> I'm new to this board and have been searching through older threads on LDN. I've been using it off and on since June '09. I can't take the 1.5 mg that is reported to be the minimally effective dose. In fact I just started back on it at .25mg every other night.
> I'm still fiddling with trying to find the right way to dose, but I'm not alone.
me 2 , similar with still fiddling and needing a way smaller dose, and intermittent-maybe until I get mor eused to it
Even at the 3mg dose I get greatly increased depression when I take it as it effects /until it wears off , anxiety too- I think but I havent taken as much lately. also can't sleep at night unitl it wears off, but then sleep very very deeply in morning- its midday now and I'm still reqlly wiped. But after it wears off and I've been on it for a few days it really does give me an increase in energy and I can wear thru the bush and not get tired- havent been able to do that in many years.
I was looking here as I was wondering how others cope with going on it.
It does really help with decrease in pain felt.. also I think it may work as they say, but I've only been fiddling-twice now, all I can say it defunutely causes a decrease in pain felt
I tried some ldn from India, and I couldn't titrate it in water as it didnt all dissolve and settled to bottom , I presume just the fillers but who knows. To be more sure of an even dose I just broken the tablet up- not precise as yet, but always less than 2mg or so (keep subdividing tablet).. then I took just a few grains on a finger sometimes! Not every day also.
Thinking of buying more accurate scales, but I can only get on ebay up to 1mg , which means, I presume it could be out by 0.5mg in measurement.(they don't specify).
PS Lar, I reckon you should look into this stuff, should help you re pain and considering some of your problems seem to have some sorta autoimmune/hormonal posiibility to them.. but if you do, take it really really tiny (less than 1mg) due to the depression reacytion as it works for those few hrs at nighttime..and just stay in bed after you take it... even if you do feel really depressed, and everything is worrying etc, it wears off
