LDN Drug Interactions?

Where can I find out if LDN has any known interactions with others meds? Specifically - Ambien & Provigil?

I asked Dr bihari about interactions with other meds when I consulted with him over the phone. He said there were none, other than with opioids. Haven't checked out the accuracy of that statement myself though.

Other than opiods I don't know of any interactions.

Bear in mind that many commonly prescribed meds for cough and pain contain codeine (e.g. vicodin would be one example). Such meds might work less well or not at all while one is on LDN.

To the best of my recollection, THC, the active ingredient in Sativex, is not an opioid.

Thank you for that NHE. I had muddled opioids with cannaboids.
