2+ months on LDN and spasticity and pain through the roof!

This is like my 3rd time trying ldn. I am on 3mg. I have been on it for over 2 months, no missed doses, and since day one the spasticity has increased 10 fold. I am already wheelchair bound 95% of the time, so this increase in spasticity has made it even harder for therapy and walking. It has also tripled my pain! Please tell me that I am not the only one on the ...

Does dosage have a linear relationship with side effects?

I started out at 1 mg about 3 months ago and didn't notice much of a change, except maybe a bit more weakness or spasticity. After a month, I doubled to 2 mg and am still there. Weakness and spasticity seem to be worse.

I initially filled a prescription at 4.5mg, but never took it until I worked my way up. I always thought I would get there, but now wonder if I should even ...

Starting Dose (4.5mg)

I know it is recommended to start at 3mg or less than work up, but the tablets I ordered only came in 4.5 mg doses and I chose that over the mix-your-own solution for convenience.
I have never really experienced spasticity. I have had considerable stiffness during my last attack. I am not worried about symptoms increasing initially, I will deal with that as it comes.
My question is, will starting straight away at 4.5 ...

Trustworthy source (also dosing question)?

After being denied a prescription by my neurologist, I went looking to bypass the system online. I found the 50mg tablets at alldaychemist but then I stumbled upon this site which seems to sell LDN already in the low dose form:
http://www.antiaging-systems.com/113-naltrexone

Does this look like a trustworthy source to you guys? Does anyone order from here already?
When I was planning on getting the 50mg tablet to convert ...

First dose

My doc has prescribed LDN, 4.5 mg, which I will be starting tomorrow. I know everyone reacts differently, but what is the range of things I can expect in the first few doses? Is it better to take in the morning or night time? (I would prefer to take in the morning so I can see how I react.)

Thanks!

LDN and Avonex

I have gotten my doctor to Rx LDN but she is telling me to take it as well as my Avonex. The reason I wanted LDN in the first place to get rid of the Avonex- period. I was Dx in July, but have probably had this for over twenty years when my toes started tingling for no reason. (yes, they still tingle.) I got the Dx after my orthopedist got an MRI of my ...

LDN and Insurance?

I'm newly diagnosed and thinking of trying LDN before any of the other treatments. Is LDN typically covered by insurance since it is not 'approved' for MS? If not, how much does a typical monthly prescription cost including shipping?

Thanks!!!

Other ways to boost endorphines?

I have read that the most common belief on the workings of LDN revolve around the endorphins boost soon after taking LDN. I have also read elsewhere that Naltrexone is thought to have some specific mechanism within the CNS. However, on the endorphins, has anyone tried a floatation tank?
