Advice & Tips: I have been on LDN since November 2009. I have no more rigidity in my neck or right side. Still have some in my left arm. Am not falling as often. I also have more energy then I had when I was not on it. I did stop LDN for about 3 weeks in November 2010 the rigidity came back in my my neck and right side and my left arm got worse. I noticed that my balance had gotten much worse too. Since I restarted the LDN in December 2010 I am back to the way I was feeling before I stopped taking it. I will not go a day with out LDN because this is the only medication that has helped me . I have not experienced any side affects like I did with all of the other medications that I have been on for my Parkinsonism.

Advice & Tips: I have been on LDN for five and a half years now, with no exacerbations, other than the two times I had to stop taking LDN, due to surgery, and the need for narcotics. My last exacerbation occurred one day after stopping LDN , in order to have knee replacement surgery. Due to the exacerbation, I did not have the surgery, and need to comtemplate how I will have this replacement, without the use of narcotic drugs. I will not go off of LDN for any reason, again.
