Re: Doc upped the Low Dose Naltrexone
Yes, I think overall the LDN is still helping. I do have multiple issues other than Lupus and FMS, so I may complain at time, but overall I am better, better spirits, a little more energy, and not taking much for pain. I try to use other methods to curb the pain since I have so many medication issues. I don't know if it is the LDN or not but I do not have any appetite, but I have never been a big fan of food anyway. I am supplementing with a GNC protein shake a day to make sure I don't drop any more weight. I do hope that if you want to try the LDN therapy that you can find a doctor that is familiar with it's use. I do know that I was with this Rheumatologist almost 3 years before he tried it. I do think my medication sensitivities had him go to some alternative (multiple pain and even anesthetic, steroid allergies) med trial for me. I know I am reading good things about the therapy as well. I am an advocate for anything that will make our lives more manageable.
