Getting Low Dose Naltrexone in Wisconsin
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is an exciting treatment option for multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, cancer, central nervous system disorders, and other conditions in which patients benefit from the immune system enhancing effects of LDN. MDCustomRx is the most reliable source for low dose naltrexone in Wisconsin, as we follow the most stringent standards of potency testing for all compounded pharmaceuticals.
The commonly available form of Naltrexone comes in 50 mg, the dosage appropriate for blocking the effects of opiate based drugs, which is the FDA approved purpose. Low dose naltrexone has been found to be effective in boosting immune system functioning in doses of 1.7 to 4.5 mg, but is most likely at least several years away from FDA approval for this purpose. There is a substantial and growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of low dose naltrexone, as well as thousands of individuals who have benefited from its use for a variety of conditions. It is perfectly legal and ethical for your physician to prescribe LDN from a qualified Wisconsin compounding pharmacy such as MDCustomRx who can produce the appropriate dose of naltrexone without any time release fillers or other chemicals which would reduce the efficacy of treatment. The video below provides great information on how LDN works, the key points are provided as text for your reference:
Low Dose Naltrexone - How It Works Video Script
|You’ve read about Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), have seen stories about it and all that it does. From all of the information it’s difficult to sort out what might be true and what isn’t . Some of the things you’ve heard are actually pretty ridiculous. This video for MedInsight Research Institute well help you sort out the correct information and help you understand how LDN works.|
The information in this video is based on the scientific work of the discovers of LDN - Dr. Ian S. Zagon and Dr. Patricia J. McLaughlin of Hershey Medical Center Penn State University
Imagery showing cell division - All agree that normal regulation of the division of cells is a good thing. When cell division gets out of control we call it cancer and several other names. That’s when doctors and patients want a method to return the cell division to normal.
Imagery showing Opiod Growth Factor - Produced naturally, an endorphin called OGF or Opioid Growth Factor keeps cell growth in control.
An endorphin is a naturally occurring chemical in your body.
OGF is an endorphin that’s produced by every cell in the body. OGF binds to a special receptor known as Image showing Opiod Growth Factor Receptor - OGFR or Opioid Growth Factor Receptor. OGFR is present on the surface of every type of cell. When OGFR binds to and OGF Receptor a cascade of events occurs that helps to control cell growth. It’s vital that OGF is first produced by the cells and that it then binds to the OGF Receptor. If it’s not produced or it does not bind to the receptors your body won’t work as it’s supposed to.
OGF produced in blood cells that control the immune system regulates the growth of these cells and keeps the immune system balanced and functioning properly.
Imagery showing Naltrexone effect on the OGF - When Naltrexone binds to an OGF Receptor it blocks the receptor preventing OGF from binding there. Resulting in the affected cells becoming deficient in OGF.

How Does LDN Work?
There is a growing body of evidence that the body’s endorphins (naturally occurring opiods) have a critical role in regulating immune system function. Administering low dose naltrexone between 9 and 11 pm blocks opioid receptors for several hours during sleep, prolonging up-regulation of vital elements of the immune system by causing an increase in endorphin and enkephalin production, enhancing immune system functioning.
