In reply to Re: Look into low dose Naltrexone, posted by Lamdage22 on March 3, 2018, at 1:29:19

Hey friends,

i have taken 1.5 mg for two nights now. I get somewhat more vivid dreams and feel some sort of sedation. But nothing too crazy.

I was told to take 1,5mg for 4 weeks, 3mg for 4 weeks and then 4.5 mg. I dont want to do it more quickly than that.

How long on a dosage until i know if it will have a positive effect? 3 Months?

> i wonder if i can add alcohol to the liquid to avoid bacteria

There's no need to use alcohol as a preservative. If you keep the liquid LDN refrigerated, it will stay fresh for over a month.

I am holding onto LDN. Allergies seem to flare up a bit. It could be due to changes to the immune system. I may have lyme or some other infection. LDN helps this by boosting the immune system.

I have had a positive change. Mood feels brighter. I am not as lazy anymore. I am at 2.5 mg of Naltrexone.

I also take 225 mg of Lithium instead of 117.5 and i eat much healthier.

Hi Scott,

Most people take it shortly before going to bed. Here's some information about the ideal time to take it.

Hope these symptoms pass soon. They don't sound related to LDN.

Perhaps you could use a steroid nasal spray until it improves.

On the outside or inside? Some people get an itchy feeling within the ears at the same time as a nasal allergy. Obviously, if it's coming from an area of inflamed skin on your ear that's different.

Is it both ears? Any pain? Does it happen at same time as runny nose or typical allergy symptoms?

>what do you mean pain? Like joints&bones? no

Just meant... do you have any pain in your ears or hearing changes? Just because that would suggest something wrong in your ear rather than an allergy. Also, if you've been swimming or potentially got something in your ear, do get it looked at by your doctor.

If you have itching in both (not one) ears at the same time as allergy symptoms in your nose, it makes it likely that the itching is part of the allergic reaction.

As you know, it can be difficult to know the cause of allergies because it can easily be due to something you don't realise. You can try to eliminate allergens, but it can be difficult to eliminate everything.

Have you tried a steroid nasal spray from a pharmacy? Your nose is connected to the nasopharynx at the top/back, and the nasopharynx is connected to your inner ears on both sites. A steroid nasal spray can help a wide range of allergy symptoms in the upper airway, especially after a few days. I assume you can buy topical steroids like Beconase and Flonase nasal spray from a pharmacy in your country, like you can here. In some countries, you can also get newer steroid nasal sprays without a prescription eg. triamcinolone spray, mometasone spray (brands vary). Some people say these are nicer to use with a better smell etc.
