Hi - a ND is a Naturalpathic Dr. My ND can also write prescriptions like a regular Dr. I have lost faith with Western Medicine-so many side effects! while on LDN, no relapses (and it's been 3 1/2 years).Also she does acupuncture and I am getting relief from that.

I and Susan took it for about 3 years but when She ended up with many more lesions starting and I had one that was active for over a year we had to try something else and now on nothing but symptom control. (pain meds as needed, supplements and vits..cost was another reason we had to quit.. $150 a 90 day supply for both of us.Not a lot but it was more than two on SSDI can pay comfortably

I tried LDN for a while some years ago with no discernible difference, but it's different for each person. I don't recall experiencing any side effects, give it a try.

Awesome! My GP and Neurologist both would not write me a prescription for LDN. They told me there was not enough research on it to use for MS so therefore they didn't feel they could support it.Personally I think it is because it's an inexpensive drug to manufacture therefore not a lot of money can be made on it.However, my Neurologist was all to happy to write me a prescription that costs 100x the amount (LDN at $20.00 a month vs Copaxine at $1,800.00 a month). I have since relied on my Naturalpathic Dr. for support and treatment.Besides I really dislike the side effects that come with many of the MS drugs.

My nuero actually writes my script for LDN after seeing my progress after 3 years. He said "if isn't broke, don't fix it, I will continue to write it."
