Hi Paul, you are my go to guy for all things health and Kratom related. I love this forum! :-bd
Thanks! My health is really good, so I must be doing something right. Have you read my new article in the blog today?
Hi. My name is Michelle and I joined the forum today. I just heard of Kratom about 3 weeks ago. I have tried 5 kinds and have had no luck with any of them. I am on the verge of giving up on Kratom. It's gets rather expensive trying to find some that works.
What are you using Kratom for? I use Kratom for anxiety, depression,pain relief,energy,sleep and staying clean!
Mostly pain but I do have PTSD and insomnia
How much are you taking? I started with 1 gram in the evening, it improved my sleep greatly.
I started with 1 tsp for pain. I have went up to 1 tablespoon for pain. It helped a little.
Hi, tigerlily6vs7: I have one question that might uncover why you aren't getting the pain relief you desire. It is this: Are you taking any opioid painkillers? Opiates and opioids, like Percoset, block the same pain receptors in our body. So, if it is already being blocked by a medication, the kratom will have little effect.
If that is not the problem,and you're taking a good quality red vein variety, then you must be the very rare person who needs more than a tbsp to feel good pain relief.
I hope this helps you. I have seen a few people who took quite a bit to get relief and many tries -- and once they get relief they back down on the dose. So, there may still be hope for you.
