@mark - thanks for the reply and positive feedback! It’s on the list to try. Tough to find a doc to prescribe it, eh? Oh my goodness, and then finding a pharmacy to dispense it?! Lucky for us, we know a doc and have a decent pharmacy who are close enough who will do it. Just waiting on dr to fax it through. Fingers crossed this, at the very least, gets DH flare under control. His next hospital visit will be surgery indefinitely.
I was lucky and was able to get it right away when I wanted it, but I know others have problems. This is an off label use of LDN that many doctors know nothing about
. I have heard all kinds of stories of MDs rejecting requests... including accusing patients of wanting to use it like an opiate... which is absurd, it doesn't even get you high.
Make sure you take it close to bedtime. It works best overnight. The ideal time for the LDN to be active is between 11pm-2am because the body releases the most healing endorphins during this time. It might make your dreams crazy for the first few weeks but give it time. Nap during the day if necessary.
