    Marinol (dronabinol) is not the same as medical marijuana. Marinol is FDA approved for anorexia associated with weight loss from HIV and for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. It is a federally controlled schedule III drug (marijuana is a schedule I drug meaning it is illegal under federal law). Like other prescription drugs is may be prescribed off-label meaning a doctor can prescribe it for a condition or at a dose it is not FDA approved for. So yes your doctor can legally prescribe the medication to you, regardless of your age or state. HOWEVER most doctors would not likely prescribe it to you, especially without trying more conventional medications. Even when it is used for an approved condition it is typically only prescribed if other treatments fail. Also because of your age and the fact you have depression and other psychiatric problems using Marinol is not typically recommended. If Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) causes you a lot of nausea then talk to your doctor about switching medication to something like Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine), Adderall (mixed amphetamine salts), Concerta (methylphenidate) or Desoxyn (methamphetamine). If you can find a drug that does not cause as much nausea you may not need to add extra medication to treat side effects. Vyvanse is also one of the longest acting stimulants meaning it has a higher likely hood of causing insomnia. Something like Dexedrine or even the extended-release form (Dexedrine Spansules) might be better because it will wear off a bit sooner. And drugs like Atarax (hydroxyzine) or Phenergan (promethazine) are commonly used for nausea- they can also help with sleep and anxiety. Anxiolytics like Ativan (lorazepam) are very effective for treating anxiety and they can reduce nausea and help with insomnia.
