Susan from Canada was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1987 when she was 21. Her neurologist prescribed her Capoxone which she took for two years, that didn’t help. The next two years she took Betaseron which was also ineffective. Then she was prescribed a new chemotherapy drug which the neurologist said they’d had good results with - that caused terrible side effects and Susan had to come off it after another two years of unsuccessful treatment. All the while her MS was progressing and she was feeling lost as her neurologist basically told her that she was now on her own.
This is when Susan started to do her own research and she found out about Low Dose Naltrexone. Her neurologist refused to give her a prescription but her regular GP did so she started LDN 9 years ago.
Susan feels that Low Dose Naltrexone has slowed the progression of the disease and she sleeps a lot better but she hasn’t had the success that others have stated but she’s still grateful that she found a drug that would help somewhat without causing side effects that she couldn’t cope with.
