Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

You probably haven’t heard of LDN but it saves lives at a fraction of the cost for high priced pharmaceutical drugs.

LDN is one of the most important medical discoveries of the 20th century. It is the least expensive and most versatile of the treatments of many illnesses.

LDN is an inexpensive nightly pill, whose main side effect is vivid dreams. But it is “off-patent” since it has been on the market for many years. Any pharmacist can make the compound, which has to be mixed correctly.

Dr. David Gluck’s LDN website at http:www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/ tells the use of LDN and how it has saved many lives.

LDN is a narcotic blocker which was approved by the FDA in the 1980s for treating drug and alcohol addiction. Neurologist Bernard Bihari, MD found that in small doses is helped the immune system restore a person’s health.

The cost?

Doctors most often prescribe for MS patients–C.R.A.B. drugs or Tysabri. Avonex has gone from $10,000 a year to $30,600. Betaseron went from $10,000 to $32,616. Copaxone from $10,000 to $33,804.

We could go on but you get the idea.

Now the cost of LDN runs from $25 – $40 a month. If we take the high end of $40 a month that’s $480 a year.

If the government wasn’t controlled partly by Big Pharma we could cut the budget deficit considerably. The government covers the cost of these expensive drugs but not the cost of the LDN drug.

By the way these expensive drugs only work some of the time. LDN works 85-90 percent of the time. Why not start with the best?
