How Does It Work

To understand how LDN works, we must understand our body’s natural opioids, called endorphins. Evidence shows that our natural endorphins, most commonly known as our natural painkillers, also play an essential role in immune system regulation. We need adequate levels of these endorphins to maintain health.

 

LDN binds to our endorphin receptors. One of these endorphins, OGF, or Opioid Growth Factor, normally sits on these receptors. Low doses of naltrexone block these receptors for just a few hours, and as a result, your body thinks you don’t have enough OGF, so it makes more OGF receptors. Your body, in turn, benefits from the immune-healing repair and decreased pain associated with increased OGF.

 

LDN also decreases brain inflammation by decreasing the activity of microglia, the brain’s immune cells. LDN temporarily blocks Toll-like receptors on sensory nerves, which may reduce pain, and blocks these same Toll-like receptors on mast cells, which can help in conditions such as psoriasis.

 

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is extremely safe, well-tolerated, and inexpensive, which is why it is being used increasingly.

Side Effects

Side effects typically diminish by day five. To reduce the risk of side effects, the recommended protocol is to start with 1.5mg at bedtime for 10 days, then 3mg for 10 days, then 4.5mg daily at bedtime.

Stop taking any dosage of LDN a minimum of 48 hours before any surgical procedure or medical diagnostic requiring sedation. If you are not sure if you need to stop LDN, please ask your doctor ordering the test or procedure. Additionally, LDN may reduce the effect of opioids and prescription pain medication.

Frequently Asked Questions

Naltrexone has been prescribed for over 40 years for alcohol and opioid addiction treatment. Because its patent has long expired, LDN doesn’t have the billion-dollar Pharmaceutical industry behind it any longer, so funding for new studies and trials for low-dose use is limited.
Low-dose naltrexone, as opposed to High-Dose Naltrexone, is still considered investigational by the FDA. High-dose naltrexone (50 mg), on the other hand, has been FDA-approved for the treatment of drug and alcohol abuse/addiction and withdrawal for many years.
LDN must be compounded at a specialty pharmacy, as it is currently only available in 25 or 50-mg tablets at regular pharmacies.
