Have had MS for 30 years
Have been taking LDN for 1 year
Started with 1mg, & noticed a positive difference immediately
Within a week I was taking 3mg, then onto 4mg but spasticity got worse, so went back to 3mg, & am happy on this dose.
My local pharmacy compounds this (and my 4-AP).
I was pretty much near death 1 year ago. Was taking methotrexate, clomazepam, baclofen. Asleep all the time, spaced out, felt terrible, didn't shower for up to a week due to heat fatigue ( I had to go to
bed for 2 hours to recover from the shower). Was virtually incontinent bowel & bladder
Had nothing to lose. Got on the web, discovered LDN & 4-AP - threw all toxic DMD's away, departed company from the neuro.
Incontinence, gross fatigue, face falling in the frypan when cooking on the stove (you would identify with that!), all disappeared with the LDN
Leg weakness disappeared with taking 4-AP
My life turned around with 4-AP & LDN !!!!!!!! Also take some Baclofen, but No DMD's
I am awake all the time, have great energy, people say I look well too.
I am a Huge LDN advocate

I have the following known allergies: I have had 3 anaphlytic shock reactions (mercury being chelated, herbal detox tea, minomycin). I have been allergic to everything drugs, supplements, chemicals, mould, food etc. Have only managed to take what I do (LDN every second night & baclofen in pump & a few supplements) by constant & frequent visits to the kinesiologist with whose help I am much less allergic
I was also taking the following medicines at the time: baclofen in pump (important!)
My side effects with LDN were
1 insomnia (6 months),
2 Hot hands at night (come and go but not so intense now)
3 Severe spasticity apparently this is due to the fact that LDN boosts the cytokines & this can have a side effect of spasticity for those who are prone to it. Kinesiologist sorted this out for me but we found that my body can only take LDN every second night.
I constantly have to be aware of what I might be reacting to and it took me more than a year to find what LDN dose worked best.
I am a HUGE fan of LDN.
I have had no progression and improvement in up to 15 symptoms.
