    Instead of bits'n'bobs in passing, a separate diary-like thread, like @JamieMarc's guaifenesin one. (Meandering off here is no problem for me.) LD N has surprised me by being the one thing that's made the most sustainable improvement to my conditions. After and besides 100s of others that I...

    Low Dose Naltrexone to decrease pain

    Hi- I am a new member to this forum support group. I have been taking Low Dose Naltrexone for my FMS pain for almost 2 years. LDN is a trace amount (4.5 mg. or less) of Naltrexone. It's an old drug and therefore no drug companies are pushing doctors to prescribe it. I had found out about it...

    Has anyone tried LDN

    My pain specialist has recommended low dose naltrexone (LDN). In high doses (50mg+) it is used to treat addicts, but in low doses (3-4 mg) taken once at night it has been said to significantly help the pain, energy levels and mood caused by fibro and some other diseases. It's very cheap...
