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.

Link: Finding Help to Afford Prescription Medications

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) are one of several ways to find help. These programs are run by pharmaceutical companies and provide free or low cost medicine to individuals who qualify, according to NeedyMeds, an organization that provides information on programs available to help people afford expensive medications. Those qualifications can vary from company to company, so it’s important to do some research.
