Results of the most recent clinical trials are an important step in determining if there is any benefit for people with MS and the MS Society welcomes this research. LDN is not licensed for the treatment of MS in the UK.
Side effects (including insomnia and vivid dreams) were rare, and described as minor and transient. Baseline erythrocyte sedimentation rate predicted over 80 of the variance in drug response. Individuals with higher sedimentation rates (indicating general inflammatory processes) had the greatest reduction of symptoms in response.

Research has shown the LDN attaches to the opioid receptors, temporarily blocking endorphin attachment. By blocking the endorphin receptors for a short period of time, the body increases it endorphin production and produces the pain-relieving and immune system modulating effects.
Low dose naltrexone for treatment of pain. Abstract referenced. Article in Danish. Younger J, Mackey S. Pain medicine. 2009 May-Jun;10(4 663-72. "Fibromyalgia Symptoms Are Reduced by Low-Dose Naltrexone: A Pilot Study." Younger J, et al. Researchers say results are best in people with higher sedimentation rates, which indicates an inflammatory response in the body. (A high sed rate could indicate an overlapping condition as it's not typically elevated in fibromyalgia.) Results also indicate that the drug is well tolerated.

Some evidence suggests that LDN works as an anti-inflammatory in the central and peripheral nervous systems, possibly by limiting the activity of specialized cells called microglia. Research also suggests that LDN may help normalize the immune system, which may be why it appears to help.
