Naltrexone is a medication that has been FDA approved for decades to treat drug and alcohol dependence, but research has shown that in very small doses it can help the body work to improve many different medical conditions including chronic pain, autoimmune conditions, depression and much more!
Do you have Chronic Pain?
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is being used in a variety of chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, neuropathies, musculoskeletal pain and others. Studies show that LDN can help reduce inflammatory markers which are usually high if you have pain.
Current drug treatments for pain include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS-Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve), opioid pain medications (hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine), antidepressants and others. These treatments can be risky, carry side effects, be expensive or ineffective.
With its low side effects and low cost, LDN can be the better option if you suffer from chronic pain.
