Pradeep Chopra, MD - Chronic Pain, Opioids and LDN (2016 Conference) (LDN, low dose naltrexone)
Dr. George Schatz who's an MD from Tuscan in Arizona shares his experience with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
Opioids (narcotics) have been used for many years. It’s counter-intuitive to think that a drug like naltrexone which blocks the effect of opioids can help manage chronic pain. We do have some understanding that LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) helps with autoimmune conditions.
Naltrexone is a primary mu receptor antagonist and may also have an effect on delta and kappa receptors. The recommended dose for treatment of opiate and alcohol addiction is between 50 and 100 mg per day. It is available as naltrexone hydrochloride, a 50 mg tablet and is administered on a daily basis.
