I wrote several months ago on a fairly controversial topic regarding starting the use of Low Dose Naltrexone (orally 0.5mg) which in a short time made me feel nauseous even on such a low dose. Pharmaceutical Compounding made me a paraben free cream & I apply to areas of inflammation or where it hurts the most - mainly ongoing tendon/ligament issues plus other pain in upper feet, heels & elbows which I suspect from side effects of my steroids.
This was Feb 21st & have slowly built my tolerance starting at 1gm for 2 to 3 weeks & so forth to the 3gms now on & tolerating well.
Thus far I wish to report to my PMR/arthritic friends that it certainly is doing something for me.
As my PMR slowly wanes (hopefully) noticeably osteoarthritis in hands & feet far more evident .
I am now on 15mgs (daily) Hydrocortisone which is equivalent to 3.75mg Pred & have remained stable for past 8 days on this low dose. Will remain here for a time now as winter may be peeping in Auckland tonight at 10 degrees - brrrrrrrrrr and I can succumb to respiratory issues come change of seasons .
We have had a wonderfully warm autumn albeit a trifle wet.
Blessings one & all in the hope this finds you bright & as well as can be
