Applications of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)


low dose naltrexone

Low dose naltrexone (LDN) is an FDA-approved medication with the potential to improve symptoms of a wide range of health conditions. LDN has been used since the 1980s to treat opioid and alcohol addiction, and in doses of 5-10% of the normal dose of naltrexone, LDN has been found to be effective in treating various autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, depression, fibromyalgia, and more. With its low dose, LDN is a safe and potentially effective treatment option for many people. Studies have shown up to 60% of patients experience reduced pain, fatigue, stress and headaches. LDN is typically taken in capsule form once a day at bedtime and can be taken in doses ranging from 1.5 mg to 4.5 mg. Patients often take a few weeks up to even a couple of months before seeing improvements when taking LDN; during the early stages of taking the medication, the dosage will often increase gradually. This prescription is usually well tolerated by patients however some do report vivid dreams after beginning the prescription. They typically are able to adjust to this the longer they take the prescription. Some people actually experience a “gut” detox as the LDN really can improve your immune system. Other variety of symptoms that can occur in patients are flushing after a dose increase, nausea, difficulty sleeping, skin rash, general fatigue. These symptoms typically resolve with little time. LDN can be a great treatment option for those looking to reduce inflammation without the side effects of other medications.
