you all have been so helpful here. a very close friend is on methadone and I don't think she can take kratom. am I correct? if that is the case I would welcome any suggestions of things she can take for pain because she cant take any nsaids. we all know Tylenols ok but barely takes the edge off. I just started researching things thanks to help of madmax, thank you again! >:D

To my knowledge, you CAN use kratom to get off methadone in the exact same way as using it to get off suboxone.

It won’t work well taking BOTH at the same time.
They tickle the same brain receptors.

Eventually people find kratom MORE EFFECTIVE at pain relief, but one must choose, yes. Can’t do both, you are correct.

Please post corrections here if I’m mistaken.

As usual Laurie is right.

I was on a chatboard the other night and a woman was substituting Kratom for her dose of Methadone and/or lowering the dose of the Methadone.

Can't remember the details, but she was definitely using Kratom to get off of Methadone.

yeah she would not get off methadone im looking for a an addition to if you will. an example, if she doses once a day early morning about 24 hrs apart could she take kratom before bed and I give her some caps of red to help her sleep? I realize theres no kratom doctor lol but 12 hrs apart might be ok just need others opinions. of course don't want to suppress breathing ect its just a unique situation. I also have shilajit and a couple other natural supplements coming. ill test on myself on a day off/ non kratom day to see if they work on their own

I agree with you, Michele373. 12 hours apart MIGHT be of some use to your friend. More worthwhile than Tylenol, I suspect. The only way to be sure is to try.
