Effects of Low Dose Naltrexone in Fibromyalgia
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) has been reported anecdotally to reduce the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, a Chronic Multisystem Illness. The drug may work by regulating natural pain-reducing systems. In this study, we will administer both LDN and placebo to a small group of individuals with Fibromyalgia and Gulf War Syndrome, both Chronic Multisymptom Illnesses, to assess the drug's efficacy in treating the condition.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
