The LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) Book - If you have CFS, FM, Lyme and more

Thread starter #1
Have been doing some research on LDN.
Seems to be an Amazing medication that can have a significant positive impact on any number of autoimmune type diseases.
Chapters written by medical professional....
Chapters cover:
Pharmacology of LDN
MS and Lupus
CFS and FM
Thyroid (Hashi and Graves)
Restless Leg Syndrome
The book is an outcome of the work that the founder of a non-profit organization in England that has taken up the cause to educate the medical field, along with patients, on this amazing medication.
Relatively safe with minor sides.
And more...
Look here for additional information:
If you, or someone you know, is suffering from an autoimmune type illness, and you have not heard of LDN, then dig in and read.
While not garmented to be a cure all, there is enough anecdotal reports on its success at various levels to be worth looking at...
I really appreciate you bringing this to the forum. I have a consult with my PCP to talk about it. He very open to prescribing it and has in the past. If I get it I will start a thread on my experience. Hoping to get sublingual drops
50mg generic Naltrexaone is now available.I heard that this drug is used for Opioid addiction and alcohol addiction.But I did not know that this drug is used for so many other medical conditions. :cool:

Most DRs have NO clue.
Uses here are off label and that scares a lot of DRs.
It has been approved for use as a diet aid along with another drug.

If anyone has any of the conditions where LDN has shown a positive impact, it is a "No Brainer" to give it a try.
Issue is finding a DR that will write a script.
You can always "off shore" it and DIY.
Standard tab of Naltrexone is 50mg.
LOW dose means 5mg or less per day.
There are annual conferences with researchers and DRs that use if, attending from all over the globe.
Not bunch of crazies wearing tin foil hats, but prominent researchers and DRs.
Biggest issue is that this drug has gone generic and there is NO incentive for drug companies to pursue the research needed to get it approved for other uses.

From my reading there are 3 common outcomes:
1. It works and you notice the improvements right away.
2. You don't think it works and you stop, and then you can tell that it was having a positive impact after you stop.
3. No positive impact at all.
It is not for everyone, but for those folks that it helps it can be life saver, and it is inexpensive.
