I think 1 tsp is a great starting point for you ... I wait at least 4 hrs before taking more ...my dose has been 2 tsp for a while now, used to be 1Tbs.... if your finding you need to take more .. try s slightly bigger dose next time around ..
1-1/2 tsp -2tsp.... this is a fine tuning process that will take some time but… Just take some experimenting to see what works best for you, taking more while you’re in your transition off of your meds… I feel is totally acceptable that’s what works best for you and then once you’re off your meds you can you tone down your intake of kratom... I try to keep it down to 4 x a day ... Please keep us posted, good job my friend

That plan sounds excellent to me, BF! Many people have been happily surprised at the relief by using just kratom first to see how it goes...

I’m so sympathetic to your plight! To this day, I also wake free of pain, depression, anxiety etc and then it starts to get difficult rather quickly...

I’ll be interested to hear how things go in the morning!

Been watching and reading a lot of posts on Kratom, seems there are many different views on how to take this plant. I thank you that you are a group that supports someone like me that is experimenting to find what will work. I know I sleep better than ever since taking Kratom with "Pleasant Dreams" that's a first in a long time. I wake up in the morning completely set free of withdrawals but unfortunately that does not last. I take Green Maeng Da, never tried any other kind. I have been going real slow 1 tsp maybe not even I just eyeball it.

I had been a little afraid of Kratom as I said in an earlier post that after a couple months I just quit taking Kratom and could not understand why I felt so bad, I upped the Tramadol right away and stabilized within about 1 week. I now know I can not just stop Kratom like that but I do not fear the withdrawal type it gives as it seem pretty mild and does not last that long.

Tomorrow is a new day I am going to try taking 1 heaping tsp right away in the morning and hold off on the Tramadol. Want to see if the withdrawal comes on and is as intense, hopefully not!!! I have a question is 1 tsp of Kratom allot and could I be so bold as to take that much 4-5 times per day if I leave the Tramadol out of the equation. Thank you for your support.

I agree with Laurie , seems like your approach is working ,so far so good ...I’d say keep it up while continuing the taper !! Also like Laurie said , it’s the taking tramadol and kratom at the same time that is not recommended , but taking kratom later 1-3 hrs later and or substituting a tramadol dose for a kratom dose when you can get to that point of the taper. ... all furthering the elimination of this med... No medical advice here , you are the best person to gauge how it’s working out . I wasn’t very familiar with what tramadol was until I heard more and more folks being prescribed this med ... which to my understanding has a ssri type of effect combined into the opiate part of the med..



Be kind to yourself and stay hydrated and submerge yourself in activities that make you happy and get plenty of rest when you can ... transitioning off most meds are a challenging endeavor , I believe your going about it in a very good way !! From the sound of it , your making great progress, def give yourself that :) (L)

Hi BF,

I’m on my way out the door, but wish to ENCOURAGE YOU on this journey. It sounds like you are doing well by taking one, THEN the other, and repeat. This is recommended and has been done safely by others here before you.

Tramadol is a nasty medication and we are not medical specialists. But so long as you do not mix them simultaneously, do not worry about your kratom dose size needed and proceed because you’ll have an easier time adjusting your kratom dose down AFTER you’ve completed your medication wean and DITCH THAT STUFF.

Please remember that pain management clinics do not support kratom use and they might ban you for even mentioning it. Transparency is not best with politics such as monetarily driven pain management clinics.

I hope you have a relaxing strain because weaning does aggravate anxiety levels and your post also indicates you’re having anxiety and not feeling the support. You HAVE OUR SUPPORT and anxiety is a nasty side effect of weaning. Try to remember it is NOT based on actual reality and ride it out with soothing music or anything you have to help you tolerate unfounded anxiety.

I hope you continue to do well and you are NOT ALONE!
Laurie

Hello; Not too many people have spoke on using Kratom while tapering dependence on Tramadol(Opioid Use). Is this because it is unheard of or maybe I am one of the rare ones that cant seem to quit cold turkey. Kratom has seemed to help my in-between dosage of Tramadol as I slowly cut down on the Tramadol. Maybe its not the right way to go about this but it seems to help for me. I have been tapering from Tramadol 3 times per day and adding 1 tsp Kratom in between dosages. Can anybody speak to me on this I hope it is an alright method, maybe my next step should be cutting the Tramadol in half and adding Kratom at the same time. Seems many think the less Kratom use is better but I seem to be in a great struggle here. Thank you, BF
