Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) gives me headaches and insomnia, should I try to increase the dose anyway?
A sufferer of chronic fatigue syndrome takes 0.5 mg of LDN. Higher doses seem to give her headaches and insomnia. She has less fatigue and brain fog on 0.5 mg, so she's quite happy to stick to this dose but wants to know; "Do you think I should try to increase the dose at all costs?".
Absolutely not. Some people find that they can creep up gently from 0.5 to 0.6, 0.7, or 0.8, and gauge whether or not we're getting improvements in your symptoms. In reality, what you're telling us here is that you're getting great symptom control at 0.5 mg. Why change?
