Naltrexone is used to help people who have a narcotic or alcohol addiction stay drug free. Naltrexone is used after the patient has stopped taking drugs or alcohol. It works by blocking the effects of narcotics or by decreasing the craving for alcohol.

None of the low dose tests are for COPD.

Your IP is not from New Zealand but from the Netherlands. Posts like your are not allowed. I believe you may the same person I have banned before. In that case you are violating EU and US laws by trespassing on this site.

i am from the netherlands and by mistake came new zealand so i am sorry.that is my first time here and if you do not like my message you can ban me.i am not talking about naltrexone which is 50 mg but low dose naltrexone which is 4.5 mg.if you will go to the official site of ldn org you will see that copd is mentioned there and the site is owned by a doctor.
the pharma industry which dictate the all medical world has no intrest in finding if it works for copd because there is no money to gain.the people of ms collect money to have tests done.
my intention is only to raise interst in low dose naltrexone and those that will seek might get some more air.

COPD Support, the owner of this forum has policies about promoting unproven cures. The site you send me to is not a valid site - it is a parked domain for sale. This address is active. There is one reference to 4 patients from one doctor, not enough to consider a valid therapy. http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/index.htm

There are diseases that this seems to have a lot of attention, that have no other treatment. I have a problem when you post it helped a friend. Second hand information from someone not a medical professional is not a good reference. IF this is all that you want to share, you are not welcome. If you want to discuss mainline treatments for your COPD, then that is why we are here.

No where did I see that this LDN is for copd but it does sound promising for my daughter who has ALS (a fatal form of MS). Unfortunately it is at least 5 years down the road for her disease which very well could be too late. :(

We don't block anyone from seeking anything. We restrict who can bring 'new and unproven' information to the table. We do not know you, you are not part of our membership. You have earned our trust or respect. You do not have COPD, and this group is for people who have COPD or are caregivers - not for people to promote an agenda of an unproven drug. Go back to the Yahoo group.

Thank you about the suggestion to join a yahoo group. I have had copd for 24 years and just recently underwent lung reduction surgery so I actually know more about copd than I want to, LOL! People with ALS have a life expectancy of about 5 years. My daughter is in her 6th or 7th year, is still working and enjoying life to the best of her ability. If, by some quirk of fate, she can hang on for another 5 years, they may have something that can cure her disease. What lies ahead of her is not a particularly pretty picture.

I want to be clear - if you are a member of the COPD Support community - a patient or caregiver, and you post a first hand account of a method that a doctor or other medical professional tried to help with the disease, then that is acceptable. Third person accounts of unsupported medical 'cures' is not. When you post a first person, you are able to share all the information including why it was tried, how long it took to work, how long it was taken for and most important side effects.
