Conditions marked by inflammatory responses in the body can be difficult to treat. Rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, and other inflammatory conditions are often treated with expensive medications.
What is Naltrexone?
Naltrexone is a medication that has been on the market for years, and is generally used to treat alcohol and opioid addictions. At low doses, however, naltrexone has demonstrated the potential to be very useful in treating inflammatory conditions by causing up-regulation in the body’s natural endorphins, limiting the effects of cells in the body that create inflammation and overly aggressive immune responses. Low-dose naltrexone is readily available, affordable, and easily taken, with a side effect profile that is very limited compared to biological drugs and steroids often used to treat these conditions.

Do I need a Prescription?
Medications are compounded and dispensed to patients only upon receipt of a valid patient-specific prescription.
Compounding is a relationship between the patient, physician, and pharmacist. Together, they will work together to provide an alternative treatment option when and if the current available treatment options are not the best fit for you.
