I remember reading on this forum that someone was taking this. I looked it up and I want to try this drug. I can't remember who was talking about it though. Anyone have any experience with it? It sounds wonderful!

This drug is used to treat narcotics overdose. I'm not sure why it would be used for Celiac symptoms.

yeah Full Dose Naltrexone (50mg) is used as an opioid blocker, but Low Dose Naltrexone (1.5 - 4.5 mg)is used for people with autoimmune diseases.

The Whitaker Wellness Center in Newport Beach uses it to reverse or halt damage from autoimmune diseases. I know of several people who greatly benefited from it. I got a prescription but then never took it because my husband and I want to get pregnant and i don't want to be on any medication as a precaution. Also, Dr. Mercola has a lot of information about it on his site and recommends it. It's very interesting stuff and seems very worth looking into.

My brother-in-law used it for his Rheumatoid Arthritis. It worked for him.

It is prescribed for Fibromyalgia patients also. I have been trying to stay off the precriptions trying to keep my fibro and Rhumatoid arthritis under control with my gluten free diet. But I think next time I go in i'm gonna ask for it for my Chronic fatigue, I understand that it helps with that too.

I finally had to break down and get a prescription for sleeping pills, my Melatonin and 5-HTP stopped working.

I asked my gastroenterologist about it and he didn't know what I was talking about. I see my rheumatologist on Tuesday and I'm gonna ask him to put me on it. I tried a few of his drugs and they didn't help so I think it's my turn to call the shots.

You may only find that doctors who specialize in intgrative medicine are the only ones who will even know about this. The reason why is that it is not branded by any pharmaceutical companies per se. I had to get my from a compounding pharmacy.
