Has anyone tried LDN (low dose naltrexone) for their fibromyalgia?

It seems that there is so much written on the topic of LDN as a treatment for fibromyalgia and that it has helped a lot of people.  Has anyone on this forum tried it with any success?  Please let me know!

If you haven't heard of it, this article speaks about it and gives a lot of information

Thanks everyone!

    Hi some years ago, I was using the MS support group and there was a lot of talk about LDN helping with a variety of issues eg bladder urgency, poor sleep, pain. It wasn`t available generally, but a private prescription was available if your neuro or MS nurse wrote a letter agreeing for MSers to use it.

    I did this. It cost around £21 a month...cant recall for sure....it was obtained from one place only....a pharmacy in Scotland.

    So, I tried it. It calmed my bladder and helped me sleep better. But the advantages were short lived..just a few weeks, so I stopped it.

    I have no knowledge of it helping with fibro.

    Are you getting on from your neuro or GP on scripts? Hope it helps x

    I am getting it on script from my GP which is lucky because from what i understand not many people can get it from theirs.
    It is suppost to help Fibro.. well its in the list of conditions it can help.. that and ME which i also have. I am due to start shortly.. the goal posts moved slightly and its due to start on Monday or Tuesday
