Hello Suz welcome to the forum,

Pull up a chair and join our functional dysfunction , someone one said that lovingly about our group (Laurie?)

Prior opiate pain medication use most likely will have a factor with your dosing. If you are currently using hydrocodone, you might not notice the effects of kratom. If you already tapered down or off I have seen 3 to 4 grams to be the average.(some people higher but its best to find you lowest working dose first) This is very subjective- dosing and strain use are different per individual. We will be here to guide you. If you take more than needed headaches or nausea is common. The recommend starting dose is 2 grams, even though for some this might be too much. but I still recommend 2 grams for non opiate history- higher for having a history.
Taking lyrica - I an mot sure if the guidelines are the same because its a different type of medicine, a Gaba?

Red Bali seems like a good choice for your pain management issues.

More people will be on shortly with a greater insight than I have.

Quick tips.
Drink planty of water with Kratom
Manage digestive issues
Consider using powder(buy a pocket scale for accurate dosing)
add turmeric, or ginger and black pepper along with you pain management dosing.

I take kratom for spinal arthritis-
I take 2.4 grams of Reds at night
I take 1.7 grams of greens during the day
I take powder with turmeric and pepper in plain water and weigh all my doses.
I have little history with pain meds(I used spinal cortisone injections)

If you need more caps options I been keeping a list of approved vendors let me know I will post the links.


Sorry about your injuries, if you stick around you will find a very supportive group that will help you with ideas to manage pain. A polite warning most pain management doctors are not receptive to kratom use, if they test for it or find out they might drop you as a patient.
Good luck

Hey Suz!!

I’m sorry your in pain , I can relate about getting off anti depressants... .One of the worst withdraws I’ve ever experienced, I do believe kratom can be very beneficial for the pain you’re in as well as the withdrawing from both medications, it’s hard to give you some sort of ratio for kratom to equaling hydrocodone effects .. they’re so not the same ...but I can tell you that of anything I’ve tried in my life to help me with my chronic pain and the depression and anxiety that came with it ....kratom is WAY more effective and so much safer incomparably safer than any opiates out there ..

My first week of taking kratom I stopped my antidepressants/ cold turkey ...DONT DO THAT !!wean and introduce kratom while weaning off your medications ... since I started taking kratom I have zero desire for any opiates, where before kratom I’d always welcome them ..

I’d try a few diff reds and perhaps some greens and gold varieties ... here’s a few vendors I be really enjoyed and had great success with..

Approved ILK vendors :
InSense/GoldLeaf Botanical
Otie’s Botanical
Nature’s Cure

Some non ILK approved vendors that I absolutely love
Benni Botanical
Lucky Herbal’s
SofloKratom
Fused Flora

More folks will add to this conversation, we will totally help in whatever way we can! This is the best kratom forum you stumbled upon, beautiful caring folks trying to find ways to help alleviate ailments ... kratom for a lot of us simply is the best tool (or one of them )that we’ve found !!

Brandon
Life is better with kratom !

Hi there ! Thank you for welcoming into this forum !

I have been on a high dose of hydrocodone/apap for several years, due to injuries sustained after I was hit by a semi.

I have a broken tailbone that never healed. Two broken ribs never healed either. Jaw broken causes lots of headaches. Also fractured several lower back discs and the nerve damage is super intense. Also developed severe mybromyalgia.

Note...after my pain management doc decided to lower dose of pain relief, I was put on the world’s most horrid drug...Lyrica.

I am trying to wean off of Lyrica now, and with the lack of opioid medication, plus the Lyrica withdrawals, the pain is horrendous.

I would consider myself very opioid tolerant but not addicted.

Red Bali Kratom capsules were recommended to me. But I have no idea how many to take to get the same pain relief I did with my opioid medication. Relaxation and sedation would also be helpful because I now have terrible insomnia. The insomnia is due to the weaning of Lyrica, not from lack of hydrocodone/apap. I cannot deal with stimulants, though !

I would welcome any suggestions here ! I’m in a great deal of pain and very wide awake but find lack of sleep quite debilitating !

Thank you so much !
