Is Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Meant for Long Term Use?
Is Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) a forever treatment for a patient or should it be used within a limited time frame? It's generally not unsafe to use LDN for long term and the times where we use it pretty much persistently would be say cancer patients. Also, people with autoimmunity tend use it as a persistent part of their treatment protocol. People with long COVID or spike protein damage or other issues that are getting better they could see if it may become not important.
The only way you know with those transient things, as we have seen with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ME and others, but long COVID is a good example where it's really helpful in the initial treatment protocol. The patient is getting better and it's one of the things that we taper off and take away and as long as they don't get worse it's done its job. However, if you have an underlying pathology it's not likely to leave like a cancer or autoimmunity. It's probably going to be a persistent part of your treatment.
