HOMEMADE LOW DOSE NALTREXONE
There could be several reasons why some people may want to make their own LDN: Often their Doctors will not prescribe
LDN; Homemade LDN costs only $10/month; There are no Pharmacy mistakes in Homemade LDN; There are no capsule "filler"
problems and experiments can be conducted with different dose quantities.
The chemical we call Naltrexone is really the chemical Naltrexone Hydrochloride (C20H23NO4-HCl). It could be purchased
directly from Spectrum Chemicals for about $100 a gram but only by using a commercial account and in its pure form is too
difficult to measure in exact small quantities. The best source of Naltrexone, in order to prepare Homemade LDN doses, is the
50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone tablet made by Bristol-Myers Squibb and prescribed by Doctors for treatment of drug and alcohol
addictions. Each 50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone tablet can be made into 11 to 16 LDN doses depending on whether one takes a small
3mg dose or a larger 4.5mg dose.
How to acquire 50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone Tablets: Here are a few methods that have been reported by people on the
Histamine, LDN and Alternative MS Therapies Message Board:
They tell their Doctor the truth: They print out this WebPage and the WebPage LDN Brief Summary, highlight key areas and
give it to their Doctor and tell him they want the "ReVia" tablets in order to experiment with minuscule Naltrexone doses at
1/100th of FDA approved dosages. Hopefully, they get a "ReVia" Prescription.
They tell their Doctor a white lie: They tell their Doctor their medical condition has caused them to abuse drugs and alcohol and
they would like a Prescription for 50mg "ReVia" tablets to relieve their possible addiction.
They order 50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone Tablets legally without a prescription from a foreign country. Most people at the
Histamine, LDN Message Board currently prefer Internet Mexican Drug Stores which cost about $110 for a one year supply.
Any questions can be asked at the Message Board.
Methods you can use to make Low Dose Naltrexone Doses:
Liquid LDN (Easiest): Acquire some ml measuring equipment from the baby section of a Drug Store and a small bottle with a
screw-on cap. Put 50ml of water (distilled is best) and one 50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone tablet in the small bottle and let it dissolve
with a little time and shaking. Now each ml of water in that small bottle contains 1 mg of Naltrexone. At bedtime shake the
bottle, take a desired dose (no more than 4.5ml), chase it down with some water and store the small bottle in the refrigerator.
Some people have reported splitting the tablet in half and dissolving it in 25ml of water to assure freshness every week.
Measured LDN (Harder): Acquire a $3 hand held pill pulverizor at Walmart and a bag of Darice Craft Designer 7mm PONY
Beads 59cents from JoAnn Fabrics. Superglue one of these beads to end of a thin spatula, knife blade or flat toothpick and it
becomes a good measuring spoon for powdered "ReVia" Naltrexone. A scoop of this powder, that leaves the top inside edge of
the bead visible, contains 3mg of Naltrexone and a moderate (not heaping) scoop that covers the top bead edge contains 4.5mg
of Naltrexone. At bedtime, you take one desired scoop of "ReVia" Naltrexone powder and put it in a 1oz jar with water, shake it
up, drink it and chase it down with a little more water.
LDN in a capsule (Hardest): Some people take other supplements at bedtime and a measured amount of "ReVia" can be put into
another pill capsule. Open up a capsule taken at bedtime and deposit a measured amount of powder (using the method above) in
the small side of the capsule and close the capsule back up. Take the capsule with a glass of water. This method makes sure all
the LDN goes directly to the stomach without getting hung up in the throat. A 3mg Melatonin capsule from Swanson Vitamins is
a good candidate for this method if getting to sleep is a problem.
Note: A 50mg "ReVia" Naltrexone Tablet actually weighs about 310mg - 16% Naltrexone and 84% Filler.19mg of the Powder
actually contains 3mg of the chemical Naltrexone and 28mg of the Powder contains 4.5mg of Naltrexone. It would be very
difficult to work with 100% pure powdered Naltrexone Hydrochloride.
