Hey, welcome! Odd question but you aren't by chance following a really low carb or keto diet? I've never had any dehydration issues with Kratom but several months back I tried keto and ended up becoming really dehydrated. Kinda random but I'm curious if it might be something besides the Kratom. Either way, I hope you get to feeling better soon! :)

Thanks Michele,
Well I'm a confirmed popcorn addict,and I always like some Sea Salt on my Air popped popcorn, so that should help. I just worry about the whole "Electrolyte Imbalance" issue with dehydration, that's why I've been drinking the Pedialyte.

I'm actually a native New Yorker, moved to Arizona in 2007, but I don't know if I'll ever get used to the crazy weather out here...we go straight from "winter" around 30 degrees at coldest, then it shoots right back up to 91 degrees, like it is today.

I don't go out alot, so I don't physically exert myself that much...I guess I just have to get used to drinking a boat load of water all the time!
Thanks :)

hey desert girl welcome! I wish I could help you more ive only been taking kratom about 10 weeks and im in Ct so I have yet to experience summer kratom dosing. never mind in Az! of course you live in Az so you have to hydrate. keep on you/ in your car salty snacks like cheddar crackers or something. im a sucker for those electrolyte drinks sometimes but really its better to take any natural juice, add a little salt and about a cup of water and it works just as well without all the sugar, or chemical sweeteners if u buy the diet. and lot cheaper! but yeah max is the man that knows his shirt lol

Hello All,
I've only been taking Kratom for about 3 months now, but I'm finding that I seem to be incredibly sensitive to dehydration with Kratom (of course alot of this may have to do with the fact that I live in Tucson, Az, where the weather is ALWAYS dry, dry, dry.) So that doesn't help.
But I find if I take more than about 6-8grams in a day, I go into a really bad dehydration drop. Muscle Weakness, loose stool, I can barely get out of bed. All I want to do is sleep because I'm so exhausted and depleted.
I actually had to go to my local Emergency Room and get hooked up to fluids for a few hours to replenish me a couple of weeks ago.
It was scary.
I'm a person who drinks water constantly throughout the day, and ever since my trip to the E.R. I'm now in the routine of drinking Pedialyte every day to ward off dehydration. It helps, but I was just wondering if anyone else has this kind of sensitivity to Kratom?
I was thinking of taking something to help potentiate the Kratom (Like Tumeric & Black pepper) so I wouldn't have to take more than 6g or so a day, but will potentiating the Kratom just make the dehydration stronger too?

The last time I was here, MadMaxKnightRider was kind enough to post a bunch of helpful info on avoiding dehydration...but even with taking Fish oil supplements, Vit.D, my Pedialyte and drinking lots of water,
I'm still afraid to take more than 6gms of Kratom a day without it throwing me into a Dehydration tailspin where I can barely get out of bed due to fatigue and muscle weakness.
6 grams a day seems to be my "limit".
By the way, when I was in the Emergency room they did a full blood workup on me and the only thing that was "off" was my sodium level was low. Which was to be expected, as I was so dehydrated. Otherwise, all was normal.
So there's no other physical/health issue here that I can see.

Is it possible to just be "too sensitive" to higher doses of Kratom?
What do most people here take a day in terms of grams?
How do you take it?
Is it best to take a larger dose in the morning and then smaller doses later on, like 3grams at noon, and another 3 grams at night...something like that?
I appreciate everyone's help here, thank you ! :cheer:
