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. It has no side effects for me thus far. It is an easy treatment and cost effective therapy to comply with. Seems to complement the therapeutic activity of my cannabis maintenance program for sleep and pain.

Dosage: 3 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When first prescribed, I took 1.5mg nightly for two weeks, then up to 3mg nightly and stayed the for 4 mos. The side effect I has was rigidity. I had given it enough time, and felt no change other than the increased rigidity, so I went down to 1.5mg nighly. I did experiment with dosage time of day and with not taking it for a few days, twice. The only effect I could see, rigidity, continued, so I've stopped taking LDN. I took it for a total of 6 months.
