LDN (How to get your doctor to prescribe it)

LDN (Convince Doctor)

I understand that LDN (Low-dose naltrexone) is not officially accepted as a treatment for Crohn's everywhere but that some doctors still prescribe it to their patients, especially when presented with enough Scholarly evidence that it works.

I am based in Germany and i want to ask my doctor to be started on LDN instead of Stelara (after failing other biologics already)

So i am wondering if you guys would be so kind and share with me what worked for you to be able to receive LDN, what articles, websites, testimonies could i share with my doctor to convince him that LDN is a good choice for me too!?

Maybe it's a long shot. But after reading success stories from so many other patients i really want to give this a try before anything else!!

I just went to a doctor who already prescribed LDN. Its much easier to get your prescription refilled by another doctor once someone has already prescribed it. They might not think its the best treatment but nobody ever refused to refill the prescription either.
