Much good will come out of this epic meeting, I predict.
If you're new to Kratom, this is the spot to ask questions and get more familiar.

First off, I just wanted to say that I'm new o kratom, and I don't have any opioid tolerance.
That being said, my first question is: I'm still dizzy today (about 16 hours later) after taking 1 teaspoon of kratom. Took it last night and rode it out for about 3 hours before falling asleep. Is this normal or did I do too much? I also felt dizzy while I was on it, but it did give me anxiety and when I get anxious I do get dizzy..
Second question: I'm trying to use kratom for anxiety, but with my 1 tsp dose, I felt stimulated and kind of uncomfortable. Definitely didn't feel very relaxed.. did I take too much or not enough..?
And third and final question: I have red vein bali and red vein Borneo. Which one would be better for anxiety..?
Anything would help.. kinda worried because this dizziness is freaking me out.
Thanks

Sorry to hear that. I hate when I get dizzy like that. I think the Borneo might be a little better for anxiety, also I would try a half teaspoon, or maybe even slightly less. Like a real measuring teaspoon, not like a silver ware spoon, not sure what you used. A real measuring teaspoon is roughly 2 grams give or take .1 or .2 grams.
What did you take that made you dizzy and stimulated? Was it one of the two you mentioned you had? Or was it a white or green vein Kratom?

I took the red vein bali. Sorry, I forgot to mention that..
And I do use a measuring teaspoon, not a regular spoon.
Still feel kinda dizzy..

Well I’d hold off until tomorrow before taking anymore. Maybe try a 1/4 teaspoon of the red Borneo and see what happens. You can always take more if it doesn’t do anything. Good luck. That dizziness will go away eventually, I wouldn’t worry about it too much, it’s happened to me several times. Just lay down and try not to move around too much and it’ll go away soon.

Even a day later sometimes..? Sorry I'm a pretty severe hypochondriac, which is one of the major reasons I wanted to try this stuff. Get triggered so easily and it's annoying..
And thank you. I will keep that in mind. How long do the effects typically last because my friend said it's like 2-3 hours..?

Atleast 3 hours for me sometimes up to around 6. The effects kind of slowly fade away usually.

Welcome to the best Kratom forum ever, thejoker125. Those symptoms are classic “honeymoon phase” and kratom does not continue to do that. I had similar issues when I first started, too. Lasted about 36 hours the first couple of weeks. Cut it down to 1/2 tsp and set alarm for 45 mins to an hour. Add another 1/4 tsp if your anxiety is still an issue. Welcome to the learning curve!

In addition, there are ways to stop it NOW that have been posted on other threads. You can do a search about “took too much” or other words to find discussions you’ll find encouraging. I recall the most effective route for me STILL is 1/4-1/2 of a Dramamine tablet. Maybe you’ll luck out and have some handy..

IF NOT, eat a meal. That also knocks out the effects. Just not an avocado or grapefruit (potentiators).

Sounds like OVERALL you will benefit substantially from the leaf. Your receptors are sensitive, so less is more.

Welcome and let us know how you are.

Welcome thejoker125,

Sounds like you might have taken a little too much. Since it's your first time always take really small doses like around 2 grams & nothing higher than 3 grams. I get dizzy as well whenever I have taken too much. When I lower my Dosages back down then I'm fine. Laurie gave you some great advice. Don't get discouraged because the Dizziness shouldn't last much longer. Dramamine, Meclizine & Ginger are good for that. You can take up to 5 grams of Ginger in a 24 hour Period. Hope you get better joker. Dizziness really is awful. :sick:
