  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 4.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: 9 months after being dx with ALS, I noticed that my voice in 2009 stabilized. In 2013, my voice and swallowing are basically the same. I give most credit to taking LDN.

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 4.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am seeing many ALS patients loosing their voice. I am convinced that LDN is what prevented me from loosing mine. I started on the drug a couple years ago, noticed an immediate impact, and have not gotten off. My voice is still around which was contrary to my original progression. I still struggle, but most people can understand what I am saying with very little repeating. Please consider using just to see if it works for you.
Cost: < $25 monthly

    Mild (vivid dreams)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take

Advice & Tips: This seemed to be the reason why I was able to keep my voice. No proof of this fact, but it certainly is the appearance from my perspective.
Cost: < $25 monthly
