Thank you Whitebeard and PALady your support and concern is so appreciated!!
Welcome, I am so glad to hear of your results with LDN!
I had read some studies that LDN is quite successful for Crohns.
As I posted I've been on it since March and I am so thankful I decided to give it a try. Last week I met an old patient of mine, she is 39 and has severe RA her Dr. (my old boss) started her on it 3 weeks ago and she feels the LDN is helping her pain level. I believe we will see alot more uses for LDN in the near future.
Please keep us posted on your progress!
You can do your own search on Google. I worked for an M.D. who is also a Homeopath for 21 yrs. I am lucky because he is always looking for something to help my situation! I found out through him and before I started on the LDN discussed it with my PMD. He had never heard of it and as soon as I told him went to his computer and looked at some of the studies. Since my results he has started a few other people on LDN. I saw him on Wednesday and he said it seems to be working for the patients he has prescribed it for.
Do your own research, I was told no side effects except fatigue...which lasted about 10 days for me. Like Mickey I went off it for 2 weeks to prove to myself and Dr's that it was working for me. Am I pain free no but I am able to do things I couldn't 8 months ago.
The cost is low in comparison to other things we take and you know quickly if it will help you! I noticed relief within days of starting it, my 1st relief was being able to sleep through the night without waking every hour from pain.
I am still on Norco but dosage is down to 1 or 2 a day......MIRACLE! Most times advil and Homeopathics is sufficient!
P.S. Drug Addicts and Alcoholics are given this at a 50 mg. dosage.....LDN starts as low as 1 mg., for CP dosage can go as high as 6 mg. I started at 3 mg and am now on 3.5 for the last 60 days, if this dose stops working they will increase it at .5 increments.
