Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

Submitted by HM Compounding

There has been much written about FDA approved Naltrexone’s “off label” uses. The most recent news as of November 4th 2010 for Naltrexone’s off label indications, gives hope to many other people suffering from serious and debilitating illnesses.

The main source for information about LDN, as you probably already know is:

This is such a rich and tremendously impressive website with so much scientific and anecdotal support for the use of LDN with so many indications.

However this is not the only source, an abundance of positive and supportive literature from many avant-garde Medical Doctors, PhD’s, and other categories of scientists, lay people, and many, many patients is out there for all who want to know more.

Yet, one still might wonder why so many mainstream health care practitioners know little or nothing about it?

The answer is quite simple. Most of the mainstream doctors rely on the information provided to them by the pharmaceutical sales representatives for FDA approved marketed drugs in the US.

While Naltrexone is an FDA approved drug in the US, it comes in only one strength and is used primarily in the management of alcohol and opioid dependence.

But LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone), in most of the cases about 1/10th of the commercial Naltrexone strength, has a totally different mechanism of action, leading to totally different off label indications with extraordinary outcomes. There must be a reason why so many people who have experience with Naltrexone in its Low Dose version, whether practitioners or the patients, rave about it and some have referred to it as “the miracle drug of the century”.

One very important thing you should know though: in order to have access to LDN you have to work with a doctor who knows about LDN and works with a reputable compounding pharmacy.

As the strength and dosage may vary from patient to patient based on so many individual criteria, LDN has to be prepared by a compounding pharmacy upon receipt of an individualized prescription from the health care practitioner.
