Agreed. I’m glad you’re aware of that is all. Many people use OJ to avoid the possibility of a contadiction with pharmaceutical meds.

Sounds like you’re doing better. That’s great!

Nice seeing you back on the best kratom forum ever ;-)

Yrs I know about grapefruit juice and the possibility of drug interactions. I have read a lot promoting grapefruit and Kratom mixtures. So far I feel it actually has a positive effect.

Good so far (fingers crossed)!

You DO know about grapefruit juice being contraindicated with many medications, I hope!

Keep in touch. We can all learn something from your experience - a lot of people suffer with gastric discomfort and maybe your posts can help others as well.

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for asking Laurie! I think it might be the protein I taking. Many times I mix the Kratom in my protein shake before my workout. I use it as a “pre-workout” which works far better than expensive other pre-workouts that cause me to feel jittery and “cracked out” haha I started taking mixing the Kratom with grapefruit juice and drinking protein separate and (knock on wood) I havnt had the problems yet!! I’ll keep this updated as to inform people of mixing with protein. Isn’t such a good idea.(at least for me)

Dstarr66,

How’s your stomach cramps? Hope you’re feeling much better. Did you ever resolve a cause, or is it an eternal mystery?

Best wishes! Laurie

Hydration I would rule out first... I’m not saying that some Kratom won’t give you stomach cramps but make sure your getting enough fluids. Somthing I like to do is mix in about a Tbs of chia seeds, (juice of 1/2- 1 lemon optional) & 1/4 tsp sea salt in a 12-16 oz of water and let that sit for about 20 minuets for chia seeds to absorb water ... this is amazing for hydrating and has helped with stomach issues I’ve had. And it tastes good .... delicious and good for you either way ...this is a great way to stay hydrated and get electrolytes .

Then Again it’s possible it’s the batch like Jazzfan mentioned.

Hope your stomach starts to feel better sooner than not

Take care

Jazzfan1- thank you for the response. Here is the thing , I have purchased from the same vendor. I started getting the cramp about the last couple weeks of the kg I first purchased. I purchased another kg from the same vendor but a diff strain. So I’m not sure it the stomach cramps are just rolling over from before or if this strain is causing them since they did start with the previous strain. I never had a prob for almost a month and a half before though. I will contact my vendor, they have been awesome and I’m sure they would help me try and figure it out.

Yes, I have experienced stomach cramps and major discomfort. It seems to only happen when I take a certain vendors Kratom. Also it always happens when I take that kratom in capsule form. Because, Kratom is so different from person to person. I won't mention the vendor of the Kratom that caused me stomach pain/discomfort.
If a certain strain or a certain vendors Kratom causes pain or discomfort. I would stop using it or mix it with other vendors Kratom if you don't want to waste it. This is another good reason to NOT order large quantities of one kind of Kratom.

You could also try contacting the vendor and explaining your situation and see if they will replace it with a different strain. But, please contact them and give them a chance before mentioning that vendor. Give them a chance to work with you.

Has ANYONE else had stomach cramps/pain with karatom use? I’ve been using only 3-4grams 2x daily for about 2 months. Recently more times than not I get horrible stomach cramps that last about 30 -45 mins. What is this!!!????
