What is it like when you go through kratom withdrawal symptoms?
Kratom is rapidly gaining popularity in the United States, but what is it? Many people have begun using kratom to self-medicate for chronic pain and opioid withdrawal symptoms. However, it has not been approved for medical use by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, but what is it?
Mitragyna speciosa Korth or kratom is a tropical tree that’s native to Southeast Asia, New Guinea, and the Philippines. The plant has a long history of use by local populations, and 10 to 30 leaves are chewed daily. However, recently it has become available in tablet, liquid, and resin form and ordered online, and it can be highly addictive.
Common kratom withdrawal symptoms include:
- Jerky Movements
- Runny Nose and Watery Eyes
- Muscle Aches
- Dilated Pupils
- Blurred Vision
- Severe Abdominal Cramps
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Decreased Appetite
- Changes In Heart Rate and Blood Pressure
- Sweating, Fever, and Hot Flashes
It’s important to note that detoxing from any substance without professional medical advice is extremely dangerous, and we don’t recommend it. Likewise, abruptly quitting using any compound, including kratom, is not advised as it can cause adverse health reactions.
When you detox with the assistance of professional, your kratom dosage is gradually reduced in conjunction with medications to safely detox you off kratom while reducing the negative side effects of withdrawal symptoms.
