Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Multiple Sclerosis

by | Feb 4, 2010 | Medication | 0 comments

There is old medication that has taken on a new role in the past few years that offers a great deal of hope for those suffering from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease (and several other types of central nervous system disorders), HIV/AIDS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, several types of cancer, and even autism in children. Naltrexone was originally used in alcohol/drug withdrawal, but found new use at a much lower dose for a myriad of health conditions as suggested by Ian Zagon, PhD and Bernard Bihari, MD.

This medication seems to be very well tolerated by a majority of patients, with very minimal side-effects unlike many of the medication used in more conventional settings.

This is a prescription medication and should be taken as prescribed by your physician. There are a number of websites dedicated to this therapy and anyone considering this as a possible therapy is advised to visit the sites listed below to become educated about this promising treatment option.
