Latest update on taking LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone): sadly after 5 months I've noticed no improvement in symptoms after the initial boost it gave me in mood and motivation/energy levels. And over the past 3 weeks I've had bad side effects and I've had to cut my dose right down to barely nothing. The side effects have driven me crazy - insomnia, heart palpitations and feelings of panic and increased anxiety.
I was taking 2.0ml every night, but cut this down to 1.5ml due to having been in bed for 2 months with bad fluey aches and I heard that LDN can cause them as a side effect. This didn't change things. After getting worse anxiety and palpitations I cut down to 0.5ml but I was still getting them, so now I only take 0.25ml in the morning, every other day, and I'm not sure this will have any positive effect??
I am so disappointed. I was really hoping LDN would finally be the drug that gave me some relief from my symptoms, but alas it has not been the 'magic cure'. I am still just as tired, with the same levels of pain all over. I'm now feeling a little bit down because I've tried so many drug options and none of them have worked for me. I've tried so many natural remedies too. I am worried that I'm yet again left with no treatment plan. Anyone else tried LDN?? Any advice??
