I know it's not a miracle plant and that if I do tons of it everyday the effectiveness will wear off...and I know that if I stop cold turkey after using it a lot I'll feel crappy...

But what's so bad about taking it everyday? I used it initially to ease myself off Tramadol (I wasn't addicted I just didn't want to feel any withdrawl from stopping) Then I decided to see if this natural, gentle plant could replace the harsh & sometimes dangerous Xanax & Clonopin I'm prescribed..

And it does! I'm also off my adderall for the first time in 8 years and while I never get an energy boost from Kratom it does curb the intense depression & lethargy I was feeling from stopping Adderall.

I usually take 2 doses of 4g each in a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. It's helping tremendously. From what I've read the withdraw sounds exactly like what I feel NORMALLY without Kratom (depression, insomnia, anxiety, etc). And it seems like tapering will help with withdraw if I were to stop...

So anyway, I don't understand why other boards are filled with people warning not to do it everyday. I'm very new to this. It's only been 2 weeks. Maybe someone could fill me in on what I'm missing? Or if you think it's fine to do everyday could you share your experience?

Thanks!

Hi Lelu,
Welcome to th' board, and to the world of kratom.

I've been using kratom almost daily for about a year. I'm sure I've developed a slight tolerance, but there are ways to mitigate that. And when I run out, the withdrawal is probably more mild than that of coffee withdrawal- I'd be lethargic, slightly depressed, unmotivated, maybe runny nose.

But everybody's different. I'm hoping my kratom brothers and sisters here will chime in with more thoughts.

I've heard that Xanax is absolute hell to withdraw from.
Best of health to you-
Aimee

Hi Aimee!
That's really good to hear. Do you mind me asking how many grams daily? I'm worried that I take more than other people (about 8g a day, sometimes as much as 12g)

Yeah Xanax can be really bad but luckily I took it very sporadically. The adderall withdraw is pretty hard but it was giving me heart problems! I would get dizzy all the time and it wasn't even helping with my ADHD (which I don't think I ever even had)

So yeah... also cute puppies! :x

Hello again Lelu,

I would say that if it is possible, take a day off from Kratom every once and a while to let it flush out of your system and renew the potency of the effects.

If you are to take it everyday, there are ways of avoiding tolerance as Aimee has stated below. Switching strains is often mentioned when it comes to tolerance issues. It seems to me that this would keep the body guessing. There are also different potentiators you could use at different times such as turmeric, pepper, phenibut, and orange juice just to name a few. The last one that comes to mind is switching your dosage daily. This is another good way to keep the body guessing.

Hope that helps a bit!

I've been daily taking about the dosage you're talking about for about 9 months. I take a different strain every day. I have about 10 to 12 strains that I keep in constant rotation. It seems to keep my tolerance relatively low, and I've never had to exceed 10 grams in one day.

I've been taking Kratom for about 7 years now & I always vary my strains. I always take about 3-4 different strains daily then switch the next day. Once you take kratom for awhile you can get some stem & vein powder & take it with any strain of kratom & it will keep your tolerance low. You can also take a couple of days off & just take stem & vein powder then start back with your normal strains for tolerance issues.

I take about 20 grams daily & have never had a problem with Kratom not working for me. I was taking about an ounce a day until I lowered it recently. I take it every 4 hours when I'm awake. I have to do this because I was a raging opiate addict that was using any pill I could get my hands on until I found Kratom which saved my life. I also take my Kratom with either 250mg of Vitamin C or Magnesium for Potentiation Effect. They seem to work good.

I think it's okay to take everyday you just can't get out of control & keep taking more & more thinking that you are going to get better effects with Kratom. Kratom has a ceiling where once you take so much It will not work anymore. With Kratom Less Is More. I have kept my same dose for 5 years & in the past month I have lowered my dose from 7 grams to 5 grams to get the best effects with the smallest dose possible.

I am glad you got off of Xanax, Clononpin & Adderall. They can be bad for you if taken over a period of time & hell to get off of because of Withdrawals. Keep using Kratom you will love it as much as I do. ;)
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

What about Food, Water, Vitamins, Medicine. I have been taking some medications daily for over 6 years under the instructions of many doctors. You can take some things daily but not everything. I have never had any trouble with taking Kratom daily for 7 years. I know I've talked to some Kratom Enthusiasts that have been taking Kratom daily for over 20 Years & they never have had any side effects except for a little Constipation & some Wobbles rarely.

It also depends on the Person. Some people probably can't take Kratom daily because of too many side effects. But most people can take Kratom daily. I have talked to my doctor about daily Kratom use & my doc said that it looked to be safe after he researched it for about a week & talked to others who have been taking Kratom. He was going to recommend Kratom to everybody but I stopped going to my doc so I don't know what happened.
