Abstract

One can compound LDN using commercially available tablets and orange juice. Doing so helps improve the texture and taste over using water. The ratio of medicine to juice is described. It is recommended to keep the mixture in the refrigerator and shake it prior to dispensing. Other juice flavors can be used based on patient preference. Following this procedure, patients can expect to get 3 months of medicine for about $15. Making LDN inexpensively should allow for the expansion of the use of LDN.
