I am now almost unable to walk. My girlfriend - an MD trained at ...

how to make it more effective?


I do not appear to have any of the side effects from LDN (ie the lucid dreams / night sweats). I have also had relapses while on LDN.

I am on 4.5mg / night. I have tried lower doses, and ensure my stomach is empty for a few hours before taking it. I have also tried emtying the tablet contents from the capsule, directly into my mouth. My compounder is pretty respected for LDN ...
