Kratom is very addictive may not be harmful to the body as heroin is or any other opiate substance... I don't think it needs to be outlawed but it needs to be researched before use... Daily use will become an addiction you will have withdrawal... I'm not using it anymore but have found not 100's but 10,000's of people that had the same experience as I... There's the Kratom addiction page on facebook also try looking at kratom addiction blog site these people have also had problems... Educate yourself before trying to say it's an allergic reaction... This stuff is also banned in the very place it is grown!!! I think it's a great sub to get off harder stuff that's about all I think it's good for other than that it's a very addictive herb....View Thread
I will say that kratom was not the best thing to ever come across..I felt great on it.. Almost as if God himself came down from heaven and personally blessed me by his mighty touch..Now Kssziggy I however wasn't taking any other substance just the kratom... I didn't get depressed tell after the first 8 hours of my last dose.. Oh yes I said 8 hours the withdrawal was fast and very complicated.. As of today I have made it to day 4 still feel real tired and the restless leg syndrome is still present...The (RLS) was almost the first system noticed..Other than the walking from one room only to find yourself crying in the next..True story by far the craziest thing ever..But the (RLS) is still happening even on day 4 by far the (RLS) is the biggest pain in the butt..So Kssziggy I'm not sure what your friend is going through as far as taking antidepressants along with kratom..If anything I was more energized a real warm and fuzzy love life lets get er done kinda of affects while using kratom..I do know taking a large amount or a strong dose of kratom will make you very tired... I would suggest to anybody to stay away from the herb...View Thread
