did you take her/him research? or gave a persuasive speech about how LDN would benefit you and your particular circumstances? just trying to figure out what has been working for others so that i can try it
I did a bit of both.
Prior to going to the appointment, I went to the only compounding pharmacy in my town and found out where they get their LDN powder, what they use for filler, how much it costs and a round about number of how many LDN scripts they fill.
I brought the doc some info found on the web that she barely looked at. Then I was brutally honest telling her that nobody knows much of anything about MS. I suggested that the way it works is this: If the Extavia the neuro is pushing seems to work, he pats himself on the back for being a genius. If it doesn't he switches drugs. Nobody knows if success or failure is just due to being in remission. I didn't think that screwing with my immune system and the long list of side effects was a good starting place.
LDN has none of the problems and stands just as good a chance of doing something good as anything else and if it doesn't seem to do anything, I'll try Extavia after 6 months of LDN.
I don't know why but my cognitive problems cleared up right away. Physically nothing has changed much with balance and numbness and all that stuff. I can live with that and I'm still popping my LDN @ 1.5 mg 8 months later.
