What is Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)?

Naltrexone is a drug classified under the category of an opioid antagonist. As an opiate antagonist, naltrexone obstructs the process in which an opioid drug binds to its respective receptors. As a result of this impediment and barrier, the body responds with a boosted level of enkephalin and endorphin release. Hand in hand with these effects, comes a reduction in autoimmune mediators, less proliferation of inflammatory substances, and fewer occurrences of inflammation in the nerve cells.

Low Dose Naltrexone is a preferred therapy for pain and autoimmune issues. LDN can be administered as compounded capsules or compounded tablets.

Low doses of compounded naltrexone capsules and tablets are readily available from Precision Compounding Pharmacy and our pharmacists who have extensive knowledge of this therapy are readily available for LDN consultations.

Administration:

  • LDN is administered in capsule or tablet form and many different dosages. Low Dose Naltrexone is commonly started once daily, at 0.5 to 1.5mg. This is to allow the clinician to evaluate how the patient will respond. Side effects, as reported by patients, can often be prevented by the patient starting at a low dosage and increasing by 1mg per week until reaching 4.5mg.
  • It can be taken in the morning or at bedtime, dependent on side effects. Scientists assumed that because the majority of LDN’s assumed effects involved endorphins, it would be beneficial to take LDN at bedtime. This belief has fallen out of favor in the past five years as clinical experience shows that incidence of side effects is higher when LDN is taken at night.

Mechanism of Action:

  • Opiate antagonist (Levo Side)
  • Negative feedback which increases endorphins and opiate receptors
  • TLR (toll-like receptors) antagonist, Glial cell deactivation (dextro side)
  • Anti-proliferate effects
