My massage therapist and friend is using this drug and has found it to be a miracle drug for him. He has back issues and fibromyalgia. While he used to have to drag himself out of bed before, now he feels like he wants to leap out of bed and say yahoo!

I have been doing research on it and other drug options and it seems like a very viable drug with little side effects. The one that impacts men could actually be a positive for us ladies! ;}

He is very informed medically and not one to take medications easily so I consider him very creditable. Has anyone else used this drug? If so, could you share your experiences? If not, you may want to research it.

I am going to talk to my pain management doctor about it. Check it out for yourself so see if it is an option.

  • Hi Wendy,

    I tried LDN a few years ago for my spine-pain and my FM pain.

    Sadly, it didn't do anything for me, but I am a couple standard deviations
    off the bell curve :) (Mr. Outlier!)

    I have read of others that did benefit!
