My doctor suggested a low dose of Naltrexone would help with fibromyalgia pain. Has anyone tried this treatment?
High doses of Naltrexone is for alcohol and opiate withdrawal. (50mg+)
LDN (low dose Naltrexone) blocks the pain receptors in your brain.(1-5mg)
It is not a narcotic. It's an opiate blocker.
I have been on it since january. It has helped about 30%
I had taken it for over a year about a year ago and honestly, it was the best thing I've tried. I have taken every medication out there for Fibro. I still had bad days, but I was functional.
Then I moved to Colorado and no one wanted to prescribe it and then I started pain management .. but yes, it's worth a try!
The only downside is - if you get into a situation where you need to take narcotics, you can't.
Tramadol has never done a thing for me. It was like taking Tums for a headache lol.
