I've been on an affordable, generic MS medication since 2004, and doing great! Tried all the expensive bilogics for years, plus chemo, and was nearly dead when I found low dose naltrexone. My recovery insoired me to raise $25,000 with others who recovered with LDN, and we funded the first human trial of LDN at Univ CA, results to be announced Spring 2008.
