I’ve been on Low Dose Naltrexone now for almost two months. During the first month, I felt extremely tired, almost from the day I started it. At the end of the month I reduced the dose to almost half, and the tiredness went away. Not only that, but I was out of relapse (something that had been on its way to happening around the time I started the LDN, in fact I suspect the LDN dosage may have been the reason the relapse didn’t end sooner). I tried going up again by a much smaller amount and immediately felt tired again. So I’m back to my very small dose of LDN. I don’t know if it’s doing something, and my jury will be out until a year or so passes. I do know that the side effects are manageable at this dosage, a very good thing. Additionally, I continue to not get colds, etc, and generally seem to heal very quickly (I sliced my foot open and healed in record time). I will be interested to see what comes of this in the next year.
