Low Dose Naltrexone

Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) describes the off-label use of the medication naltrexone at low doses for diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Naltrexone is typically prescribed for opioid dependence or alcohol dependence, as it is a strong opioid antagonist. Preliminary research has been promising for use of LDN in treating chronic medical conditions such as chronic pain, but at this stage the use of LDN as a treatment is still experimental and more research needs to be done before it can be widely recommended. – Wikipedia

According to the website, www.lowdosenaltrexone.org, LDN can “normalize the immune system, helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders”. The website gives information on what LDN is, how it works, and has a section on autoimmune diseases.
