    Would like to get a thread going about Low Dose Naltrexone. Seems like a winner after researching it some today. Please report your experiences with it, good, or bad. What do you know about it, etc....

    I find this very interesting. As a part of learning this stuff I spend a lot of time reading about this, ondansetron and other drugs that Mr Peat has mentioned.

    Someone said to me that it gives your body a break for a while to allow it to reset, time for hormones to normalise. I was told it was like being in a "Bubble" where outside stress suddenly doesn't cause a stress response. If that is true I imagine that it would have little benefit if stress hormones are not elevated or if you respond positively to stress situations. But most people do likely have unnaturally elevated stress hormones even if they aren't aware of it.

    I haven't used it but have heard good things about it too and for the most part negligible side effects with such a low dose.

    KB, that was Peatarian who said, I quoted it up above.

    kiran, are you still taking LDN? How long till you noticed the libido increase? Any other positive or negative effects?

    Still taking it, I noticed it after a couple days maybe.

    I think the other effects from LDN are somewhat subtle.

    I really need to try this stuff. Going off of what KB said, I really think it would give my body the break it needs.

    I've been experimenting with LDN for a few days. Some of those days have been pretty good, but no obvious effects yet. I am big and tend to be unresponsive to medications unless I up the dose a bit.

    Are you sourcing it through a doctor or can you get without a script in USA?

    Yes, I just went and checked it out.


    I thought my Dr was going to be helpful, but it looks like that is not the case.

    What is the difference between N and LDN?

    Nothing chemically. LDN is just basically using a really small dose of N.

    Interesting sites, Charlie.
    One I liked was this long one, below, from the "Low Dose Naltrexone for Longevity" site.

    http://www.longecity.org/forum/topic/18073-low-dose-naltrexone-for-longevity/page__st__210

    The poster, "golgi", discusses his theory that even the "low" doses commonly suggested
    may be way too high.
    He links to an article he says substantiates his idea
    (you may need to go to the website to get a clickable link to that PDF article).

    Actually, my last post will make more sense
    if the following post is read first--same poster.
    The previous post was a follow-on to this one:

    Yep narouz, golgi stood out the most to me and I plan on doing super duper low doses if I can get my hands on some.

    Here is the PDF you are talking about:
