Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol and kratom


Avatar m tn I’m not sure how to do it. I’m on 400mg Tramadol / day (100mg 4 x day) Can I use Tramadol and Kratom together ? How much Kratom and when ? Can I simply replace part of the dosage with Kratom ? I have a spinal injury and in constant pain. Thanks for all the advice.

Avatar f tn I just went and bought a $20 bottle of kratom extract. It did help a little with body pains and im able to function but the anxiety is still there. Not looking forward to the morning. Thats hoping this helps me sleep. just trying to stay busy while I can. Thanks for answering btw.
Avatar m tn I am a professional and a well known in my community. and have had this secret addiction for 10 years off and on but now the time has come to quit after my addiction has gotten me in legal trouble manipulating a prescription. I knew this was coming...I have been off tramadol for a week but after two days of ct, I had a dental surgery which gave me me oxycodone which I have tried to use sparingly to deal with the withdrawals of tramadol.
Avatar n tn i found out the hard way if you use to much kratom it will make you sleepy and give you a killer headake...
Avatar m tn The two worst drugs for me to kick was tramadol and suboxone.. it was pure hell.. but the amphetamines saved my life.
Avatar n tn make a tea from using a ratio of 1gm of crushed kratom to 1 oz of water and boil the hell out of it for 30 min strain it add sugar and chill in the fridg ... about 8 to 10 oz of tea will give you about 7 to 15 mg of kratom... that is a mediun dose doses higher than 20 grams will make you feel very sleepy.... lower doses will give you a stimulation effect...
Avatar n tn Most of you longtime posters here know me and i wanted to share something with you. I have been experminting with Kratom for the past month and wanted to share something with you.. I have been using Kratom to manage my pain and get my energy back with wonderful results. I have been using it off and on for about 4 weeks now and it works great to stop my pain with no ill side effects. It has had no addictive properties with me .. I can use it for a week and stop for 4 or 5 days with no WDs.
Avatar n tn I used TRam for 2 years for low back pain and i was taking 10 50mg tabs a day. My question is What is the best way to use Kratom for the withdrawls? Is it better to make tea or smoke it? How much do i need to buy my first time using it? Where is the cheepest place to get it as my financial situation is not at its best. Anyone that used or uses KRATOM can you offer any answers to my questions.
Avatar n tn i have seen a number of posts on here amout kratom the best way to learn about it is go to any search page and search in on kratom.. that is how i learned about it and how to use it.... its been a life saver for me during this war i am in with tramadol addiction... the best advice i can give you if you want to know if it will work for you is to buy a small amount andtry it. it dosnt work the same for everyone...
1269044 tn?1393193503 I know y'all are probably getting tired of seeing me complain about kratom but here goes again. A simple Google check and you will find a lot about kratom. I begin using shortly after being clean from a 150 mg hydro habit. At first I barely noticed the effects probably from high tolerance. Then one day after about a week using it I realized I loved it. Now in some way I'm hesitant to discuss it here for fear of giving others a bad idea. I strongly urge younot to mess with it.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much for your suggestions and for your time. Tomorrow is my last day of tramadol and I am praying my kratom arrives tomorrow.
Avatar f tn Welcome to the forum! Tramadol is a totally synthetic opioid and also has an antidepressant component in it so can be more difficult in some ways to w/draw from but can absolutely be done! I read in your other post that you get these pills online...which also means you aren't guaranteed what's actually in them, ya know? Using Kratom is probably not a good idea....
Avatar f tn I got some thai kratom capsules saturday for my tramadol withdrawl. I have no idea how many to take or how long in between doses. So far I've been taking handfuls of caps every 4 hours or so and I feel pretty great in a natural sort of way except for sleep. They are expensive, though, so I wish I had some sort of gauge as to how many. I'm an addict, however, and so if i feel nothing i take more right away. I'm probably taking way too many....can there be negative effects from too much?
Avatar m tn I'm now at four and will probably stay on it at that dosage. She will probably be sad, out of sorts, and anxious while she is coming off, as tramadol has an antidepressant effect, and her body will miss that effect. Hang in there! If she'd like to join the forum chat, she would be very welcome. I wish both of you all the best!
Avatar n tn About 4 months ago, I became involved in a fairly intense project and was experiencing more discomfort. Without really thinking much about it, I started using tramadol every day and then increased this to 2-3 times each day. The dosage was 100mg, so I was taking 100-300mg daily (or 2-6, 50mg pills) for 3 months. After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW!
Avatar f tn this is what i can remember and i know he has lied to me about alot. Lyrica, Gabapentin, Kratom, Valium, Tramadol, Hydrocodone, clonodine, lots and lots of bc powder, other pain killers can't remember the name, unbelievable amounts of gaba and kratom, took 50+ imodium several times at once, caffiene pills, simethicone, lots and lots of kratom. (for those who say kratom isn't bad, i can set a timer for the changes in him after he takes kratom, it makes him a completely different person...
1269044 tn?1393193503 It'd hard to find info on kratom but somethings I've read are it may be similarto tramadol. This makes sense given my withdrawal length and the horrific anxiety and depression. A darkness I've never experienced. No matter what I kicked that mother-f##### a##!! Sorry just a little bit proud! The good news is there is an end to the nightmare of acute wds. It took me 11.5 days. Now I'm looking fwd to my 2 week anniversary.
20805500 tn?1515429443 My story is like many, normally just used alcohol to wind down in the evenings, I started to worry about the amount I was drinking so looked towards other things to have fun / calm down / be sociable with. I became hooked on tramadol. I was using off and an for about 1.5 years. At the height sometimes taking 600mg day. Tried several times to come off, the longest being a month. The withdrawals were awful, the worst being restless legs. I'm now finally finished and two weeks clean.
199177 tn?1490502134 I used an herb that grows here called Kratom (Mitragina speciosa) to help me get off of Tramadol and it worked. I had tried to stop the Tramadol by tapering off but the with drawl symptoms were just too brutal. I'd say the with drawl symptoms were reduced by 70% with the Kratom. Kratom is a serious drug that is addictive and illegal in some countries, not a cute herb. It is not an opiate though and it did not trigger any addictive response with me after 2 weeks of use.
5420258 tn?1406910257 Well, folks - happy to come back and report that - I DID IT!! *releases bunches of colorful balloons and skips through fresh green meadow* I didn't come by it easy so let me tell you how I did it. Indulge me? Thanks! So backtrack to this past November, a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Got in a fight with the hubby because my Tramadol habit was getting worse, while the money required to keep up the habit was getting higher.
Avatar m tn Today is my 13th day cold turkey detox from a 7 year heavy addiction to Tramadol And Codeine Phosphate. My typical day was 40-50 x 50mg Tramadol, (10x50mg every 90 minutes) then I would "finish" the day with 12-24 x 30mg Codeine Phosphate, 2 "sittings" of 12x30mg, I was prescribed these by my GP after a martial art injury for years, no questions asked, no alternatives sourced, In no time I was hooked to these meds and a typical 2 week prescription was only lasting me 2 days!
470217 tn?1360568961 I just don't want to do it all at the same time, as I'd have to do if I tapered and then jumped off Tramadol, and dealt with the full force of the opiate-like withdrawal AND serotonin AND nor epinephrine discontinuation syndrome. Yikes. Again--I fully respect those who have done this. So far today all I've taken is 1 Zoloft and 1 Wellbutrin. It's noon. Opiate-wise I think I'll push this as far as I can comfortably do today, without alienating my loved ones.
Avatar m tn First, thanks to all those that post on this board, I've read many threads here about Tramadol addiction and they've been most helpful, and helped make this detox less hellish. The reason I'm posting this new thread rather than adding to the already plentiful threads revolving around the same subject is because I have some additional concerns not already covered in the other posts. I want to know what comes [i]after[/i] the Tramadol.
Avatar m tn because I have used tramadol in between scrips..(but they never stood a chance)...and then I would get hydros and quit the tramadol... I am on Day 28 from 18-20 hydros a day....and I took 3 tramadol on day 4 and day 5...which did not seem to help with I quit taking the tramadol...and had to side effects. I was just wondering, you said that your took tramadol in place of opiates...hydro's, oxy, percs...and went through meth treatment 4 years ago....Just be honest...
Avatar m tn I'm seven days clean CT from Tramadol but only because I can get a few percocet tens a day. I don't have the funds to get large amounts of narcs on the street so this, I believe, is a good thing as far as taking the steps to quit everything altogether. I've been on Tramadol every day for four years. I started from taking one to two to as of seven days ago, 20-25 50mg tabs a day. Five at a time.
Avatar n tn I have been on tramadol off and on for 3 years. I say off and on because when the scrip run's out is is usually for about 2 weeks, then I get it again. I sure wish I was strong anough to not get the scrip I have coming in 5 or 6 day's. Tapering off, weening yourself is best way, unless ther is ultra rapid detox, which, I do nont know about you, but I KNOW I cannot aford. I do not have a good support team here to help me. My husband is an alcholic (spledd right of course).
Avatar n tn It helped me tremendously to alleviate the mental torture and cramping associated with Tramadol withdrawl. Kratom however is an addictive drug in it's own right and must be viewed as a temporary tool for recovery. It is a controlled substance in some countries in S.E. Asia. It's also the most foul tasting stuff around. It is available on many internet sites in North America. I introduced Kratom slowly while reducing my daily in-take of Tramadol.
5549258 tn?1449086682 and Kratom....and Weed....and Lyrica...and your opiate receptors haven't even had a full 24 hrs yet to begin healing. Your central nervous system doesn't know what to I hope you'll stick with the basics (aleve, imodium, protein foods nutritional supplements) and allow your opiate receptors to begin to heal. Each of those mind altering chemicals carry their own w/drawal symptoms...
