Dr. Mercola.com has information on his website regarding use of low dose naltrexone (only 3-4.5 mg) use for autoimmune diseases. he lists other sites you can go to. its very good information with studies.

There are some folks on this board currently using it. I do get concerned though when people get things off the internet instead of consulting with their personal doctors about it. Some have had good luck with it, others not so good luck with it. JMHO

Here's a link to the video and article on Mercola's site:
The great thing is it appears to be relatively safe and inexpensive.

My LDN was prescribed by my GI doc with full support, and I get it compounded at the drugstore down the street. I found out about it on the internet, but the rest has happened the good ole fashioned way for me.

I had LDN prescribed by my family MD. I had looked into the current study going on at Penn State Hershey, it's the second trial there. I opted not to persue that though since there's not guarantee I wouldn't end up with the placebo. So far LDN seems to be working well for me, no miracle cure but then again nothing is.
