  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 4.2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My Kaiser Internal Medicine MD would not prescribe because it's off-label, even though I sent her links to two studies that showed this was helpful and with no side effects. A functional medicine doctor my husband had been seeing prescribed it for me instead. YI - It has to be compounded at a Pharmacy and I have to pay out of pocket since Kaiser won't prescribe. It helps take some of the "nervy" burning pain away and I have not had any side effects whatsoever like I have with every other medication.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

Advice & Tips: After a couple weeks on LDN, I am still getting symptomatic relief of all depression and anxiety and feeling less lethargic. It is also helpful for my chronic pain.

Seems to complement the therapeutic activity of my cannabis maintenance program for sleep and pain.

Advice & Tips: I was perscribed larger pills to hack down, which was a pain in the butt and probably made for wonky dosages. I seemed to get more restful sleep while taking LDN. Didn't notice anything for my pain though.
