Question: Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

Wondering if any dr's have had experience with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN ). I know many crohns patients are getting prescriptions from sources other than GI's and having great results. Wondering why the GI community is not on board wth LDN?

Answer

I personally don't have experience prescribing it because I am not confident that the benefits outweigh the risks associated with it. The limited research on it likely hasn't given the medical community the confidence to do additional research on it.
