Kratom for Anxiety and Depression

During my rotation in the Psychiatry ward, I came across a patient who was on prescription medication for depression for the past five years. I asked him if he was compliant, to which he answered he was. Next, I asked him the reason why he wasn’t getting off medications. He told me he wasn’t observing any improvement. I checked his previous medicine files and surprisingly I saw that he was being given stronger anti-depressants every 6 to 9 months, which have way more side effects than the common anti-depressants like SSRIs and SNRIs.

The side effects had adversely affected his lifestyle and he wanted to hold on to something, to anything that helped him survive the day. This is when he talked to me about observing some improvement recently.

He spoke to me about Kratom and definitely as a doctor I became curious. I looked at research to read about this substance and found articles linking to the efficacy of Kratom in the management of Anxiety, Stress and Depression.

Does Kratom have medicinal value?

If you’ve happened to keep up with the media’s reports on Kratom over the last year, you may have noticed one similar, recurring statement in all of them that sounds something like “Kratom has not been found to carry any medicinal value.” How could this possibly be? These news and government organizations are trying to tell me that despite the use of this plant for 100’s of years and the countless success stories that can be found on the internet today for its multiple uses, not a single person has thought to actually test Kratom out in a laboratory setting? No way I say, so I took it upon myself to figure this out. About 60 seconds later I found a site with 10 different research papers written over the last 30 years, which I’ve linked to at the bottom of this article. Reading through them, I found out quite a bit of interesting information.

Make the most of your Kratom! What many newbies don’t know about Kratom is there are tons of ways to get the most out of it and for whatever effect they need.

Over the counter and Pharmaceutical

Kratom has been dominating the news lately. The argument is whether or not to keep it a legal food supplement or move it into a scheduled category of narcotics. We don’t seem to be hearing anything in regards to a compromise. A compromise which satisfies all parties concerned.

What we’re seeing now is knee jerk reaction which is not uncommon to food supplements. Many may be unaware of how many household items have gone through this. For example, Ginko Biloba had its challenges. Most vitamin supplements that we all buy weekly at the local market have had challenges.
