Narcotics & Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)
A Common question that our expert pharmacists get asked is Can narcotic pain relievers be used while on LDN? The answer is No. The effects of narcotics will be blocked by LDN. If a patient has developed any degree of narcotic dependence, LDN may cause withdrawal symptoms, some of which can be extremely uncomfortable or dangerous. Careful consideration should be given to those cases before initiating LDN. We have worked with pain management specialists that have weaned patients off of narcotic analgesics while titrating up LDN therapy. Please contact our New Jersey Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Experts.
