|Subject: ||RE: Help my girlfriend solve medical mystery|
It's LOW DOSE naltrexone, which has a completely different effect. It blocks the opiate receptors for an optimal amount of time so that endorphins naturally increase in the body and brain, which can help with immunomodulation, pain, energy, and sleep in my case (though it tends to cause insomnia at first so one has to go slow). It's been used with a wide degree of success in illnesses ranging from MS to cancer to fibromyalgia to AIDS to Crohn's. 4.5 mg is the maximum optimal dose, but it depends on weight, compounder, etc. For many, that is too much. But even at 4.5 mg, it's extremely benign. I don't like drugs. I don't take them unless I absolutely have too. LDN gives me very vivid dreams, and I hope to wean other meds with it as others have been able to.
Lots of good info here:
