NALTREXONE in a low dose - the cure?
Hi everybody after pretty long absence of mine ;]
I still have been treated with azathioprine and infliximab, together with 5-ASA.
However, I am aware that this sort of therapy cannot be continued eternally. Remicade is pretty expensive med and the Health System in Poland is in quite a poor condition currently. :/
Recently, I have found some information on "Low Dose Naltrexone", which is thought to be a great med (or even the cure?) for the autoimmunological diseases.
And this is my question to all of you: has any of you tried the "LDN" therapy? If so, has it been effective?
Any details will be greatly appreciated.
I am afraid this is not a cure for UC. It is a treatment.
I have been on LDN for almost 2 yeard now. Initially, I had a great response. However, I have flared one major time and have some other instances of slight disease exaberation all while taking 4.0mg / night.
Some individuals do really well on LDN while others seem to have little or no benifit. I seem to fall somewhere in the middle. It may be that I need to tweak my does to get a better result.
The last study was done on a small group of Crohn's patients and seemed to have good response.
The medicine is considered to be pretty safe in the small dose. You should try it, in my opinion.
