LDN is Low Dose Naltrexone. Naltrexone is a drug that stops the activity of opioids and alcohol. It has been found that low doses (titrating up to 4.5 mg rather than a full dose of 50 mg) can relieve pain.

I was only on LDN for 1 month before I had to quit taking it. I take extra Cymbalta, which takes the edge off.

I took LDN and it really worked for me. Another doctor (not the prescribing one) told me to get my liver enzymes checked once per month. I did and my liver enzymes skyrocketed! So I had to go off of it.

What is LDN? I can't take ibuprofen because of my kidney disease so I take 1 percocet a day. I'm worried about my liver too from the acetaminophen. Not to mention the narcotic itself and all that goes along with that.

Oh wow!! How long had you been on it before that happened? Have you found any other drugs that have been helpful? Thanks for the heads up on that!
