Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) & Chronic Pain

Managing Chronic Pain with Low Dose Naltrexone

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is being used in a variety of chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, neuropathies, musculoskeletal pain and others. Studies show that LDN can help reduce inflammatory markers which are usually high if you have pain.

Current drug treatments for pain include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS-Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve), opioid pain medications (hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine), antidepressants and others. These treatments can be risky, carry side effects, be expensive or ineffective.

With its low side effects and low cost, LDN can be a good option if you suffer from chronic pain. Below is a sampling of studies on LDN and its use in a variety of pain conditions.
