Anyone hear of transdermal LDN???

Postby CCmom » Sun Aug 08, 2004 5:44 am

Someone in Southern Ontario recently told me that there was a transdermal LDN available. I had never heard of this, and thought maybe they had confused it with Prokarin. But, she did say that she spoke with Skip in Boca Raton and he advised her not to use it, so maybe she is right.

Just wondered if anyone else was familiar with it and using it.

My son continues to do really well at 3 mg., he's on top of the world, having the best summer he has had since before he became sick 3 years ago.

Take care!

Kim,

I also read somewhere (can't remember the site) that transdermal LDN had been tried by someone. Not sure of the results but I think the test was done to see if the drug provided a better delivery into the system as opposed to the pill.

Thanks, Harry. My friend contacted Skip and he told her that it was not something he would recommend, that the absorption wasn't what it should be, so I guess she really wasn't confusing it with Prokarin.

The pill form is not a problem for my son, he is tolerating it really well. So, my theory here is - if it ain't broke, don't fix it! :roll:

How is Marg these days? I have been really busy and haven't been on line as much as usual. I hope she is doing well.

I'm thinking about starting my son on the Prokarin, just haven't had the time to dig in and do the research yet to make my decision. I can't imagine him feeling any better than he does right now. He ran his 4 wheeler off in a ditch Friday night, flipped it, and crawled out a little worse for wear and scraped from top to bottom, but smiling all the while. The 4 wheeler was just gathering dust last summer while he was on Rebif. I may need a sedative if Evel Kneivel feels any better than he does right now! :?

Have a great weekend!

Kim,

She is till holding her own and still suffers a lot from the daily spasms. Her ability to transfer from her wheel-chair has improved a bit and the legs seem a bit stronger. If only she could get rid of the spasms.

Have a great weekend!

Prokarin has the ability to relieve a number of MS symptoms but if your son isn't suffering any of them now, especially fatigue, then you may just want to wait and see how he continues to progress with LDN.
