Young rare disease patient enjoys the benefits of medical cannabis
AUSTIN, Texas – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Original Texas Compassionate Culture (TXOG), Texas’ leading medical cannabis supplier, celebrates the success of 4-year-old Carter Halliburton as he recognizes the benefits of TXOG’s medicine in the management of his rare neurological conditions.
Early in childhood, Carter was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a rare form of childhood epilepsy. She was also diagnosed with an incredibly rare neurological disorder, SYNGAP1 syndrome. At the time of his diagnosis, he was one of 400 people worldwide with the disease. Carter has already experienced more than 100 seizures a day, which has led her parents and doctors to try several drugs that have caused negative side effects. After working with Carter’s neurologist to balance the TXOG drug with other treatments, they noticed a difference in seizure reduction as well as improved behavior and sleep control.
Quality sleep is essential for patients with SYNGAP1 syndrome who often experience sleep abnormalities and disturbances resulting in restless nights for both patients and their caregivers. Carter’s medical cannabis allows her to sleep soundly all night long without the need for strong sleeping pills.
âThere has been a day and night difference at Carter over the past two years,â said Peter Halliburton, Carter’s father. âThe combination therapy of Carter’s anti-seizure prescriptions and TXOG’s medical cannabis has dramatically improved her daily life. We see benefits outside of better seizure control, like Carter’s ability to get a full night’s sleep. Poor sleep can be debilitating and affect the quality of life in families with SYNGAP1 syndrome. Now Carter sleeps nearly 11 hours a night and is able to fall back to sleep on his own if he wakes up. Our family is grateful for consistent sleep, and we would love to see neurologists prescribe medical cannabis like TXOG – which we trust and know to be of the highest quality – as a first-line treatment.
The Halliburtons’ journey to better seizure control has been a roller coaster, but the benefits and convenience of TXOG’s medical cannabis have allowed Carter to lead a healthier life. The family can easily access Carter’s medications in a number of ways, including through deliveries and visiting TXOG’s prescription pick-up point in nearby Dallas.
âCarter’s story is a prime example of how medical cannabis can positively impact the life of a patient living with rare syndromes,â said Morris Denton, CEO of TXOG. âOur team is constantly working to cultivate and manufacture a variety of natural and consistent medical cannabis products to meet the unique needs of patients, and we are pleased that the Halliburton family can reap the benefits of this potent plant.â
TXOG gummies, tinctures and lozenges are available for statewide delivery at www.texasoriginal.com, at their dispensary in Austin, TX, and through the company’s patient collection points in North Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
