In brief: Hmm...

Best advice is to ask your docotr/gastroenterologist! there are currently studies of low dose Naltrexone use being done at penn state and other institutions around the globe to determine this; as well as usage of "ldn" for the treatment of other diseases.
Always ask your doctor if this is right for you; and if it is available to you.

In brief: Yes

Low dose Naltrexone can be used for chron's disease - start at 1mg and go up the max you want is 4.
5mg (3mg is better) but you can use different dosing to see which one works best for you. The cheapest one is from gideon pharmacy in newyork costs $18 per month supply you need your doctor to send a script for the medication.
