New to the board- LDN ?'s

Postby PhireX » Thu Jan 20, 2005 4:23 am

Hey. My minds made up after doing as much research on LDN as I thinks possible.


Problem being- I live in australia.

Money is no object. My health is!

Could anyone suggest how I would go about this? I'd basically want to do it the safest way- I intend on ordering it through a reputable pharmacy like Skip's and having it shipped to Australia (if that's possible?) just to ensure the quality of the product.

Any problems shipping it? ie, heat, transport, etc? Or will it remain stable throughout the journey?

I am going to go on Copaxone soon aswell.

So do I just ring one of the doctors (I dont mind getting up at 5 am to do it, hah) and organise a phone consultation? What steps are involved?

If someone could PM me that would be good. I'm still relatively new to all of this, my left hand is slowly getting worse and I dont want this to be ongoing. I've just been diagnosed and I intend on this not being something that will effect me later on down the track.

Also, the only "side effect" I seem to read about is trouble sleeping. The nausea, etc seems to be a problem with the filler as far as I can see?

Any problems taking sleeping pills, ie Temazapam through the initial stages of this to help you sleep?

Would be great if someone could help me out! I'll check back tomorrow and see what you wonderful people have to say!

I'll ask my GP/ Neuro for a script but I dont like my odds of obtaining one. Probably more likely through my GP than Neuro. He wants me on Beta, eww. Tried Rebif once, no thanks. They can keep their $1,500 a month.

1st. Welcome to the family.
2nd. My recommendation if you are going to try Copaxone and LDN would be not to do both at the same time, at least not for a while untill you are sure there are no side affects from one. My reason is that I have done Copaxone and it caused muscle pain, even flaired up my tendenitist. Stop Copaxone and pain went away. I've had no side affects on LDN. No sleep problems, still have some stiffness and leg spasms but not as bad as before. Haven't seen the big dramactics others have, but it's little steps that turn into the big ones. Been on LDN since October, 2004. Also take liquid Vitamins.
Good luck to you.
I was dx. in 1993.

Hi, Phirex! There is a large LDN group on yahoo with several members in Australia using LDN. Post your question there and you will get your answers! Take care...

Good luck!
