Hi catspaw,

I’ve never heard of this personally being a possibility, nothing I’ve read or heard has claimed this...

I guess anything is possible but I highly doubt that Kratom does this as I take every day , several times a day and in 6-9 gm doses ...

If some one is predisposed for seizures and happen to have one while taking Kratom, I couldn’t say that it was Kratom that caused it .. I’m not a doctor, it’s just my logic

Hope you are well and good to see your post , haven’t seen you around in a while (L)

Tough to answer. Myself never had a problem with seizures, with or without Kratom. I didn't want to give bum advise so I did a little research.

I did a search on Reddit and some thought that it can lower your threshold for seizures but doesn't cause seizures.

One person combined Wellbutrin with Kratom and had seizure/s but chose to discontinue the Wellbutrin and the seizures went away. Yes they chose the kratom over the wellbutrin. Go Figure!

Seemed like the complaints were from over the top users, one guy saying that he took a 30g dose and was going through a kg every two weeks. If you look at the posts on the r/quittingkratom they are over the top bad. But that's what that forum is all about.

My feeling is that Kratom generally doesn't cause seizures but it can rarely be involved, especially with high doses or combined with something else like Wellbutrin that makes you subject to seizures.

By the way there was absolutely no complaints about seizures in light users.

Good to see you posting, Catspaw1955. I hope you are asking for a friend who is just curious.

Let us know how you’re doing now and then? You’re missed...<3

hi laurie and thanks , it is my mamma we have been taking the kratom together for about 8 months, we have had to get off our tranquilizers because you cannot now by law take both oxycodone and the tranks, we chose the oxy,,,,, we do not take the kratom when we have the oxy but we tend to run out early because oh hell we take more per day than prescribe because of the awful pain, i believe she started having kind of seizure like stuff way before we started the kratom though we are having her checked to see if she has senior epilepsy they did a cat scan, are putting her on a heart monitor also, and they are going to do an eeg in a couple of weeks i will keep you all posted.......god bless all here and thankyou for all the wonderful advice you give

I’m sorry to hear your mamma is having health issues and anxiety is obviously high - especially with no tranks. You’re both in my prayers and we really do appreciate hearing from you girls. Give her a hug for me and hopefully things will come out well. Seizures are so scary. <prayers>
