Low-Dose Naltrexone for MS, Crohn’s Disease and Fibromyalgia BY Y SONIA A MARTINEZ,, RPH

Naltrexone is a medication that has been used in narcotic withdrawal programs. The University of Iowa College of Medicine has reported that there is overwhelming anecdotal evidence that low-dose naltrexone (LDN) not only prevents relapses in multiple sclerosis (MS) but also reduces the progression of the disease. LDN also has been well tolerated and clinically effective in patients with active Crohn's disease. A pilot clinical trial conducted by the Division of Pain Management, Stanford University, showed that treatment with low-dose naltrexone reduced symptoms of fibromyalgia by more than 30%. Side effects were rare, minor and transient. Researchers concluded that low-dose naltrexone might be an effective, highly tolerable, and inexpensive treatment for fibromyalgia. We can compound medications such as LDN that are not commercially available. Your questions are welcome.
