    Although this small study was in 2006 it's interesting that LDN can be of help with IBS.

    I've used Low Dose Naltrexone for six months now. I was in the Stanford Phase II LDN for Fibromyalgia Clinical Trial last year. It does help a lot. I was on 4.5 mg and am now going down to 3 mg. I felt great for 3 months and it took about a month for me to start feeling good. I felt about 80% recovered. The last two months it hasn't been working as well and Dr. Younger at Stanford suggested I go down on my dosage as sometimes there is a buildup of naltrexone which causes too much of an opiate blockade preventing it from working correctly on the opiate receptors. I'd recommend LDN to anyone who's suffering with these diseases. I've been dx with CFS, fibromyalgia, & IBS. LDN is the most effective thing I've tried since I got really sick 3 years ago.

    Hi Tamrakat
    Wow. That's great that you got so much help.
    Has it helped specifically for IBS? or was it just overall general help. Could you post your story with LDN on the LDN thread which is in the General Treatment Section.

    If you don't mind I'll post your response here on the LDN thread.

    Best wishes
