Sleep support with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)? It depends on what is causing the sleep disturbance.

First—were sleep issues present BEFORE initiating treatment?  

Are there other medications on board?  

Have you addressed other underlying health issues that might be implicated in your sleep disturbances?  

Often times we neglect good sleep hygiene, or there can be underlying issues impacting our sleep such as metabolic syndrome (blood sugar changes in the night) or stress response (cortisol changes in the night), or other hormonal issues like prostate or menopause that might be impacting sleep/wake cycles, etc.
