 Kratom Mitragyna Speciosa

Mitragyna speciosa (commonly known as kratom[8]) is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia. M. speciosa is indigenous to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea,[9] where it has been used in traditional medicines since at least the nineteenth century.[4] Kratom has opioid properties and some stimulant-like effects.[10][11][12] As of 2018 ...
Methadone and Kratom

I've been going to the methadone clinic for 3 months. My dosage is 60mg daily. I'm working part-time and can't afford it anymore. I've read online about Kratom supplements. Is there a way to stop methadone and combat the withdrawals using Kratom? How would the process work? I'd like to stop methadone cold turkey as well as ensure I'm using the Kratom properly for best results. ...

Is Kratom good for pain

I have been on 10 mg oxycodone and codeine #4 for 10 years and now I'm sick of it. I was told kratom is good for pain. Does anyone know if it really works? Pain meds don't work any more and I want off of pain killers. ## I have been looking at kratom forums on the web seeking alternatives to pain pills. I'm getting mixed opinions on it being effective for pain issues. There are online vendors who feature an option of buying a few different strains which you can sample. Most forum users are seeking a way to detox from the pills using kratom to cope with withdrawal symptoms. ## I believe that Kratom is the best pain reliever on the face of the Earth. I have been a Chronic Pain patient for 20 years and have been prescribed Everything Possible for severe pain. Kratom works bette... ...

Naltrexone and kratom

I've been taking approximately 6g of kratom every 4 to 6 hours for about 2 years now. I want to use a weight loss medication which contains naltrexone but wonder if it will cause withdrawal sickness because of my kratom use? ## Hi, I am in the same boat as you. Have not been using Kratom that long (about 6 months) but want to start Contrave for weight loss. I am also hoping the naltrexone will help me not use the Kratom anymore as I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to quit for a few weeks now. I think it will help with that but my concern now is that I will go into extreme withdrawals when I take the first dose. Did you end up taking yours? ## Personally, I think it would be best to consult a doctor for the purpose of setting up a tapering schedule with kratom in order to lessen an... ...

kratom dosage (capsules)

Hi, I bought some kratom (green malay) in capsule form. The capsules contain around 0.38mg per capsule. How many do I need to take for minimum desired effect? I tried 3 yesterday to no avail. Tried 6 around an hour ago and I don't feel anything. ## I would recommend ordering the tri force blend from KratomOne. Their shipping is insanely fast and I've found this blend to be the most beneficial. I take around a tablespoon at a time. ## @The original poster, The threshold dose for my personal use of kratom is eight to 12 "00" size capsules (around 1 teaspoon) depending on the quality and strain. It may be that you are just under the threshold dose when taking only 6 capsules (which I know already seems like a lot of capsules to take), but that's just been my experience.... ...

kratom - does it block pain?

Does kratom block pain? If so how much is needed? I am on 50 fentanyl for a year + 30 mg er morphine 2x daily before that, but still have lower lumbar neck and knee pain, and need to keep working or try... Please advise. ## Hey Jeff, sorry to hear about your pain. I don't know how the kratom plant translates to doses of conventional pain medication but yes, it is reported to be a pain killer with a similar mechanism of action as other opioids. May I ask what State you live in? Kratom is perfectly legal in most states but there are some states / counties that have outlawed it. Still one of those gray areas and research should be conducted by anyone who is considering it for pain management or withdrawals. Hope this helps! Sources: ## Yes Kratom is great for pain and it makes you fee... ...

What is kratom and why is it used?

Why is kratom used? Is it a natural herb? Is it safe for smoking cessation? Can it also be used for opiate withdrawal? I read in one of the posts that kratom is used for opiate withdrawal. Is it effective? ## Yes, it worked for me. I got the Red Bail for pain and I also use the Green. It works well. Hope you give it a try and I pray it helps you. ## Kratom FAQs: Q: Why is Kratom used? A: Kratom has a wide variety of potential use-cases ranging from anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, pain relief, mood lifting, endurance, hypertension, diabetes, and much more...

does kratom have effects with xarelto

Does Kratom have any side effects if used with medication like Xarelto ## To my knowledge there aren't any official drug interactions listed between the two substances. Personally, I started taking Kratom a few months ago (infrequently) for muscle pain, but have developed a good understanding of how it works with my body at specific doses. Kratoms effects are said to be similar to that of opiates, but since everyone is subject to respond differently with any medication, I probably wouldn't recommend mixing pharmaceuticals with potent herbs like Kratom without first consulting a doctor or naturopath who know their pharmacology well enough to make an informed judgement call. That's just me though. Kratom has reportedly been around for hundreds if not thousands of years and pro... ...

Kratom and precipitated withdrawal Butrans

Does anyone have experience switching from large doses of Kratom (25g a day) to a Butrans patch? Is the Kratom strong enough to give precipitated withdrawals? The Butrans is for pain. ## That's an interesting question because it's usually the other way around, with patients switching from prescription opiates to Kratom. Having taken Kratom myself, my opinion is that I don't think it'll stop Butrans from working altogether, but if your opiate receptors are already filled by Kratom then Butrans may only add to the level of cross tolerance if I'm not mistaken (and affecting drug efficacy from a tolerance standpoint / not enough receptors to fill?). Some feedback I've read also suggests taking a short break from Kratom during the transition to allow other opiates to ... ...

Kratom VS Narcotic Efficacy In Pain Management

In your experience, which one works best for pain management? Taking side effects into consideration, I find that kratom wins by a long shot over narcotic pain meds. During my experiment with kratom, I've only ever experienced temporary nausea less than a handful of times in higher doses... On the other hand pharmaceuticals have side effect lists that are longer than many children's stories (not to mention being potentially severe / life threatening to top it off). Having experience with both kratom and vicodin, my personal assessment is that (depending on the strain) kratom has noticeably stronger analgesic effects - but I wonder if anyone else feels the same way? If so, which pharmaceutical medication do you think kratom's pain relieving efficacy is comparable to? Do you t... ...

how long after taking kratom can you take suboxone

Hi I have been on suboxone for four weeks, before that I was on methadone for five years. I decided to try kratom to stop the suboxone but it isn't really doing much and I feel really lethargic and headaches. I took about 4-5gram of kratom at 8am, it's now 1:40pm"..I want to take some suboxone, will I get sick? Precipitated withdrawals? I've seen some people say they take suboxone after kratom and are fine, but, there isn't much out there on the topic. I just don't wanna get sick for I have a three ur old boy and Christmas is in two days ## I got no response but ended up taking 2mg suboxone at 2:30 and was fine...took another 1mg a little later and still fine...just a bit of a headache but I always get that from sunoxone ## It seems like no one can really answer ... ...

There is a natural supplement that will help withdrawals tremendously and it's legal

Try this its changed my life, it's called kratom and it's available at most adult and head shops the dosage is at least 5 grams but it works better than anything that doctors have given and you don't need to worry about trading one addiction for another , it's a natural opiate so for people who aren't heavy users this stuff will make you feel as though you have taken loratabs.its just overall a safer way to kick a bad habit .If you are a heavy user don't give up if you don't feel the opiate effects the first couple of weeks because you will eventually plus it will help the withdrawal immediately. ## Hi Tammy, I've only read about kratom on other message boards and for some reason they were bashing it for being Bad, I don't know why but now I'm cur... ...

So by taking Naltrexone (an o... ...

NIH (PubMed Study) Showing Signs of Lacking Credibility

The following quotes are directly from NIH's PubMed study - giving a rundown of their review on Kratom [see link below for reference]. But here’s where things get confusing - STATEMENT A: “In Southeast Asia, kratom has been used for decades as an herbal medication to treat chronic pain, increase energy and stamina, treat chronic pain and diarrhea, and as a substitute for opium or for opium withdrawal.” STATEMENT B: “Extracts of kratom have been used to treat chronic pain, diarrhea and cough.” STATEMENT C: “Kratom has not been shown to have any beneficial medical uses.” Now is that a not contradiction or what?! Since when has chronic pain, GI or respiratory issues been deemed 'non-medical related'? Last I checked, pharmacies were still p ...

I ran out of tramadol and can't get to Dr

I ran out of tramadol and can't see dr. for a few days. What can I take to avoid withdrawal symptoms ## There is a product called Kratom used for people on Tramadol as a replacement and it also replaces methadone for withdrawals for those on stronger opioids. There's a number of articles from numerous sources posted here and it's available (so far) without a script. Buying Tramadol now that it's controlled from Mexico or offshore is now very risky since it's classified as controlled. US Customs has the right to come after purchasers since the amendment to the Consumer Protection Act signed in April 2008 makes it illegal to sell or buy controlled meds off the internet w/o a dr's Rx so be careful. Read the reviews and see if it's right for you. Because it acts ... ...

Opium lettuce?? Anyone heard of this?

Don't laugh! Wild lettuce is being touted as an actual pain reliever. Anyone hear of this? Anyone tried this? Some are putting it on par with Kratom. I actually bought some from a good company (swanson) but no pain relief. Both liquid and capsule were ineffective, but I'd be willing to try another brand if someone can verify it is even a little efficacious. Though I suspect it has contributed to relaxation allowing me to at least get a more restful sleep. Not sure if it is any more helpful than melatonin, or chamomile tea, lol. On the other hand, I suspect it may have contributed to extending the pain relief I get from the oxycodone I use. I will freely admit that this could be just wishful thinking. It may be a substance that the benefit is not realized until there is an establ... ...

Opiate addiction and trying to beat it

I have had a problem with opiates going back to 2006 starting with vicodin following shoulder surgery. My usage progressed to Percocet, fentanyl, OxyContin, suboxone - clean for 2.5 years, relapse on tramadol, back on suboxone for 2 years, jumped at 2mgs and now weening with kratom. To say it has been a journey is an understatement. I am not naive enough to think that using kratom means I'm "clean" from opiates. It is filling my receptors just like the rest an it's time for me to stop. I've been actively trying to stay clean for about a year now. I no longer chase the high, I just run from WDs. I've gone through them more times to count and only once pulled through and stayed clean for longer than a week or 2. I actually was clean for almost 3 years following my ... ...

Oxy loses is glitz eventually

Hi. I started taking Oxy for my back pain about a year ago. I noticed an added benefit was a general energy lift and of course kept taking them even after my back was healed. Not daily at first, of course. However, a year later I was up to about 50mg per day give or take a few mg either way. Today is day 2 of no oxy's from a 4 day taper. Feeling ok. I've been taking immodium and kratom off and on throughout the 2 days and even though I'm not 100%, I know it could be much worse. A little sneezing, rls and just a general achy feeling. I do have some Xanax that is helping me sleep at night so thank God for that. I don't know how I would do this without sleep. For anyone going through this, please hang in there. I've noticed that when I get the craving really bad, I can ... ...

how to get off of tramadol

I have been taking tramadol 50mg for the last two years. I think i am addicted to it and it's deteriorating my health. So plz give me a suggestion as to how i can get off of it. ## A slow taper is usually the best solution, according to NIH reports. Withdrawals could cause nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, rebound pain, and seizures. Are you on any other medications? How much Tramadol are you taking each day? ## Kratom red vein....research it. I'm on day 5 cold turkey with little to no withdrawals....I was taking 8 to 20 a day for 3 years. I tried tapering and cold turkey before and thought I was going to die. I'm taking 5gms every 5 hrs but you may be different. Start slow and move up every 45 min till you stop feeling withdrawals. Then try to keep it in your system for a w... ...
