Autoimmune disorders are a group of conditions that arise when the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body, leading to inflammation, pain, and dysfunction of various organs. These conditions can affect any part of the body, including the skin, joints, organs, and connective tissue, and can be debilitating for those who suffer from them.

More Effective

Conventional medications for autoimmune disorders typically involve the use of immunosuppressive drugs, which can be effective in reducing inflammation and controlling symptoms. However, these medications often have significant side effects, such as increased risk of infections, organ damage, and toxicity. As a result, many patients are turning to custom compounded medications as a safer and more effective alternative.

Tailored to your needs

FarmaKeio creates custom compounded medications are tailored to the individual patient’s needs and can be prepared by a licensed compounding pharmacist using FDA-approved ingredients. These medications can be formulated in a variety of strengths, forms, and delivery methods, such as capsules, creams, gels, and injections. Custom compounding allows for the use of lower doses of medications, reducing the risk of side effects while still achieving therapeutic benefits.

About Naltrexone

One medication that has gained popularity in recent years for the treatment of autoimmune disorders is naltrexone. Originally used as an opioid antagonist to treat addiction, naltrexone has been found to have immunomodulatory properties at lower doses. Naltrexone works by blocking the opioid receptors in the brain, which in turn stimulates the release of endorphins and other natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body. This effect is thought to reduce inflammation and regulate the immune system, making it an effective treatment for autoimmune disorders.

added benefits

When used in custom compounded medications for autoimmune disorders, naltrexone is typically formulated in low doses, ranging from 1.5 mg to 4.5 mg per day. The medication can be prepared in various forms, including capsules, topical creams, and sublingual tablets, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences. Some patients may benefit from the addition of other ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, or other immune-boosting compounds, to enhance the medication’s effectiveness.

Low-dose naltrexone

One example of a custom compounded medication that uses naltrexone for the treatment of autoimmune disorders is LDN (low-dose naltrexone). LDN is typically prepared as a capsule or sublingual tablet and is taken once daily before bedtime. Studies have shown that LDN can be effective in reducing inflammation and improving symptoms in patients with a variety of autoimmune disorders, including multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia.

LDN works by increasing the production of endorphins in the body, which in turn regulates the immune system and reduces inflammation. LDN also has been shown to promote the growth and repair of nerve cells, which can help to alleviate symptoms of nerve damage associated with autoimmune disorders.

targeted and effective treatment

One advantage of custom compounded medications like LDN is that they can be tailored to the individual patient's needs and adjusted as necessary based on their response to the medication. This personalized approach allows for a more targeted and effective treatment of autoimmune disorders while minimizing the risk of side effects.


Custom compounded medications that use naltrexone for the treatment of autoimmune disorders offer a safe and effective alternative to traditional immunosuppressive drugs. By regulating the immune system and reducing inflammation, these medications can improve symptoms and enhance the patient’s quality of life. With the help of a licensed compounding pharmacist, patients with autoimmune disorders can receive personalized treatment that meets their specific needs and preferences.
