I have read that it takes awhile for things to calm down after starting but all my old symptoms are coming back, but I am scared! I am on copaxone too ( every other day) and was doing ok except for extreme fatigue which I thought LDN might help. I have trouble falling asleep, more shaking, joint pain, and feel " out of it and dizzy) like there is a weak spot in my brain or something with a stiff neck. I was dx 12/02 and was in bed for 5 weeks and had this same feeling in my head/neck. I have never had trouble walking, thank God! Once I get to 3mg how long should it be before I feel like I did before LDN? I want to make sure I am not hurting myself as I feel terrible. No new symptoms, just the old ones in full force!! thanks for any advise, take care
I beleive we have met on another forum but I'm not positive.
I am wondering if part of your problem is the dosage which you are taking. You may be having problems because your body is not producing enough endorphines and you are not getting the most benefit from the drug. Please read the post just down the page a ways:
Question on how it works posted by CureOrBust
and go the second post by rasnet6
rasnet6 explains how LDN works and that may help you to understand why I am wondering if the problems that you are experiencing are because of your dosage. I have read many anecdotal experiences about LDN and it seems to me that invariably for those who begin with a very low dosage of LDN (1.5) they seem to have more problems than those who begin with 3.0mg. I don't know this is pure speculation on my part all I am trying to relate here is what I have read.
I hope maybe some else can help to answer this question.
Please keep us informed of how you are progressing. I started taking LDN 3.0mg on 1/20/06 and it has been great for me right from the start.
Wishing you the best and I'm sorry you are having so much trouble getting started on LDN.
