I use LDN. Got my diagnos this summer. Used prednisone, but when I tapered, almost all my symptoms returned. Started LDN. Wake up the next day, and had a painfree day. This has continued now for almost 4 weeks. I know it's early to tell anything, this could be placebo or that I was supposed to go in a remission then, but it COULD be that LDN works this well for me. Then it is a little miracle
The medicin must be taken between 9 and 2 p.m. and regularly each night. One often start with 3 mg. Increases the dose after a couple of weeks to 4.5 mg. Don't take more than that, it won't work then! If you are using prednisone, entocort, remicade, pentasa or humira, you can't use LDN. It's contraindicated. LDN won't work then. If u use pain killers (narcotics), you can't use LDN.
