I am 65 years old and have been on kratom for 3 years..About 7gpd..Need help on how to taper.How much and when to take it through out the day..Need to rid myself of this horrible addiction asap.Thaks
Hi – I am in the same boat. 65 years old, using daily for almost two years. I am up to a packed tsp (about 2.5-3g) three times a day, and a heaping one or two during the night. I’m guessing my daily dosage is 15g. I tried to quit cold turkey and caved after a sleepless night of sweating and twitching uncontrollably. I am going to try the tapering method of cutting .5 g every two days. I’m going to use a scale, and pre-measure the doses. Since night is the hardest, I’m going to try reducing the mid day dose first. We could try to go through this together if you want, just to be accountable?
I am with you all on quitting unfortunately! I have used white and green manga on Friday and Saturday evenings for the past five years. Red is better supposedly? Every now and then I’ve done a three day a week use around holidays and time off . Out of nowhere this Saturday at 2:00am while going to bed I had a panic attack and was praying like crazy, wondering if I should call the medics. It finally leveled itself out by 4:30am or so. It was scary. I know it’s not good but I usually mix alcohol with it those Friday and Sat nights. It was a normal night with maybe 8 grams or so with about 6 drinks. However, I keep hearing and reading that this substance may be more like an opioid that previously thought which I not really what I want to be messing with. I used to hear that it was impossible to overdose on and everyone just throws up. Maybe it’s just my body saying it’s time to stop. It’s hard to say goodbye to something that was nice coming home after long and stressful weeks at work. Oh well! I hope everyone else is doing okay quitting. I don’t believe in banning this substance or telling others what to do but this is just a case of what happened to me.
