Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

Naltrexone has been around for quite some time and was approved in the 1980’s by the FDA to be used in treating patients suffering from chronic addictions to opioids and alcohol, with the typical dose for a patient being between 50 milligrams – 100 milligrams each day. In 1985, Bernard Bihari, MD, a physician with a clinical practice in New York City, discovered the effects of a much smaller dose of Naltrexone (approximately 3mg once a day) on the body’s immune system. He found that this low dose, taken at bedtime, was able to enhance a patient’s response to infection by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. [Note: Subsequently, the optimal adult dosage of LDN has been found to be 4.5mg.]

In the mid-1990’s, Dr. Bihari found that patients in his practice with cancer (such as lymphoma or pancreatic cancer) could benefit, in some cases dramatically, from LDN. In addition, people who had an autoimmune disease (such as lupus) often showed prompt control of disease activity while taking LDN.

How is Low-Dose Naltrexone Used?

LDN has shown in studies to have paradoxical properties, including analgesia and anti-inflammatory actions, which have not been reported at larger dosages. It has been used to treat patients with opioid addiction’s as well as alcoholism but now Low-Dose Naltrexone has been used to help treat a wide variety of medical conditions such as:
