  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for Unknown)
  • Side effects
    Moderate
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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.
Cost: < $25 monthly

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.
