Hi Tulips...

This medication has a lot of promise. Stanford University Pain center is the one doing the research on it. Although it doesn't have approval from the FDA to use it for Fibro, some doctors are prescribing LDN off label use in patients with fibromyalgia. I've held back asking my doc about it but I think I'm about ready to talk to him about it. I wanted to give this some time to make sure the side effects continued to be extremely low first.

I hope someone who has tried this will check in and share about this. Glad you asked the question, Tulip!


Here are some sites for those interested.
