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.
