I have recently been sent information about the use of this drug, Naltrexone, at very low doses for autoimmune diseases like Lupus and R.A. It is apparently a very old, and cheap, drug previously used at much higher doses to combat opioid addictions (!!)
A doctor discovered in the 80's that it had beneficial effects at these very low doses for autoimmune diseases. However since it has never been officially trial - ed by the big pharma companies ( no profit in it I suppose as out of patent) it has never been registered for use in the NHS for these purposes.
I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has used it as I am considering trying to get access to it. Apparently there are several private doctors prepared to prescribe it cheaply if they are convinced that you would benefit from taking it.
So hope someone on these forums might have had experience of it.
Cheers, hope you are all having a good day. I am very achey and flarey at present so trying to take it a bit easy.
