LDN

I came across a couple of sites that say that Parkinson may possibly an autoimmune disease. That a Low Dose Naltrexone has helped a lot of get off Parkinson meds. There is a lady who went on it and no longer has Parkinson symptoms and clearly had Parkinsons, video is on You Tube. Search LDN. Has anyone tried this?

No but I asked my neurologist and he says it would not be covered.

I have been using LDN for about 2 years. Is really helps with the well-being of your mind and body. I use a 3 mg. I get 50 mg uncoated pills and dissolve one in 50 mg of water and use a syringe to withdraw 3 mg. You do need a prescription unless you want to send away for it from a Canadian pharmacy.

You still have Parkinson's but I think you are feeling better. I stopped one time and went back on it. So there was a definite difference of feeling worse without it.

It comes in 50 mg tablets, you crush tablet and dissolve it into distilled water. Use a syringe to measure it out. Start off with 1.5 mg before bed every night, increase slightly each month until you get to 3 mg. There's an YouTube video on how to dilute it.

Do a search within the Healthunlocked PD site because this subject has been discussed before.

Tried that nothing came up

Here is a general internet search about LDN, healthunlocked & silvestrov. I participated in a number of LDN/HU threads:

Lots of info re LDN in USA, has anyone purchased it in UK or Spain if so where? Or had their GP or neuro prescribe it?

Tamarisk we're in England but obtained LDN on private prescription via Scotland (I think it was Dixon's but it came up in a google search). Last year the prescription cost £35 for 3 months and the LDN itself was £18 for one month's supply. We were really banking on it helping with my husband's problem of what he calls 'walking like a monkey' where his thigh muscles and torso just don't seem to support his weight. Unfortunately for him, after 3 months it didn't help, in fact he became worse insofar as he developed bad stomach cramps and became quite morose - both these symptoms disappeared when he stopped taking the LDN

I've been taking for a couple of years, not sure if it helps as my symptoms were minimal when started, they have progressed some. I take 4.5mg once a day, and have it compounded. It's not expensive but insurance doesn't pay. I get it from a compounding pharmacy in Colorado and it requires a prescription.
