Naltrexone-LDN AND ULDN
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Ultra Low Dose Naltrexone (ULDN) is quickly becoming a popular treatment for a wide variety of chronic pain conditions, including Arachnoiditis, fibromyalgia, and more. It also treats autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's, Addisons, etc. To see the full list, click here (page will open in new window). Naltrexone is commonly prescribed as an addiction medication used to treat opioid addiction, but at much lower doses it has been found to be an analgesia and anti-inflammatory. Many Arachnoiditis patients have good luck with LDN and ULDN.
Since LDN has become so popular, there are many resources on the internet. Here are just a few:
LDN Research Trust - The Low Dose Naltrexone Charity.
They also have a META (Facebook) group I suggest joining if you have questions and there are other great groups as well. You can find that group here: (20+) LDN Research Trust - Low Dose Naltrexone | Facebook
For ULDN I suggest joining (19) NOPE Non-Opiate Pain-relief Experiences. ULDN / Naltrexone & other options | Facebook
ULDN is more commonly taken with pain medications. ULDN is such a low dose it won't interfere with pain medication, but please join NOPE to learn more about the dosage and other particulars.
