  1. Hi Alex,
    Yes, I am still taking LDN! I have been taking it for 6 years and it has been very beneficial for me, especially for my “non-motor” symptoms…like PD fatigue (gone), anxiety (gone for the most part), handwriting (normal), voice (normal). It has also allowed me to keep my Carbidopa/Levadopa doses to a minimum. When I was first diagnosed with PD in 2008, it was recommended that I take 3 – 25/100mg of C/L per day. Today, after 7 years, I am still taking 3 doses per day every 3 hours, however, my dosage has changed from 1 tablet 3 times a day to 1.5 tablets 3 times a day – which gives me 9 hours of “on time”. I do not need to take C/L at night for sleeping. No one looking at me today would know I have PD when I am on my C/L and LDN. It is very important where you get your LDN formulated, however. You will find a list of approved LDN Compounding Pharmacies at http://www.ldninfo.org. I get mine filled at Skips’ Pharmacy in Boca Raton, Fl. although I live in Washington State. Skip is very knowledgeable about LDN and will help answer questions for you regarding LDN. His prices are also the best I have found – about $35. for a one month supply. I get my rx of LDN from my Neurologist (who after 6 years of taking LDN is very impressed with my lack of PD progression! She is so pleased with my lack of disease progression that she now gives me a one year prescription of LDN and I only see her once a year). The website that I gave you has lots of great information about LDN for you and your doctor. My starting dose of LDN was 3 mg. After about a year or so I had my dosage increased to the maximum recommended dosage of 4.5mg, which I still take today every night before bed. The only contraindication with LDN is that you cannot take any Opiate pain meds with LDN. I take LDN will all other prescription meds and targeted supplements with no adverse affects. LDN also keeps my immune system at it’s peak performance. I have not had a cold, flu or even a sniffle since I started taking it (and I have never had a flu shot). Please let me know if you have any other questions I can answer for you! Lexie
