Kratom to reduce withdrawal from opiate withdrawal symptoms

Updated on August 15, 2019 in No Category

I am trying to detox off of opioid painkillers and I get very bad withdrawal sickness. Has anyone had experience with using Kraton to mitigate the withdrawal sickness? if so, what type of Kratom worked the best? I am not looking to get high, I was in a pain management program and am tired of the government regulations constantly interfering with my treatment. I am hoping I can find a type of Kratom that reduces the withdrawal sickness getting off the pharmaceuticals and then I will hopefully find a type of Kratom that helps with the pain. I have spondylolisthesis from spinal fractures in my late 20’s. Now that I am 58, those fractures are causing pain issues but I am not keen on pain management programs because they are money grubbing doctors that can’t practice any other specialty and are close to losing their license. Also, I would prefer something natural. First off, I have to deal with this withdrawal sickness so I can get off the oxycodone. I don’t expect the Kratom to totally remove the withdrawal illness but I am hoping it makes it a little less severe. Any suggestions?

I would appreciate any information on this topic as well.  I have been in pain management for close to ten (10) years now, and take 100mg. Fentanyl for baseline, and 30mg, Roxycodone for breakthrough pain.  However, with all the attention now on Fentanyl and Opiates in general, the law-abiding citizens and patients are getting the third degree everytime you need a script filled. Now, my insurance company is either cutting my medicine to 1/2 dose or not paying for it at all!

It is frustrating and I too have had enough, I want to detox off of them, and I am hoping to use Kratom to assist me in this effort.  I started two days ago, 4-600mg. capsules, (1.9 gm.) and felt nothing.  (I had read that a Kratom Newbie should start around 2 gm. to begin.) so today I took 5 and still nothing, tomorrow I will try 6 and see that that does. My point is that you will need to figure out how much to take as well. I too hope it lessens withdrawal symptoms, if so, it would be a godsend.  I don;t have time or money for Rehab. and suboxone is taking the same thing without the high. It is misleading because people think they are off the opiates, but they are not.

ANY experience you have that you can share on utilizing Kratom for this purpose I am sure would be appreciated by many if you have experience doing this.

Thank so much for this forum too!

Me too.  I just got told by the pill Nazi nurse that my PKD, end stage renal disease isnt a disease that the government deems necessary for pain meds and this would be my last rx.; she said cancer/hospice patients are the only people that will get pain medication.  Gotta love the notice also the fact that if I was a drug addict I would be referred to some kind of treatment facility.  I am tired of being chained to Big Pharma…….

i was taking all kinds of pain meds ,from opiates to hydrocodone ..after getting tired of the roller coaster rides ,i made up my mind to get off all meds and get away from big pharma,..i researched on the net and found Kratom. it has been my God send!! with out hardly any with drawals i got off and have never been back !! as i was warned ,i will warn anyone else the same, you must not take meds and kratom together! that is to say if you are determined to get off opiates or anyother pain killer, do not take kratom with them..im no doctor ,just passing the same information that i received…it has been 4 years for me with no pain meds what so ever ! Kratom is hated by big pharma and wants it shut down, why?! cause it is a natural plant and it works !!

I was expecting withdrawal symptoms from hydrocodone and oxycodone plus post surgical pain from having surgery 3 months ago I been off the opiate pain killers for about a month I went through a vendor called happy hippo and found a strain called hippo sky I take in the morning at night I take a strain called elephant
The hippo skie helped the withdrawal symptoms in the day time & the elephant helped with pain!
I know there are a lot of vendors & strains to choose from you just have to find one that works for your body?
I never heard of kratom prior to last week!
For me it works better than detox pills plus there is some pain relief!….don’t take to much you don’t want it to turn to abuse and have a addiction thing to deal with!

I had a knee& hip replacement 2 back surgery’s foot & hernia surgery and my appendix came out I got off the opiate pain medication 30 days ago this is what helped me with post surgical pain & withdrawal symptoms the first 3 days off medication will be the worst part of withdrawal normally symptoms peak on the third day I use some detox medication the first week muscle relaxer Valium Imodium ad clonidine moltri 800 ect.
then the second week I used kratom tea and stopped taking the detox meds I went through a vendor called happy hippo I use sky hippo tea & elete elephant tea in the day time then I switch to Snuggie and sleepy hippo tea at night today is day 31 off of all opiate pain meds and I am feeling ok I hope my advice helped?
Ps try not to take to much tea or take it to long or you may be just creating a new problem to detox off of because if you abuse the tea you will have a whole new type of detox withdrawal symptoms to deal with…………………………….God Bless and good luck

Jim,

Thanks for sharing your story! You’ve given me (and I’m sure others), hope and inspiration to get off these Opiates!

If anyone else has been successful, and can comment, I’m sure I speak for everyone in this forum, Thank you for taking the time and for sharing the information, it is truly appreciated!

Best wishes everyone, and hopefully we’ll be successful as well!  I have tried MANY ways to detox, and so far Kratom is my only viable hope at this point. I was thinking of using Kratom and Marijuana “meds” to get off the Opiates, and as other wise people have shared, using them as a tool, not a substitute.

Thanks to all, Mark;

I am 38 days of of a 10yr opiate addiction and for the last 5 years I was on 24mg of suboxone a day. A friend of mine on facebook was posting about how he got off opiates with kratom. So I said what the heck I’ll give it a try. I quit the suboxone cold Turkey on March 3 2018. I started with 3grams of red Hulu and it wasn’t really helping I still felt bad so increased my dose to 6grams 4 times a day and It worked I didn’t feel perfect days 5- 20. On day 21 I started feeling alot better. The kratom was really working well around the third week. Now I’m on day 38 I feel absolutely amazing. Mournings are still a little rough but it’s getting better everyday. I also take vitamin and exercise and that helps a lot. I hope this helps.

Can you please tell me where to go d it? I love in South Carolina and have been googling it to try to find somewhere but I’m lost.

LisaZ, most head shops got Kratom, but if you are looking on internet then PurKratom.com is one…

I have been prescribed oxycodone for the past 15 years to treat chronic pain. With this opioid epidemic going on my doctor has decided to cut my prescriptions in half and I am fed up with being treated like I am an addict. So I have decided to try kratom after months of reasearch. I just received my Bali kratom as I heard this is the best. Looking for dosage recommendations
I was taking 150mg daily. I am 225lbs. Praying g this will woek so and recommendations on dosage to start would be greatly appreciated.

on April 11, 2018

Monster – same here!  That;s why I love hearing stories from people like Jim and Dgibbs., it gives us hope.

And I definitely her you on the trapped thing!  So far I’ve heard about the GI and diarreha on Kratom, but I’ve suffered no effects thus far, well, at lest not as bad as withdrawal!

Good Luck!

Newbie;

Thank YOUR for your response…

Could please give me a summary of where you are…

The last post I seen you were at:

-600mg. capsules, (1.9 gm.) and felt nothing. (I had read that a Kratom Newbie should start around 2 gm. to begin.) so today I took 5 and still nothing, tomorrow I will try 6 and see that that does. My point is that you will need to figure out how much to take as well. I too hope it lessens withdrawal symptoms, if so, it would be a godsend.


Day one you took 5 grams 1x per day?

Day two you 6 grams 1x per day?

Day 3 

Also, did you stop your meds and then start taking the kratom? or Are you weaning down while figuring your kratom dose?

I thought I would replace each roxi dose with a kratom dose

I.E. I am take 6, 30 Mgs a day, eventually I would be taking 6 Grams of Kratom, 6x;s a day

???

And remember to buy a few different Strains of kratom so your body don’t get use to the same strain. I take white borneo in the day for energy and red or green strains at night. Sometimes I mix and match lol. Don’t be afraid to dose. If u feel bad dose. Sometimes I even do 6 to 7 doses a day. If I’m having a bad day. And you can check out MYSTIC GYPSY that’s where I get my kratom. Half kilo for 25 bucks of really good quality. And it will be shipped to u in 3 business days. I usually buy two half kilos and the total cost is 57 bucks well worth it. I’f u can prevent buying it in head shops do so because they are outrageous.
