Hello again â€“ after a couple of months, just though Iâ€™d check in with an update before the silly season really swings into action.
I started on LDN 1.5 mg nightly, increased it by 0.5 mg each week until 3 mg which I stayed on for two weeks, 3.5 mg for two weeks, and am currently on 4 mg, due to take the final step to 4.5 mg next week. I have had no side effects whatsoever and to date itâ€™s all been very positive. First thing I noticed was an improvement in mild bladder issues, urinary hesitancy and at times incomplete emptying of bladder. I no longer need to get up during the night to go to the toilet. However, best of all is has been the huge improvement in sleep. After over a decade of struggling with mid-phase insomnia, I canâ€™t tell you how good it is to sleep through the night and wake feeling refreshed. My thinking seems clearer, memory is improved, â€œword-huntingâ€ less of a problem and there is a noticeable reduction in fatigue although I still tend to wilt by the end of the day. So as â€œbut_a_dreamâ€ commented, for anyone who is ineligible for funded drugs in New Zealand, LDN might be worth considering and at a fraction of the cost.
Hope you all have a great Christmas.
