Has anyone experienced withdrawal symptoms from kratom?
I find it strange that no one responded to the question has anyone experienced withdrawal symptoms from kratom? No one on the forum has tried to stop taking kratom?i been on kratom for almost 3 weeks ready to start weaning off the tea ? No comments ? Myself I feel best when I am on nothing stronger than coffee! I even have a problem with abusing coffee I fall in that category of having a genetic disposition to substance abuse! I hate it but it’s the cards I got dealt with
Hey Jim. I myself am a recovering opiate addict with those same traits. I’ve been clean 6 months. I use kratom but only twice a week. I try to keep it very sporadic bc like you I’ve heard the same about withdrawal w kratom. I know this doesn’t answer your question but I’ve experienced no negative effects whatsoever. God bless and good for you for being self aware.
Hi Jim. I have been a faithful kratom user for three years and I can tell you why people aren’t so quick to answer your question. Two years ago the FDA attempted to ban kratom all together and we all know why. They claim it is as bad as pharmas without even asking us users the benefits which dramatically outweigh the negatives. We shut down the FDA witchhunt but now the DEA has poked their noses into it. Honesty, it’s possible people are apprehensive to answer because I’m sure they are trying to collect “data” to move forward with reclassification of kratom. Some people do experience withdrawals but people also experience withdrawals with sugar, caffeine, or anything else people choose to put in their bodies. Personally, I used it to come off of the painkillers I was on for half a decade after a bad car accident and a hysterectomy soon followed that. I was told I had to just live with pain and was forced off of the pills without any warning. This is why people turn to street drugs. Doctors shoved pills down our throats and then treated us like junkies when new laws started passing to “protect” us. All they were protecting was their medical licenses, not giving two thoughts to what it would do to our mind and bodies. Pain isn’t just physical, it can lead to debilitating depression and the withdrawals? Don’t get me started on that. I had heard of kratom and was a bit scared but I couldn’t even pick up my child without my back giving out. I researched kratom and different strains before trying it. When I did, my life changed. I know I sound like a commercial trying to peddle kratom but there are thousands of people like myself who are able to live a relatively pain free life and not need to beg a doctor to help with it. I haven’t changed my dosage since the day I started. Yes, to honestly answer your question, I have experienced minor withdrawal symptoms, but nowhere even close to any of the hell I experienced with painkillers.
Hey Jim, me again. Lol. I wanted to tell you how awesome it is that you reached out. That’s the only way to get the real info about anything is to ask those who have the experience and knowledge about it. I did want to mention that if you do find yourself experiencing any withdrawal symptoms, runny nose, restless legs, irritability, etc, try just taking a half teaspoon. My dosage has always been 2 teaspoons. I mix it with hot water and drink that nasty flavored water. Keep us posted please and good luck to you.
Hi Jim! I’m in same boat. Kratom got me off opiates for chronic pain. I can finally get stuff done. Because of past addictions I am very featful. I wake up sometimes at 2-3 am with sweats. I am weaning myself down on the kratom mainly out of fear, not because of any bad reactions to it. I have a hard time doing things in moderation which is my problem…not the kratom itself. I use a lot of Marijuana too but at least I’m not doing opiates. Life is confusing so I just try to do everything in moderation. It’s a constant struggle
