I'm in IL but even if they can deliver. I paid around 60 for 30 pills which is ridiculous. I'm Looking for a more fair price. Probably for 1.5 mg pills.

I get mine from Hopkington drug in MA. They gave me 4mg capsules, but my LLMD had discussed starting at 3mg for 30 days then increase. Some folks need to start at lower dose. So discuss getting 1 mg capsules for better dosage control.

Cost was pretty good at around $41 for 3 month supply, plus shipping.

I get it compounded at Capstone Compounding in PA. Mine is a syrup which I take sublingual. It is nice that way because I can adjust my dosage as needed.

For instance I have been working up to 2 mg. I started at 0.5. Last time I was at 2 mg I had a total sensory meltdown so i backed off and worked my way back up.

Sorry dont know the price.

They are in Aurora, IL (far western suburb of Chicago). Don't know what they charge - we used them years ago.

All my bottle says is "NALTREXONE 10MG/ML AOS W/SYR".

Probably not too helpful.

Ive just read not to use lacto. But they do have another option, so I'd use that if I went w/them.

6Hypnone, when I was prescribed LDN I called several pharmacies to get prices. It was shocking that the price could vary as much as $40-$50 for the same strength and quantity! Call around for pricing.

It has been quite some time since I took it, but I believe I used Belmar Pharmacy. I could get a three-month supply at once. They were the best price and they did not charge shipping.

There is some info here including a list of pharmacies:

Pharmacies that are known to be reliable compounders of LDN:
(Note: Not all pharmacies ship to all locations; some cannot ship out of state, some ship only to certain states. Call for latest info.)
