LDN, Chronic Pain & Quality of Life
There are many patients afflicted with autoimmune disease and chronic pain. It can be daunting to look into different options to help alleviate the effects and you may be unsure of which ones may actually work for you. However, you may want to consider low-dose naltrexone (LDN) as one of your choices.
What Is Low-Dose Naltrexone?
Naltrexone is a competitive opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids without any narcotic effects. It was approved by the FDA in 1984 for the treatment of opioid addiction and has since been under study as a non-opioid alternative for addressing autoimmune disease and chronic pain when used in low doses.

What Have Patients Been Using LDN For?
Advancements in the compounding of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) has lead many providers to suggest patients consider alternatives like LDN in addressing:
- Chronic Pain
- Lyme Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Chronic Fatigue
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Behavioral Disorders
- Parkinson’s Disease
Is It Safe?
As mentioned, LDN has no narcotic effects and many medical experts believe it could be the answer to the U.S. Opioid Epidemic. Patients have a choice when treating pain, and LDN eliminates the associated risks that come with addictive opioids.

Those who started their prescription reported having vivid dreams. There were also those who experienced nausea, difficulty in sleeping, and skin rashes, among others. These side effects however, resolve over time, even with continued LDN use.
