My Kratom warning.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.   This is a notice i have never imagined or wanted to post on this forum.   But it is a notice that MUST be posted for the safety and health for anyone that reads it.

 

I began using Kratom a little over a year ago.  I have had an alcohol problem for some years and wanted a way out via a natural help.  I stumbled across Kratom some way or another and so my journey began.

 

Kratom was a god send.    I began taking it every morning that i woke up, 2 teaspoons and off i went...    It gave me energy, happiness and positivity, and most importantly it stopped my urge to drink alcohol.   This daily habit was what i thought under total control, but after maybe a month or so i began to take an afternoon dose too. All good i thought, its herbal.., its not like im abusing a chemical of some kind...    After a while my morning dose wasnt doing what it used to so i upped the dose....     You can see where this is going...I dont have to go on.       To cut a long story short my daily dose climbed higher and higher until it got to ridiculous amounts.     Last Tuesday i had a Grand Mal (Tonic-clonic) seizure at around 10:00 in the morning.    Around 2 hours after ingesting 20-30 grams of Kratom.    I had nothing else in my system except Coffee.      I woke up with 2 Paramedics and my stressed partner above me .  I had a black eye and a badly injured tongue and lips from biting down ,and was rushed to the local hospital.   Im quite shit at writing and reporting but i am happy to answer any questions related to this.....

Anything that touches up your opioid receptors must be treated with respect.

I can really see how easily it could become a major monkey on your back. It's Soo nice and comforting. But it doesn't last very long, so about three hours later, you want more.

Sorry to hear about your experience. Have you had seizures before? Do you plan to taper down/off? I’ve often wondered how regularly people dose and in what quantities without experiencing withdrawals or other negative effects.

Jesus that's a hardcore story Mr BC. Never tried kratom but will definitely heed your warning. 

Hope the tc seizure was a one off and all the best with the kratom taper. It sounds like you have a great attitude towards getting off it, I'm sure you'll pull through and come out on top bro. 

Take care mate.

The hard part is how stupid i was about the whole approach  to it. I should  know better than this  !!! 

 

Im not going to tell everyone not to take it.  Its like anything , Moderation and being sensible is the key. I was an Idiot.

Don't beat ya self up about it mate. We've all let things get a bit out of hand. Think of it this way, if by telling your story just one person doesn't have a similar experience then you've turned an unfortunate experience into a fucken good deed. 

Onwards and upwards my man :)
