he said it proven to have very few and mild side effects, that it is a well tolerated drug, but that it has not been proven, no better effect then in placebo group, so the answer was no, i could not have that
I managed to get LDN and felt pretty good on it, but I went through quite a few doctors before I got the first prescription - and it definitely IS a prescription drug, although only a few mg of one. You will need a scrip before taking it to a compounding pharmacy like Skip's - that's where I got mine, too.
Here's a link to the thread here where I gave my experience on LDN.
I'm trying to remember how many docs I asked before I finally settled for one who did LDN consultations and scrips by phone (Yikes!) and it cost me a bundle, but the idea of taking one of the CRAB meds scared the holy crap out of me and I was determined to try LDN.
**my neuro at the time just flat out said no
**My long-time PCP panicked and ran down the hall to call my neuro to tell on me...
**I switched PCPs, and that one told me she couldn't give me a scrip for LDN because crazed drug addicts might attack me to steal it...she suggested bee venom therapy or mercury amalgam removal instead... (I hear she's currently under investigation as one of the top pain pill distributors in the country)
**the Phone-In LDN Doc was forced to stop doing phone consults altogether after a couple of months
**a new PCP finally prescribed it for awhile, until she switched medical centers, and fired me as a patient with a certified letter...
Of course, any one of them would have prescribed me one of the powerful, side effect producing CRABs instead, or most any other med (except marijuana...). My1st neuro even handed me scrips at my first visit, for symptoms I didn't even have - and they were for dangerous, addictive meds I didn't ask for. Then later she fired me, too - for not taking them.
Best of luck in getting a scrip for something that makes you feel better instead of worse!
P.S. I've had some of the worst docs ever, but also some of the best, too.
