Low dose naltrexone (LDN) appears to be safe for patients with multiple sclerosis even when taken long term. LDN has been studied as a potential treatment for cancer, as well as Crohn’s disease, and fibromyalgia, and each of the trials has been shown to be non-toxic. Furthermore, “At least three clinical trials have been published in which LDN was found to increase the quality of life of MS patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) or secondary progressive MS and significantly improve mental health,” say the researchers. After 10 years they found that patients diagnosed with RRMS who were receiving only LDN experienced no significant adverse effects. Additionally, the authors report LDN “does not appear to increase MRI activity or alter regular blood tests of liver, kidney and hematopoietic function.”
