Joe and Teresa Graedon answer readers’ letters. This week: low-dose naltrexone for relieving pain; aspirin and heart attacks; blood-pressure medications and gout.
This summer my doctor put me on low-dose naltrexone. It is not an opioid.
Medical oversight is essential for people switching from opioids to low-dose naltrexone. Not all doctors know about LDN, so it is essential to find a doctor who is experienced in prescribing this medicine. LDN has definitely helped me with my pain. I can even think and do activities. I have not noticed any side effects.
