We become partners with you and your doctor to help you try to get back to your own best health. We work by the same principles as Linda Elsegood and the LDN Research Trust believe in. We educate patients and physicians when needed since we have so much experience helping with various patient cases and seeing so many positive results.
How T&C Compounding Pharmacists Work with Physicians
It really does take an experienced pharmacist and experienced physician working together to get to the sweet spot with dosing for the specific condition. It’s not as simple as starting a titration at 1.5mg and then going all the way to 4.5. We have seen situations where the patient gets full pain relief at 3mg and must stop, but if they keep going, they will lose the results.Get Physician Referral
Educating Physicians About Advances
This is the dosing that most physicians are aware of, however, over the past couple of years, the dosing has been greatly expanded. Many physicians are not aware that when we have patients on chronic opioid therapy we will sometimes start the dose as low as 0.001mg (1mcg) and have witnessed chronic pain patients receive relief on doses as low as 0.002mg (2mcg) daily. We have also seen where someone will titrate up too quickly for their body and miss the positive results. Depending on the disease, we may want to start much lower. And…when dealing with opioids, it is critical to work with a pharmacy such as T&C Compounding who has experience with titration protocols for both ultra-low dose naltrexone and very low dose naltrexone. T&C Compounding works with some of the most experienced pain physicians out there and we are currently working on partnering with them for various clinical trials; this is very exciting.
Truly Customized for Individual Needs
We have worked with doctors to look at what the patient is on and we help slowly wean off the opioid while starting with either very low dose naltrexone or ultra-low dose naltrexone (microgram dosing). Then, we help slowly add-back LDN into a customized LDN titration and then offer suggestions to complement this therapy depending on the situation. Many practitioners are not aware of these new dosing protocols and Town & Country is able to educate them on these protocols and assist them with their patients.

LDN Research Trust & Pain Experts
One of the primary reasons Linda Elsegood of the LDN Research Trust is traveling to the United States is to film documentaries with prominent pain physicians regarding the use of LDN to both assist patients in weaning off of opioids and also as an alternative therapy in pain management in place of opioids. Town & Country will be traveling with Linda Elsgood and Dr. David Yeazel, A trust board member to participate in the filming of these physicians.
- Dr. Samyadev Datta, The Center For Pain Management, Hackensack NJ
- Dr. Neel Mehta, Weil Cornell Pain Management, New York City NY
- Dr. Pradeep Chopra, Brown Medical School, Rhode Island
We will be discussing and collaborating with these prominent physicians regarding all of the new research concerning LDN and how it can be utilized in chronic pain. Chronic pain conditions for which LDN has been shown to be an effective, non-opioid, treatment option for patients experiencing moderate to severe pain, inclusive of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Fibromyalgia, Neuropathies, back pain, and autoimmune disease. In addition, LDN’s unique ability to control pain in opioid-dependent patients, and assist in the tapering and elimination of opioids, will be reviewed. A comprehensive review of current literature will be discussed, its mechanism of action, as well as the clinical experience gained from the treatment of thousands of LDN patients, to form the clinical indication specific dosing guidance and titration protocols which are essential to achieving therapeutic success for patients.

Testimonials: Patient Success Stories
Example of a Patient that has Been on Chronic Opioid Therapy for 18 Years: Hello, I am sending a quick email because gratefully I am getting relief of my pain already. Sometimes quick can be frightening when this has been going on with minimal relief, even with an intrathecal pump for 18 years. First, let me tell you that with the high dose of my pump my PRN MSIR 30 mg recently had almost been cut in half from a monthly dose of 240 pills to 150 pills. Over the last two months, I was 2-4 days short at the end of the month. I just wasn’t able to get thru the day with the decrease. At the same time, my dose of fentanyl patches, 300mcg/every 2days had been discontinued. The old fluid filled patches were not available, I did not get any relief from the newer flat patches. This is why my meds were changed to fentanyl in my pump. That was just to make sure you knew the reasons for the recent changes. I started the ULDN on February 27, 2019. In the first week, the changes are amazing. I have rarely looked for pain meds, twice actually, I took a 30 mg MSIR in the evening after a busy day. I can’t remember the last time I had a busy day! I didn’t last on my feet, because of pain for 30 minutes without needing rest and having to take a break. The ULDN already had made a difference. I am now more than 50 pills ahead with the MSIR for the month, instead of being behind.
Example of a Patient Suffering Autoimmune Conditions: I have, since the age of 50, suffered from several auto-immune conditions: Hashimoto’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and the very rare disease, CIDP – Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Poly Radical Neuropathy **. CIDP was one of the most challenging experiences of my life. I went through the only two options of treatment for this chronic disease – IVIG Infusions, which did nothing at all to help me regain my reflexes and ability to walk. The 2nd course of treatment was mass doses of Prednisone – 80 mg per day to start. This brought back my ability to walk, but the side effects of the prednisone were horrible. I have gone through quite a lot in the past 15 years, many different Doctors, medications, both traditional Western Medicine and Holistic Medicine. In January 2016, I started going to the Manhattan Integrative Medicine Institute My doctor conducted very extensive blood work and thru that and other testing concluded that my thyroid was not functioning right, even though my previous Doctors said my levels were fine. He fine-tuned my immune system through many supplements and leveled out my hormones. There were highs and lows. There were many trials and tribulations that we both went through, but I believed in my Doctor and stuck it out. Everything seemed to change when I started taking LDN at 1.5 milligrams and very slowly worked my way up to 4.5 milligrams every night at bedtime. I truly believe that LDN changed my life. You must be patient, but over time I began to feel well again “an overall feeling” of wellness. My lower back pain and heaviness in my legs is now gone. I have energy again. I have my mental clarity back. For the longest time, I woke up in the morning not wanting to get out of bed. I was depressed because I knew I wasn’t well and did not feel well. I truly believe (let’s just say I know) that everything is better now because of LDN. I wake up happy. I have my life back again. Every day is a blessing and a miracle and I do believe LDN is that miracle for me.
