I have been on 3.5 of LDN for months now, self prescribing myself through the help of the LDN yahoo group. THere are not alot of Crohn's patients on there though so I am turning to HW and seeing what your dosage is? Reason I am asking is b/c I finally found a dr who is for LDN and she prescribes all her patients 5.0! All I ever read is to not go over 4.5 but she declares this is the correct dose Crohn's patients should be on.

i was on 4.5, so that sounds right. I wonder why she feels 5mg is correct? Does she give any reason?
