Does anybody know if there are any adverse side effects from taking kratom if you are already on a blood pressure medication. I would like to know if anybody has any good solid information on this subject because I offered some kratom to an older man in his early 60's that takes blood pressure medication. He got off of xanax recently for anxiety, he took his last pill the other day, he was on it for about 3 weeks for coming off of alcohol and doesn't want to go back on any prescription pills. But he takes blood pressure meds, so I need to know some info. Thank you

Kratom contains an alkaloid that was used to make a new blood pressure medication. Kratom tends, therefore, to lower BP by itself. This gentleman may find he won't need the medication anymore.

I can't give medical advice, but what I would do would be lower my dose of the medication gradually as I was introducing kratom into my regimen. I have seen many people do this safely.

Cool, thank you Paul, I appreciate the info. I just didn't want anything bad to happen if he were to take the kratom with the meds. I will let him know what's up.
