pains, or some cognitive deficits for example

Also known as:

Duchenne’s Muscle Dystrophy (DMD), Becker muscular dystrophy, Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy

Drug Interactions

THC Interaction with Pharmaceutical Drugs

  • THC can enhance the effects of drugs that cause sedation and depress the central nervous system, such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and alcohol, for example. 
  • THC is metabolized by and an inhibitor of a number of enzymatic liver pathways referred to as cytochrome P450. There are more than 50 enzymes belonging to this enzyme family, a number of which are responsible for the breakdown of common drugs such as antidepressants (e.g. amitriptyline, doxepine, fluvoxamine), antipsychotics (haloperidol, clozapine, stelazine), or beta-blockers (propranolol, theophylline, warfarin).  Thus patients taking these classes of medication may find that THC increases the concentration and effects of these drugs as well as the duration of their effects.
  • Clinical observation suggests no likely interactions with other pharmaceuticals at a total daily dose of up to 20mg THC.

CBD Interaction with Pharmaceutical Drugs

  • CBD may alter action on metabolic enzymes (certain drug-transport mechanisms), and as such may alter interactions with other drugs, some of which may produce therapeutic or adverse effects. For instance, CBD interacts with the enzyme cytochrome P450 3A4 and cytochrome P450 2C19, increasing the bioavailability of anti-epileptic drugs such as clobazam (a benzodiazepine). This makes it possible to achieve the same results at significantly lower dosages, reducing treatment costs and risks of adverse effects. 
  • Groups of drugs affected include: anti-epileptic drugs, psychiatric drugs, and drugs affecting metabolic enzymes, for example.
  • Clinical observations suggest no likely interactions with other pharmaceuticals at a total daily dose of up to 100mg CBD

Dosing Considerations

THC Dosage Considerations

  • THC micro dose:  0.1 mg to 0.4 mg (0.001mg/kg to 0.005mg/kg)
  • THC low dose:  0.5 mg to 5 mg (0.006mg/kg to 0.06mg/kg)
  • THC medium dose:  6 mg to 20 mg (0.08mg/kg to 0.27mg/kg)
  • THC high dose:  21 mg to 50+ mg (0.28mg/kg to 0.67mg/kg)
Formula for converting a set dose into mg/kg considerations: mg ÷ kg = mg/kg
(sample conversion calculated on a person weighing 75kg)

CBD Dosage Considerations

  • CBD low dose:  0.4 mg to 19 mg (0.005mg/kg to 0.25mg/kg)
  • CBD medium dose: 20 mg to 99 mg (0.26mg/kg to 1.32mg/kg)
  • CBD high dose:  100 mg to 800+ mg (1.33mg/kg to 10.7mg/kg)
  • (upper limits tested ~1,500mg)
Formula for converting a set dose into mg/kg considerations: mg ÷ kg = mg/kg
(sample conversion calculated on a person weighing 75kg)
