Has Anyone Tried Low Dose Naltrexone For Their Fibro?

Has Anyone Tried Low Dose Naltrexone For Their Fibro?

I was just wondering if any of you have tried LDN (low dose naltrexone)? If you have, what dosage works for you, how have your symptoms improved, and how long before you saw improvement?

I’ve been on 4.5mg for two months now. It is helping with the pain. I do have some bad days but not as many as I had before. However, I noticed I’ve become more depressed and I have been getting a lot of migraines. I can’t seem to get motivated to do much of anything anymore even though I have less pain. Going to take it every other day to see if my depression lifts any and if not I’m going to have to stop taking it. Hopefully I can find something else that will help.

I started taking 4.5mg on Thursday (four days ago). So far, I'm still pretty queasy, but that seems to be the only negative side effect, so far.

I started taking Naltrexone in Sept. 2019, it has I proved my pain enormously. I take 25 mg in the morning. Yah, I know way more than has been recommended, I am very medication resitent. Everyone is different. I also get nerve blocking shots in my back every two months. They are also very beneficial. I also take 3600 mg per day of gabapentin and 200 mg of trazadone and ingest Cannabis oil....plus alot of supplements and regular exercise. I feel often there is a big commination of drugs, etc. to help, not cure...fibro is FOREVER! Still am very fatigued for several days at a time when i over do it, which i often do....got to get stuff done!!!

Good question and one I was going to ask. There is so much talk right now about using it for FM but I haven’t heard how effective it is. Thanks for asking.
