Can You Help Educate my Doctor on Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)?

I have a hard time getting my doc to learn about LDN. Can you help me get him to a starting place? 

Yes and no. I love speaking with providers and helping them understand the idiosyncrasies behind Low Dose Naltrexone. A lot of times they just Google Naltrexone and all they see is the 50 to 300 mg doses. And that's just not the same.

It's a hormetic drug. It works so much differently at tiny doses than it does at big doses. So that's just not a thing.

So I am open to speaking with providers anytime. You can send a message through the research trust. You can find me on my LDN Research email, which is So you can find me that way. 

I'm happy to talk to providers. There is a lot of information on the LDN Research website to help with that.

Sometimes talking with a colleague is helpful. The three books are phenomenal and have always been helpful.

We'll do our absolute best to answer any questions that are necessary. I will say the hardest thing for doctors to wrap their head around is that individualized dosing seems very hard. It seems literally, it's like they get bogged down in, “oh my gosh, I don't know how to do that”. Or, “this is going to take up so much time that we're, we're going to get way behind”. 

And that's where working with a very good compounding pharmacy comes in, we can do the heavy lifting for them, we can help dial in the right dose for the patient. We can help with follow up, we can help with dosage form changes if necessary. And we're happy to do that.

There are a lot of compounding pharmacists that will help with all of the above.

The LDN Research Trust guides are also very useful, they can be found here.
