So, what is LDN?

LDN stands for Low Dose Naltrexone

Naltrexone is a drug that was approved by the FDA in 1985 to treat opiate dependencies. It is marketed under different trade names and it comes as regular and sustained release form. Naltrexone is commonly used at a dose of 50mg–100mg daily for treating opiate dependency.

The term ‘LDN’ refers to the use of Naltrexone at doses below 10mg per day. Naltrexone exhibits novel and paradoxical effects when administered as these low doses.

The information in this article will give you

  • some of the history behind the discovery of this “miracle drug”,
  • some of the stories telling and showing you the miracles this drug brought into the lives of so many suffering people
  • some of the research done to explain and support the use of LDN for so many ailments
  • some of the books written about LDN, etc.

Bernard Bihari, MD, was the discoverer of the clinical effects of LDN in humans. In his groundbreaking clinical trial of patients with HIV/AIDS at Downstate Medical Center in 1985-86, Dr. Bihari discovered the significant effectiveness of low dose naltrexone in protecting the battered immune systems of those who were infected. With that knowledge, he entered private practice to counter the then untreatable disease.

Since this discovery, numerous laboratory and animal studies have been carried out to investigate the novel effects of LDN in cancer and autoimmune disorders. In 2007, results of the first clinical trial using LDN for Crohn’s Disease were published (Smith JP et al. Am J Gastroenterol. 2007;102(4):820-8), followed by publication of a study on multiple sclerosis in 2008 (Gironi M et al. Multiple Sclerosis. 2008;14(8):1076-83) and fibromyalgia in 2009 (Younger J and Mackey S. Pain Med. 2009;10(4):663-72).
