Advil May Decrease Marijuana Memory Loss

Marijuana Memory Loss Prevented with Painkillers

Too stoned to remember why you walked into the kitchen? Try popping an Advil.

A new study suggests that over-the-counter painkillers like Ibuprofen prevents learning problems and memory loss stemming from marijuana use.

In a study of mice, researchers found that THC increased levels of an enzyme called cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which turns down memory-making abilities in brain cells. OTC painkillers work by deactivating COX-2, which could help you keep clear-headed while hazy at the same time.

And by the way, you were going for a glass of orange juice.
