Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) FAQs

What is LDN?

LDN stands for Low Dose Naltrexone. It is a novel treatment option being used for many medical conditions. Naltrexone is a medication that has been FDA approved for decades to treat drug and alcohol dependence but research has shown that in very small doses it can help the body work to improve many different medical conditions including chronic pain, autoimmune conditions, depression and much more.

Why doesn't my doctor know about LDN?

Naltrexone has been a generic drug that is only available as a 50mg tablet or a brand name long acting injection so no drug company can profit from promoting it for other uses.

Where can I get LDN?

You can get LDN from compounding pharmacies like ours. Since it is only available as a 50mg tablet, it needs to be compounded into the specific dose that you will need. The doses range from less than 1mg to about 10mg.

What are the side effects of LDN?

Since the dose is so low, the side effects are minimal but studies show about 10% of patients might experience things like vivid dreams, sleep disturbances, nausea, constipation or diarrhea. These mild side effects generally go away in 2-4 days.

How fast does LDN work?

LDN can start working in as little as a few weeks to a few months. It’s hard to know how someone will respond because everyone is unique. We will check in with you monthly to check on your progress and recommend dose adjustments to help you get them most benefit from LDN.
