Learn what real patients are experiencing with LDN and its impact on MS, fibromyalgia & more.

Low dose naltrexone (LDN) is a safe, clinically proven and inexpensive therapy which utilizes the generic drug naltrexone in very low doses. It is an effective treatment for a range of diseases and disorders including multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue and more.

About LDN:

The term ‘LDN’ refers to the use of Naltrexone at doses below 10 mg per day. Naltrexone exhibits novel and paradoxical effects when administered at these low doses, as discovered by Dr. Ian S. Zagon and his team at Hershey Medical Center, Penn State University, in 1980.

What it is used for:

LDN is used to regulate the immune system in order to provide relief to patients with autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders. Though it is not yet licensed by the FDA specifically for these conditions, physicians are permitted to prescribe LDN ‘off-label’ for any purpose they think is appropriate.

How it works:

LDN appears to have a therapeutic effect on various conditions which appear to benefit from increased levels of endorphins (naturally occurring opioids – specifically the one known as OGF).
