    Default Advice please Uk

    I have changed my doctors and would be interested in trying LDN
    Has anyone in the UK managed to get an NHS Doctor to prescribe this ?
    If so how did you reason with them or what information did you show them ?
    And for anyone that buys private how much for each strength?

    As this is an unlicensed drug you won't get an NHS doctor to prescribe it.

    If you go to the start of this thread and look for posts by Fiugs she kindly explains just how to obtain a private prescription in detail.

    Good luck!

    Does it help with the spots aswell or just the flushing?

    Everyone is different, I started on a very, very low dose of 0.5 mg and increased VERY slowly (less is certainly more with LDN).

    When your face flushes less and isn't so reactive, everything calms down (wouldn't say it helps with spots) just helped me with flushing and nerve pain.

    All the best
