namely, what would they be if any ?


I have read a fair bit about Kratom(that i could find any way) and it really points to it being quite safe,

although i did read one person stating that it may have caused his brother Jaundice and very dark urine(liver problems ?)


and perhaps there is health issue relating to long term chronic use,

does anyone here no if there would be any toxic affects to say the liver with kratom use ?

in non habitual use is it quite safe ?

I have read if you have it more or less daily for an extended period of time ( I think this is more in the several years range) your face can develop a yellow pigment.

As for liver issues, you would have to go all out and even then, kratom is not going to be quick to mess with your liver. Tylenol is a bigger risk.

Non-habiltually kratom is a relatively safe drug compared to most other drugs discussed on here.

so this yellow pigment, im assuming this is caused by liver issues, or not ?

its seems pretty well documented, but im just sort of confused that it's not being linked to liver problems, dark urine and even dark stools ive read about,

im starting to wonder if this stuff is really that safe ?

there is a post here in trip reports where a user experienced what would be most likely hepatic symptoms,

but in my limited knowledge/search of this substance it just seems there is no information on possible risks of taking this stuff.

Kratom is a bit like a research chemical in the sense that it is very new to Western culture (and most cultures I know of) and therefore hasn't been researched thoroughly, if at all. But you are right about the side-effects you mentioned.

All I could find, from erowid.com: (http://www.erowid.org/plants/kratom/kratom_journal3.shtml)

Long term addicts become thin, their skin darkens, particularly in the face on both cheeks which gives an appearance similar to a hepatic face. Dryness in the mouth is common as well as frequent micturition and often constipation. Some mention that the faeces are black and tend to be small in shape similar to goat faeces (Norakarnphadung, 1968). Withdrawal symptoms include, for example, hostility, aggression, flow of tears, wet nose, inability to work, aching in the muscles and bones, jerky movement of the limbs. These are all typical symptoms of kratom addicts [And puppies - lol]

There can be additional problems with todays kratom users, due to the fact that the majority of them consume large amounts of leaf while the users in that study chewed on fresh leaves. It includes digestive problems, hard and large stool (sounds unpleasant, doesn't it?), and for people who use the toss-n-wash method of throwing powder in their mouth and sipping it down, powder can build up in the lungs.

Boys and girls, EVERYTHING goes through the liver...and in turn affects the kidneys as well. BE CAREFUL...and give it a rest/take a brake (I PROMISE you will not die from the withdrawl). Give yourself and your body a rest from that, please if your at that point.

As well YOU KNOW better than anybody how you feel...just listen to you body basically/pay attention to what the body tells you. Analyse (just with your eyes) your urine (as well as frequency and how it feels, for example: does it hold you back like opioids do (retention)....when I started using big time after about 40mg oxycodone without the Tylenol but with the Tylenol it's 2 times as bad, I would have a hard time urinating even sitting down and it would take about half hour). This means the kidneys are affected as well as the liver of course. As well when you take a shit, look at the feces.....see what colour it is, see if there is blood in it, see if it looks soft or hard (u can tell b/c if your constipated it usually comes out hard...and soft or liquid even in the case of diarreah). Look at your skin....that is an important indication too, follow up everyday and see any differences (pimples, etc).

It's for your own good....please do what you think is best/right for the health of your body. Trust me when I say that it's not worth loosing your health over something like Kratom (you know that just as well though).

does it hold you back like opioids

My urine isn't strong enough to hold me back!!


when I started using big time after about 40mg oxycodone

Not to dicksize here, but that's not remotely 'big time'- 1st time users can take that much without too much problem (it's a bit too high, though).


without the Tylenol but with the Tylenol it's 2 times as bad,

That's not true. Oxycodone is not hard on the body at all. "Two times as bad" is entirely made up. The tylenol can be hard on the liver, but not usually.


I would have a hard time urinating even sitting down and it would take about half hour). This means the kidneys are affected

No, actually it doesn't mean your kidneys are affected. It has nothing at all to do with they kidneys. Do you have any idea how your organs work? It goes kidney -> bladder -> out through the urethra. Once you have to pee, the kidney's don't have much to do with urinating. I don't know the exact mechanism behind delayed urination caused by opiates, but it has something to do with depressed central nervous system activity. It may be that when the CNS is depressed by opiates, a muscle in the process doesn't work quite correctly.

I don't personally think that's the cause, though. I think it's mental, to be honest. I have the same problem, and all it takes is sitting down, the fan on and maybe the water running to solve it. A book helps, too.


as well as the liver of course.

Do you have any idea what you're talking about? What does urination have to do with the liver?

Opiates, including oxycodone, are about as benign as you can get.


As well when you take a shit, look at the feces.....see what colour it is, see if there is blood in it, see if it looks soft or hard (u can tell b/c if your constipated it usually comes out hard...and soft or liquid even in the case of diarreah).

Wow... This is getting moronic. The color of your feces has more to do with what you've eaten than anything. If you have blood in your feces, it's indicative of a problem not related to opiate use. If it's hard, you need to drink more water and take more fibre.


Look at your skin....that is an important indication too, follow up everyday and see any differences (pimples, etc).


What exactly do you hope to glean from looking at your skin every day? Pimples are indicative of anything related to toxicity. Nothing at all.

If you notice that your skin is yellowing, get help. If you've got pimples? Get ProActive, for fucks sake.

That entire post is moronic pseudoscience.

There's nothing to indicate that kratom is hepatoxic or renotoxic. It may be, but there's no research proving that. It's more likely that there's some other mechanism.

That entire post is moronic pseudoscience.Yes, some people seem to get a kick out of posting utter rubbish.

To return to kratom, I've just received my first consignment. Glad it made it through customs. It says "Kratom resin Bali 25g". I intend to take a hefty dose (the lot?) to be able fairly to assess this "legal high". Should I reckon with vomiting? I'm an easy vomiter on H or DXM, which are opiates. Maybe I should take one metoclopramide tablet to prevent that?

I had the worst urine retention ever on Kratom. Much worse than heroin or codeine. But then, I wasn't prepared for it at all; and I had taken a massive dose. (The woman who gave it to me told me it was about 6 grams. Unusually for me, i didn't weigh it. It was more like 16 grams).

I was in agony all night and woke up having pissed blood. Not much, but enough to scare the fucking shit out of me and stay away from opiates for a long time.

One problem with Kratom is that it isn't very standardised yet. Some leaf can contain a shit load of mytragyna speciosa, some not much. So, if you took 25 grams of the kind of shit i took, say goodbye to your bladder, and get thee to a hospital and get a catheter shoved down your cock.

Try 6 grams first.

Try 6 grams first.Thanks a lot bro, I'll do just that! I suppose I should also reckon with constipation.

I wonder whether when all is said and done so-called "legal highs" (including highs that are not even highs at all) do not kill or hurt more people than do hard drugs.

I have been taking Kratom daily for about a year now...but I take small doses.

I usaully end up taking about 15-20 grams a day.

I heard somebody say that tossing it your mouth might be worse for you than drinking the tea?? is that true? I dont feel bad after taking this stuff so is it harming me or not?

Well I spend about 100 bucks a month on it. Its not that bad.

Is the powder the same as the crushed leaf?

I like Kratom on an irregular basis. I find it very relaxing and it keeps me away from mj and booze.

It's not really a high as such, more a gentle sedation, depending on dosage.

The one main bitch I have with it is the rock hard compacted, oversized turds, which bust my friggin ringpeice. This on it's own prevents me from doing it every day. Not to mention the potential for addiction.

What the long term affects are though, I'll have to wait and see.

If you like Kratom, you'll love it!

06-01-2009, 22:29
I order 16oz for like 130 bucks....usaully take 2 teaspoons in the morning and two more in the afternoon....it gives me energy and relaxes me at the same time. Yes when I quit taking it I feell like I have a bad cold- muscles ache...but its not horrible. I think a kilo is 200.

I think the key is to eat alot of friut so the turds dont get to hard....but yeah that is one side effect.

midwestman
06-01-2009, 22:31
I just got some crushed leaf so I can have a glass of tea every now and then. The powder is much easier though.

I just dont want to harm my liver....is it supposed to be bad? Ive been using it for about 15 months now and I feel fine.

I have been using kratom every other day for quite a few months now, and haven't noticed any of the negative side effects I hear about. Possibly it is because I use it in small doses (~4g is enough for me), and also it may be because I wouldn't qualify as a long-term subject.

I haven't had any of the short-term effects either, no troubles with constipation (like on hydro or oxy), moderate nausea but that is easily taken care of by popping an antihistamine beforehand (and I have nausea on EVERYTHING)... I personally feel like it is relatively safe.

Long term addicts of anything look like death- I don't think the description above is accurate of casual kratom users. Look at alcoholics with Thiamin deficiency.. but we consider casual use of alcohol safe..

the only health issue ive had from doing kratom the few times ive done it is a terrible headache and a horrible feeling knowing ive just wasted my money on the crap.

Poppy pod tea is soooooooo much better than kratom why even bother with the stuff?

Obviously pods are going to be better. I think one of the bigger draws to kratom is that it's completely legal. Granted, ordering pods is relatively safe, but still illegal.

If your skin does develop a yellow pigment, you are indeed damaging your liver severely. Jaundice is caused by liver damage.

Does anyone else experience any bloating / gas or other extremely unpleasent G.I. side effects from this stuff? I really enjoy it, but the giant bubbles in my stomach get so uncomfortable. I take some smiethicone (phayezyme) but it doesn't seem to help as much as I would like. Any suggestions?

^I just did kratom for the second time (7 grams of kratom applesauce) and i am having crazy bubbles in my stomach also. would taking gas-ex before kratom stop this? it's really annoying and uncomfortable.

Yes, in a small subset of users, Kratom can most certainly cause serious hepatic health complications.

I have been in and out of the hospital for several months now because of it. Decided to try it, liked it, and did it fairly regularly (2-3 x a week) at about 10g a dose. I developed jaundice, extreme liver enzyme levels on several counts (Alkaline Phosphatase 447-570, Aspartate Aminotransferase 375-460, Alanine Aminotransferase 685-834, Urine Bilirubin 6.0, Direct Urine Bilirubin 5.3). Also developed severe RUQ pain approx 6-8hrs post-dose each use.

Needless to say I stopped as soon as I realized the connection between the ingestion of the herb and the symptoms.

If you are taking this medication (it is a medication - whether in herbal form or not), then please do so with the support of a health care provider - or at least pay to get some liver panels done directly after dosing (within 24-48 hrs). If you must lie, tell your doctor you were taking Hydroxycut or another one of those type of dietary supplements which are known to cause liver damage in some people, or tell him you noticed some yellowing of the eyes and skin which spontaneously resolved after the weekend. Whatever it takes to get it done, it's worth it.

If you're killing your liver, it's better to find out about it sooner rather than later. I'm glad I found the link early, or in ignorance I could have caused a much larger problem like chronic liver disease.

Not everyone will have this particular issue, some people may take this plant completely symptom-free, and liver enzymes may remain normal. But is that you? How do you know? And how do you know for sure? Just get a quick blood test at the lab and voila! - instant peace of mind. Too easy.

Good luck to all with this plant. I adore it, but alas, I must admire from afar.

Kratom stops me from ejaculating. I can get erect, but cannot come. for ages.

I ask myself, what effect does it have on testosterone?

Possibe impotence given enough usage?

Personally I take it less than once a week, same dosage every time. Weak now, but I am not going to build ahabit. Maybe once a month will have to do. Still there are plenty of other things out there.

Drinking a lot of water and eating prunes or dates seems to help with the hard turds and constipation. At least for me it does.

I find Maeng da kratom far more euphoric and useful than poppy pod tea. Pod tea makes me feel pretty sick, while kratom feels much cleaner.

I've used it quite a bit over the past few months (not every day). So far I've noticed no side effects though my eyes seem more sensitive to light. If I remember correctly that is a common side effect. I did use daily for a short period and when I quit i didn't feel so good. I had headaches and got the shits....

yes, poppy pods are the first choice, but recent crop failures have pushed a lot of poppy users(as myself) to kratom. I find it enjoyable and easy enough to take if you throw it in some gel caps.

been taking about 14g a day (2 doses of 7g usually) and have noticed increased urination, slight constipation(as with opioids) and occasional headaches during the high, but may be unrelated.

withdrawl is nothing if you have gone through methadone or severe poppy withdrawl. If you havent, feels like a bad cold for a few days(3-5) and maybe some diarrhea, which is easily countered with some OTC meds. I have seen a post on here of an herbal supplement you can take to ease these symptom, but cant find it now.(if anyone knows what im talking about, i would love a repost. started with a P)

all in all, I have not had much trouble with kratom, and enjoy the high it produces.

I use kratom about every 2-3 days, normally one 10g dose per day. I used pods all last summer, my tolerance built up extremely quickly, and I decided to stop. Went through a slight withdrawal, but nothing too bad. After a few months break, I wanted to have some again and as stated above, they're nearly impossible to get, so I started with kratom. I've been using it now for about 4 months, and I have not yet noticed any issues from it. It doesn't make me constipated like other opiates do. Pods plugged me up for days.

There's a method I have to my kratom use though, I wonder if it has anything to do with my luck I've had so far. I'm super strict with my usage, never two days in a row, never re-dose, never more than 10g. I also take 400mg cemetidine about an hour before dosing every time. Lastly, I always eat something absorbent before I drink the kratom mixed with orange juice. Otherwise, I get nauseous.

Having said all that, I do feel addiction creeping up on me. I'm most likely going to slow down and eventually discontinue my usage over the next month or so.

Maybe you are thinking about the chemical Phenibut (beta-phenyl-gamma-aminobutyric acid)? This is good for Kratom WD as it helps with the anxiety and sleep. Also, small doses of DXM helps.

I know this thread is old but I would like to share my expierience.

I've been using kratom for 3 years on a daily basis.

Twice a day I mix 2.5 grams (digital scale that I calibrate) of 15x with vitamin water and drink it down.

I have no side effects to speak of except for occasional headaches. I do want to say I do eat pretty healthy and exercise regularly.

I have PTSD from three tours of duty in Iraq and kratom has helped from being unable to leave my own home to having a completely normal life. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't find it. Before I tried kratom the doctors tried giving me every strong anti-depressant they could prescribe and honestly I think those would have done more damage long term.

Not everyone will have the same experiences but I felt it was important to share mine :)

ymmv

i give Kratom a solid rating; however, one must not make the mistake of thinking that it can be abused without consequence.

i developed a 4-5 gram a day habit (Maeng da Thai caps) over a period of two months and thought everything was golden (that it was a great substitute for hard liquor at the end of a work day) until i started getting stomach sensitivity (including bowl movement irregularity), headaches and dizzyness. the headaches were a combination of pain/pounding, tickling and dizzyness.

does anyone out there understand what is going on physiologically when you get that cranial tickling dizzyness sensation? cant be good.

anyway, great stuff (esp when combined with booze) but should only be done irregularly to give the body time off.

Good to hear, I get similar results as well! It is more like a true anti-depressant IME than typical opioids...

I couldn't resist commenting on this as well.

I have been using kratom for 1.5 years now, at roughly 14-16 grams/day and I have never upped my dose. I did, however, cut my dose in half for a few months (I experienced no w/d).

Over time, you do lose some of the magic and longevity of effects that kratom offers, but I find it still has a great effect and anxiolytic properties that I look for.

I have went through bouts of extract use and those are the forms of kratom that will sky rocket your tolerance and your wallet. If I use extracts for longer then a night or two, I will not be able to feel plain leaf that well for about a week.

Anyways, my point being is that I have been using kratom for a year and a half, mostly plain leaf, and feel as if I have had zero negative side effects. It is however an opioid to some degree so what works for me, may not work for you. In terms of harm reduction though, Kratom is worlds better than full agonist opioids, IMHO.

I've used kratom HEAVILY for a good number of years now and have no ill-effects...my health has never been better, in fact.

So long as one is healthy in other aspects of life (diet is clean, exercise is frequent, sleep is solid, body is hydrated) then I see no problems with Kratom use (personally) especially as it harbours many health benefits of it's own.

It is without a doubt the best Anti-Depressant out there...very clean mood elevation.

Wow... This is getting moronic. The color of your feces has more to do with what you've eaten than anything.
And eating (or drinking) a lot of kratom will turn them green, all right =D. Nothing harmful about it tho, as far as I can tell. The chlorophyll might even be good for you.

You can definitely develop chronic constipation on long-term, high dose kratom, without a question... just as you can with opiates. That isn't healthy, I can tell ya, although I don't think it's dangerous either.

Kratom is actually an effective colon-cleanser for many. I've never ever experienced constipation in all the years and through all the kilo's and kilo's and kilo's of the stuff.

I'd really like to know what is behind the claims of yellowish skin, if it has been reported outside of the Thai studies...

The people they interviewed were poor thai farmers and could have had yellow skin for any number of reasons. I've never seen it reported anywhere else.

I have personally used kratom multiple times a day (mostly extracts like FST) for years and my skin is not yellow. I don't feel all that unhealthy either. For reference, I did also use leaf daily for a few months but the bulk of my use was FST.

Who knows though, I haven't had any liver tests done so maybe I'm fucked even though I feel healthy enough.

I've recently turned to Kratom, Tramadol, and O-Desmethyltramadol as substitutes for a two year Oxy habit. I'm permanently off Oxy as I have no real way of ever getting it again (probably for the better), and I love Tramadol and M-1 when I have them. Kratom is the one thing I can constantly get my hands on and it's been a godsend. Hearing reports of people being put into liver failure from the plant though is alarming. Even if it's rare, like Tramadol related seizures, if the causality is there (Kratom--> liver failure in select users), it makes me nervous to ingest the herb as frequently as I have been.

I almost wish I hadn't searched "Kratom health issues" just now on google. >_>

i discovered i was more successful PUSHING the urine out, rather than waiting (yep, me too - sometimes half an hour). now i'm talking about when i clearly need to but can't pee. i dont know y it took so long to try it(pushing, steadily and w/gusto), except in the past it was a pooping thing, rather than peeing.
also, when i contracted HEP C my skin didn't turn yellow, but my eyes did. the first [visual] symptoms however were dark urine and light stool. and i'm talking about dark pee like the color of COFFEE, and poop the color of PAPER.
naturally i did what any intelligent, well educated person wud do, and asked another iv user [guess mom wasn't home]. he promptly diagnosed me, correctly, with HEP C. i got a 2nd opinion at the ER, which i mention because until *the tests came back the er docs thought it could be TYLENOL OD. Then...was it gall bladder trouble? i think so. this is like 25 yrs ago. they were trying to remember/remind each other of the requirements, recalling F's: female forty fat fertile and...and...and.... They kept getting stuck there til i offered helpfully, "..um..family?"
so never never rely on qualified-not certified people when it's yr health. even tho the docs were wrong and the addict correct, you cud panic over symptoms
tha belong to an entirely different cause. the helpful addict assured me i'd be dead-n-buried in months, if not minutes, but 1 doc, who also had hep c, gave a more realistic. and in my case optinistic. after interferon my levels have been fine.
*bld tests can come back positive sometimes, neg. others fot hep c. optimistic

I've been using crushed plain leaf Kratom about once or twice daily for about 2 months now. Started every few days, once or twice a week, worked up to once a day, and have occasionally taken it twice a day but have essentially capped my overall intake at about 3-10grams/day, whether all in one morning dose, or split between two doses. I haven't noticed any ill-effects while on the substance, just bliss, relaxation, and focus in my schoolwork. I have tried taking a few days off every few weeks to listen to my body and see if I feel any withdrawal-type symptoms, but thus far I have not. However, I have noticed that on many days when I don't take it I feel as though I would like to, and very much miss the good feelings it offers.

The potential negative liver effects are surprising and unnerving but I feel perfectly healthy, exercise, drink lots of water, and get as much sleep as I can being a college student.

As someone on probation due to marijuana possession, kratom has been a lifesaver in offering a legal, comfortable alternative to relax and have a higher quality of life again after completing 8 out of 12 months of probation.

I've been using kratom once every 2-3 days for over a year now and I have no health issues that I know about. Kratom is near the top of my list of favorite drugs because it is so versatile and there is no hangover or negative effects whatsoever (for me anyway). It's great for either chilling or working because you can think clearly and feel great at the same time. It also makes sex last forever and works well for pain relief. It basically the drug that's good for anything.
