Anybody who is willing to share with me (and the forum) how many MONTHS after detox and withdrawal and well into PAWS (post acute withdrawal), you have PERSONALLY experienced. The resources I have found say it's a good 6 months to a year, perhaps a lifetime.
I'm primarily interested in whether others are also having PAWS and how you cope with never ending PAWS.
I'm unable to take my normal dose of Kratom for three days due to an upcoming medical procedure. I'm straining it to stick to the preparation guidelines for my procedure, and it's helping. However, I am not doing well with regard to some of the side effects regarding long term PAWS - issues not directly related to Kratom. THANK YOU!
Laurie

I think it depends on how long you were addicted to the substance, what type of substance & how much of it you were taking. PAWS lasted about 2 - 3 months for me. I went through an Emotional Roller Coaster Ride & my body was shaking a little bit like I had Parkinson's but was from Withdrawal. I mostly just stayed in bed & when I was awake I took a lot of hot showers, watched a lot of TV & Movies & made myself exercise for half an hour to an hour everyday. It just will take some time to get over it but will go away.
If anybody has any Questions regarding Kratom please message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

While in inpatient rehab, they say it could last from 6mo, to a year. For me i am using Kratom this go round, so i am not noticing near the PAW symtpoms as any other time i have quit using. On the days i do not take kratom, i take DLPA dietary supplement to help with regulating emotions and depression, but sometimes insomnia still gets to me, and on those days i try to take a sleep aid. I would recommend the DLPA supplement to anyone suffering from PAWS. You might look into it if PAWS are giving you some trouble, It is supposed to help regulate dopamine levels and serotonin i beleive. It is highly recommended by several recovering addicts in my area. I tried it and it helps me sometimes. It doesnt help as much as Kratom does but helps me to feel normal and still functional during Kratom breaks. And it is fairly cheap. I think St. jons wort does something similar but i have not looked into it much as the DLPA works for me. Hope this helps :-bd

If depression is part of your PAWS it always helps me to remind myself why i am feeling that way and to try and think positive. I know this is easier said than done, just throwing it out there. Stay strong and wish you the best :-bd
