Low Dose Naltrexone


What is Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)?

Naltrexone was synthesized in 1963 as an orally active competitive opioid receptor antagonist. Naltrexone was approved by the FDA in 1984 for the treatment of opioid addiction. LDN refers to daily dosages of naltrexone that are approximately 1/10th of the typical opioid addiction treatment dosage.

Naltrexone blocks opiate drugs from binding to the opioid receptors, which can result in increased endorphin and enkephalin release. This results in reduced:

  1. Signaling and release of inflammatory substances,
  2. Nerve cell inflammation, and
  3. Autoimmune mediators.
