Yes and the next morning I started the day with a migraine.

Yes. My Pain Management Doctor started me on 3mg which made no difference at all. After a month we upped it to 4mg with little difference noted. We then increased it to 6mg. It has made a difference. I’m not limited to “moaning and groaning” all day any more. I’ve gone from living at a pain level of 9-10 daily to a 7-9 daily. I do take other medications for Fibro, plus I also have CRPS. I’ve had Fibro for 22 years so I’m not a newby to this struggle. I’ve been on the Naltrexone for 3 years.

Low dose Naltrexone worked wonderful for me… until i started having an allergic reaction to it. Severe itching, redness, rash that spreads from the patch out.  Hated to stop because it worked so well with controlling the pain and fatigue, but had to.

My doc started me on the regimen about 3 weeks ago. I am up to 3 mg of LDN. not seeing an improvement yet but don’t expect to for several more weeks and when I get to 4.5 mg.
