What is a Starting Dose of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for an Infant?
Can you use LDN orally for a six month old infant and if so how much is a typical starting dose? This depends on what the condition is that is being treated. Normally for an infant we would start at a much lower dose.
If the dose is taken orally you can crush the tablets or open them and add them to pureed food, but dosing really depends on what is being treated. Children usually start their dosing at .1 milligram. but it really depends on what we're treating and what's happening with that patient. Dr Brian Udell, is very very good at working with patients in infancy. He has authored a chapter in the first LDN book about using LDN in children.
