Low Dose Naltrexone
Naltrexone is an opiate antagonist that is most commonly prescribed in high dosages to treat addiction. When prescribed in lower dosages, Naltrexone has been shown to improve symptoms of chronic pain and illnesses. Low dose naltrexone is considered to act as an anti-inflammatory to help aid the lungs in those who have had COVID-19 and even provide relief of neurological symptoms contributing to brain fog and fatigue.
