Multiple Sclerosis Prescription Treatment with LDN
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), which can be potentially disabling. The disease gradually causes deterioration or permanent damage of the nerves. No cure for multiple sclerosis is available, but now some research studies have shown that low dose Naltrexone (LDN) may help in reducing the symptoms of MS.

Use of LDN for Multiple Sclerosis
When low dose Naltrexone is taken in tiny doses (about 10 percent of the size of a regular dose) it could help in improving the symptoms of MS. A compounding pharmacy can prepare LDN in doses of about 5 mg or even lower than that. The patient may optimally benefit from a dose of less than 5 mg per day.
Low dose Naltrexone will release hormones called endorphins in the body over a long period of time. The endorphins will help in mitigating the inflammation, which lies at the root of various MS symptoms. Researchers continue to study the beneficial effects of LDN for multiple sclerosis, and the initial findings have shown significant promise.
Patient Feedback about LDN
Until now the research related to the efficacy of LDN for relieving multiple sclerosis symptoms has only been limited. However, several studies are in progress to determine a correlation between the two. In any case, anecdotal evidence from many patients who are living with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis suggests a positive response of LDN to this condition.
Many patients have reported that taking LDN helped in reducing their number of MS flare ups. Some other patients have said that after taking LDN, the progression of their condition appeared to have slowed down. In addition, most patients reported that LDN causes fewer side effects compared to traditional MS drugs.
What does the Research Say?
Research studies have shown mixed results regarding the effectiveness of LDN in reducing MS symptoms. A case study in 2014 involved a woman who showed improvement in her multiple sclerosis symptoms such as fatigue after she began taking 3 mg of LDN per day. Another research study in 2010 which involved 80 MS patients, showed that LDN resulted in significant improvements in mental health of MS patients and enabled participants to improve their quality of life.
A 2017 research study reviewed the prescription date between 2009 and 2015 to find out whether MS patients required fewer drugs after they began taking LDN. However, the results of the study were inconclusive. Research studies that have been conducted till now in this area largely rely on individual patients or data available from medical facilities. More long-term research studies involving a wider range of participants are required to fully determine the benefits of LDN in reducing MS symptoms.
