Low-dose naltrexone is used in the treatment of auto-immune diseases, cancer, autism, and thyroid disease. Naltrexone is commercially available in only a 50mg tablet. However, low dose naltrexone (LDN) therapy is usually prescribed as 0.5 mg to 4.5 mg per day, adjusted to the correct dose depending on the patient's response. Your pharmacist uses naltrexone powder from FDA approved facilities to formulate individualized dosing based on a prescription order.
How Can Compounds Help?
Naltrexone retains moisture and is classified as a hygroscopic drug, therefore needing professional management to ensure proper effectiveness. Your expert pharmacist will use an excipient that helps resist moisture absorption to provide the stability needed for proper efficacy.
Low-dose naltrexone is compounded in different dosage forms:
- Transdermal creams
- And more, based on patient needs
If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease or cancer and are looking for support, low dose naltrexone may benefit you. Discuss with your physician today whether LDN is right for you. We'll work with your doctor to determine the best LDN compounded prescription for you.
