Looking for options low dose naltexone??

Hi... I'm still trying to find a medication. I can tolerate and that will work. I've been on just about all of the medications including biologics. The most recent was cimzia. It was awesome for controlling the inflammation but within 1 week I had to him in antibiotics and developed hypertension that would have needed to be treated. Considering LDN anyone try it before??

Not tried it but have read a bit about it and posted here about it too.

If in the UK, it is not passed by NICE guidelines. In the USA it is FDA approved.

I think you have to have tried at least two DMARDs and not done well on them before you can get LDN but might well be worth a try.

I believe there are a few on here who are on it, so you might get a more helpful response soon.

If you put LDN or Naltexone in the search box top right you will get previous posts on it.

It is definitely worth a try. It does seem to work very well for some. For 10-15% not at all, reason not known. Lots of new research around the product. I used it for 2 years. It has been shown to decrease pain and inflammation and is not toxic in any way. If you want to learn more about it best find on these pages.

I will be happy to help you if you need more info😊 Good luck. Simba

Thank you! Great info in there:) I'm also trying to find out how it effects the adrenal. I have low cortisol SAI prednisone so no meds that would lower cortisol are good for me.

I think you should ask the doctors at LDN website about your medical questions, you get the best answers there. Good luck.

You could also try leaving out dairy and gluten for a few weeks. Often has a calming effect on inflammation.

I am slowly removing gluten and dairy. Dairy is almost gone but it is much harder eliminating gluten

Oh don't I know:( But I think this is usually one of the main culprits:( I try to eat gluten free bread but it's really not the same. But on the other hand choosing between pain and gluten free, there is no competion. I am right now testing to leave dairy. I haven't wanted to stop, hoping cheese or goat milk products would be ok. Now I have given up and will be dairy free for a month. Good luck:) Simba
