What is Low Dose Naltrexone?

While normal doses of Naltrexone are used to treat opioid addictions, low dosages can be used to treat chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, inflammation and more.

Low dose Naltrexone attaches to opioid receptors in the brain and temporarily blocks endorphins from attaching to them, signaling your body to increase endorphin production. Because endorphins are our bodies' natural pain relievers and are known for helping regulate the immune system, those with chronic pain and autoimmune disorders find relief after taking LDN.

The key to success in using LDN is an understanding that optimal dosing is patient specific and not dependent on a set protocol.  Some patients find success very quickly, while others need to try a variety of dosing strategies. Therefore, it is critical to work with a provider or a compounding pharmacy like Melrose Pharmacy to ensure success with LDN.

NOTE: Because LDN is an opioid receptor blocker, caution should be taken when prescribing LDN to patients who are taking opioid-type pain medications such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Fentanyl.
