Recent PubMed Post on LDN Study

I found this recently published article on pubMed very encouraging:

LDN Therapeutic Implications for MS

This is from a Pennsylvania State Univ study published last month.

Admittedly, the study was conducted on the EAE mouse model, but the conclusions are very encouraging and relate to treatment with either OGF or LDN (which produces high endogenous OGF levels):

1. Halted EAE disease progression
2. Reversed neurological deficits, and
3. Prevented onset of dysfunction across considerable span ...

Update from flora68

Hi guys!

Well, I'm still doing great, still taking LDN (4.5 mg), and still NOT interested in trying anything else, thank you, as long as this works so well for me.

The main MS symptom I still have is a cr*ppy short-term memory (I forget what I was doing/saying when I get interrupted) and urinary retention. (Too bad I don't have better memory retention instead of urinary retention...)

Otherwise I don't think much about having ...

LDN for 14 year old teenager

Does anyone have any experience with LDN use for a teenager (14) with possible MS? My daughter is experiencing multiple symptoms. She has one lesion on her spine and "time will tell" comments from the doctor. The symptoms come and go, but lately they seem progressing. Please share any experience you may have. I know LDN has been used in autisn and Crohn's in children, but the studies were only 8 weeks long. I am ...

Do the dreams subside?

I have been on LDN for about 3 months, but at first was also taking 20 mg/night of amitriptyllne, which is sedating.

I'm working on getting off the amitriptyline, and am now down to 10 mg.

It's been about 2 weeks on the lower dose, and I've found that the vivid dreams that started when I started the LDN have become, well, more vivid and sort of tiring. They aren't nightmares, but hectic, fast-paced and ...

LDN & spasms/spasticity

After 7 months on LDN 3mg I had to stop LDN because of increasing severe spasms & intense pain all day & night. I have a baclofen pump that usually controls the pain & spasms but after having numerous tests a dye pumpogram showed that all the baclofen was leaking into the gut through a hole & not going down the spine. (This caused new weakness in left hand/arm which I has taken nearly 4 ...

Side effects after 2 years on LDN?

I have been having some sleep disturbance lately, and headaches (sort of mild, background type), and it reminds me of how I felt when I first started taking LDN two years ago. It seems weird that I'd suddenly be having side effects again after taking it for so long, but that is what this feels like! I'm currently taking 4.5mg and have been at that dose for most of the 2 years (I started at ...

New use in diet pill

The big news today seems to be that an FDA advisory panel is positive about a new diet drug:

http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20101208-714967.html

The mention of naltrexone caught my eye:
Contrave, which is being developed with Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. (TKPYY, 4502.TO), is a combination of two drugs already on the market, addiction-treating naltrexone and the antidepressant bupropion, commonly known by the brand name Wellbutrin. Orexigen argued that Contrave's ingredients have been on the market for 20 years and ...

LDN/COPAXONE COMBINATION

Hi all,

I have been on Copaxone since October of this year, and have noticed a huge increase in my fatigue.....not sure how common this is, but it is very tough trying to keep up with my 2 little ones. I have been doing a lot of reading into LDN and am wondering how many of you take it along with Copaxone? From what I can tell LDN has helped many with fatigue and brain ...
