Hello. I'm new to the Community. I was originally diagnosed with M.E. but have now been told that I have atypical Lupus with secondary Hughes Syndrome. My rheumatologist has asked me to try Plaquenil, which I am finding very hard to tolerate and I am interested in the potential promise offered by low dose naltrexone (LDN), as an alternative to steroids, etc. There are a number of websites touting it as a 'miracle cure' for a whole host of illnesses, which arouses my scepticism; I am also aware that there has been little other than preliminary formal research into LDN (and not for use with lupus, as far as I am aware). However it is, in its original context, a well proven, safe drug, so I am interested to try to find out more. It would be great to hear from anyone who has tried/is trying it and your experiences. Many thanks.
