I get decent relief in fatigue, muscle stiffness, general muscular soreness and i seemed to have more zest/ energy and that seemed to elevate my mood. I tolerated it well and had no problem getting upto the 4.5ml max dose. However I get a good deal of neuropathic pain and this as been very troublesome of late and its hard to find anything that touches it. I'm still happy with the LDN as its helped alot in the areas ive mentioned.

Hope it helps you too. Was it on private prescription or did your GP/ Neuro give it you?
