Do I Need to Space Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Thyroid Medicine and will Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) cure POTS?

Why should we take LDN an hour from thyroid? I've been taking both at bedtime and haven't noticed a problem.  I like patients to separate everything from their thyroid to take their thyroid on their own to get the best absorption of their thyroid medication. Now if you've been doing this for years, then I normally tell you if your labs are fine then just keep doing what you're always doing because if all of a sudden you change, your labs might slightly change. If that's how you've been doing it forever and your thyroid labs are perfect I would just keep doing what you're doing. If you end up, they say, something like your thyroid isn't working as well, then I would try to take it alone with a glass of water first thing in the morning.

I lined myself up for this one, didn't I?  Hyperbaric plus LDN cures POTS? I don't think I quite said that. Still, in fact, I think in my experience so far, I'm really quite surprised about how many people have a very rapid resolution of their POT symptoms when they've started on LDN and tried the hyperbolic chamber. I don't really know why, but I do know there was a paper published on it which, if I can, I will send to you to Sue, the patient asking the question.
