Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) may well be the most important therapeutic breakthrough in over fifty years. It provides a new, safe and inexpensive method of medical.
Some are trying to undergo a home detox, but quit when withdrawals become unbearable. Some start going to a 12 Steps Meetings, but keep thinking of drugs and alcohol all the time.
If it does not, the dose can be lowered from 4.5mg to 3 mg or timing may be changed to a morning dosage. What should I watch out for? LDN should not be taken with opioid agonists (narcotic medication).I literally can t say enough about.
Naltrexone Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist that is prescribed to treat opiate dependence. It has also been successfully used in the treatment of alcohol dependency Opioid antagonists bind to the opioid receptors in the brain and blocks them.However, the implant has not been approved.

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.

The present data suggest that ultra-low doses of opioid receptor antagonists may provide a potent strategy to modulate seizure susceptibility, especially in conjunction with very low doses of opioids.

Abstract Significant potentiation of analgesic effects of opioids can be achieved through selective blockade of their stimulatory effects on intracellular signaling pathways by ultra-low doses of opioid receptor antagonists. However, the generality and specificity of this interaction is not well understood.
RESULTS : Ultra-low-dose NTX (5 ng/kg) blocked the CPP to morphine (5 mg/kg) and the CPA to withdrawal from chronic morphine (5 mg/kg, for 7 days). Coadministration of ultra-low-dose NTX (30 pg/kg) also blocked the CPA to withdrawal from chronic oxycodone administration (3 mg/kg, for.

RATIONALE : Ultra-low-dose opioid antagonists enhance opiate analgesia and attenuate tolerance and withdrawal. OBJECTIVES : To determine whether ultra-low-dose naltrexone (NTX) coadministration alters the rewarding effects of opiates or the aversive effects of opiate withdrawal.
Systemic administration of ultra-low doses of naltrexone (100 fg/kg-10 ng/kg) significantly potentiated the anticonvulsant effect of morphine at 0.5 mg/kg while higher degrees of opioid receptor antagonism blocked this effect. Moreover, inhibition of opioid-induced excitatory signaling by naltrexone (1 ng/kg) unmasked a strong anticonvulsant effect.
