Advice & Tips: I had to stop in order to begin normast. Because LDN blocks opioid receptors throughout the body for three or four hours, people using medicine that is an opioid agonist, i.e. narcotic medication — such as Ultram (tramadol), morphine, Percocet, Duragesic patch or codeine-containing medication — should not take LDN until such medicine is completely out of one's system.

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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.

Advice & Tips: since I started LDN I have noticed more and more positive benefits. No, I haven't got up and walked but my legs are so muchbetter, no spasticity, no pain, no nothing! I think because I haven't walked for so long, that will not realistically happen at all. Another very big positive is that I no longer have to wear pads to protect dribbles of urine, yes I do like to be within easy reach of a toilet but..hey.. that is also my age I'm sure. I had a wonderful 3 weeks in France with my Sister and all went superbly. I now want to go and live in Paris!!!! only joking! So I am totally hooked on LDN, why isn't everyone with MS on it?
