Hi, I've been taking (for several years) a number of meds for autistic spectrum disorder with sleep disorder and fatigue. They work wonderfully without any side effects. They are:
Dextrostat 15mg, before rising.
Campral 666mg, before rising.
Klonopin 0.5mg, 10am.
Dextrostat 5mg, noonish.
Campral 666mg, noonish.
Klonopin 0.5mg, 3pm.
Remeron 30mg, 2 hours before bedtime.
Klonopin 1mg, 2 hours before bedtime.
Several months ago my doc prescribed 4.5mg Naltrexone immediately before going to sleep. It increases my already increased dreaming from Remeron (not a bad thing). It also seems to improve (my already drastically improved) ability to get up in the morning. My doctor didn't specifically state why he prescribed LDN, but gave me a photocopy of a literature review.
I have had two recent malignant melanoma surgeries on lower back. The first and largest lesion was 12.4mm x 0.5mm, stage T1a. No radiation or chemo required.
Do you know if LDN would be theoretically indicated or contraindicated for this type of cancer?
Thanks in advance.
> The usual dose of naltrexone for fibromyalgia is 4.5mg,taken between 8 pm and midnight. Some do better on 3,3.5 or 4 mg.See www.lowdosenaltrexone.org. for details. I have not found Lyrica to be of much use to most of those I tried it on.
