Here's something crazy!  I haven't posted in over 2 years!  Well, I'm still plugging along with no attacks to date (knock on wood).  I take LDN now, I was getting occasional spins.  Low Dose Naltrexone works great for me.

I have to say, when it comes to my health, I'm a control freak.  I went to my general practitioner, and asked to get LDN prescribed, so they could keep track of what I was doing.  I told her I could buy it on the Internet, and dilute it myself, but would rather have the compounding pharmacy do it for me.  She said she would if my neurologist okayed it.  He wanted me to start at 4.5mg....NO!  This sets you up for failure if you want to try this med.!  It causes wierd dreams, some times nightmares, I just found the dreams freaky!!  Plus your body needs to get use to it because it also makes you sleepy.  

If you want to try this, I recommend having it compounded with acidophilus at a 1.5 mg dose.  After a week on 1.5mg, start taking 2 capsules, which is 3.0mg.  If your still feeling aches and spins, up to the 4.5 after another week.  This is the top dose.  Many people take 4.5 on a daily basis.  I take 3.0, because 4.5 made me stiff in the joints and fatigued in the day.  Take it just before bed.  Between 9 and midnight.  

Google LDN forum to get info from the LDN pro boards .  It's a great forum!  So, I'm also taking a new drug to gain weight. That's on my other blog.  Hopefully after gaining a few pounds (20lbs. Is my goal.). I'll be able to work out and get stronger.  Hope this info helps someone.  Remember to fight!  Smile often, and never give up!  God is watching over you, make him proud!
