Naltrexone is in big doses, from 50 mg and up to 250 mg a mediciation used to block the mu receptors for those who are addicted to heroin or alcohol. Low dose naltrexone, LDN, is compounded from naltrexone, and is in a very small dose.
Make sure your doctor has written a rx on 3 mg or less, so that you can find a proper dose that suits you the best. Many starts with 3 mg and increases to 4.5 mg.
The results of the phase II trial will be in the pipeline during the next year, as far as I know, and untill then don't mix big doses of entocort or big doses of prednisone with LDN. Small maintanance doses from 10 mg and down with prednisone or from 3 mg and down with entocort is acceptable.
Don't either mix any pain medicines containing narcotics with LDN. These pain medicines (made of morphine) is going to the same receptor site as naltrexone, this means that the pain medicine won't work. If you have to use pain meds while on LDN (often the LDN increases the endorphins so much that you don't have to), just use other brands not containing morphine.
Other medicines that is suppressing the immune system is not to be taken while on LDN. The reason is that the trial still isn't closed, and we actually don't know if it's possible to mix those modulating or suppressing the immune system with LDN.
Still entocort and prednisone in small doses as written above is ok, because when those are at that low dose level, they don't suppress the immune system as they do when more than 10 mg. Asacol is one of the medicines that could be used with LDN
LDN is a no brainer, but you have to learn what kind of medicines that is allowed to use with LDN. If you go to a yahoo group, you could find a lot of good advice there. Just take your time and do a good research. And, yes, many doctors don't know LDN, it's an off label medicine. But ABSOLUTELY legal to use./bee
