Kratom to ween off of 1mg habit

How to stop Suboxone? How long should I be on buprenorphine? Is Suboxone withdrawal bad? How do I detox?

Kratom to ween off of 1mg habit

Post by Doggo31 » Tue Sep 01, 2020 9:34 am

Hi all,

I’m just looking for a straight answer. I have weened down to 1mg, maybe a little less.

I havent taken a sub since last Thursday and have been supplementing with small amounts of Kratom to get through the rough patches.

My question is simple, can this work? If I only Do kratom for a week or so is it going to cause withdrawal symptoms?

My ONLY desire is to be rid of anything in my body, subs, kratom, anything ay all and I’m trying to do this as painlessly as possible because I work full time and have people that depend on me.

Kratom has activity at the MU receptor. You are merely postponing the withdrawal.
It is tough to taper with Kratom as dose is not dependent on how much product you are using do to variances in growing and production.
Kratom has various effects depending on dose, a landmine for folks that are dealing with addiction.

Thank you for your input on kratom. It is something that I have been considering and I really can't find a whole lot of information about it. Have you tried kratom ?

So my plan is to use it for about a week while the sub gets out of my system and to gradually ween from the Kratom - which I’ve done before. My understanding is that in order for it to have any considerable withdrawal effects, it must be used in high doses.

I am 6 days off now, and definitely feeling some of the effects of the sub leaving, but the kratom had helped tremendously.

I am Going to dose accordingly with where my sub W/D’s are and gradually reduce the kratom.

I really cannot see a problem with this method, if you are doing it for the right reasons.

While you may not see a problem with it, it does just kinda seem counter-intuitive. Especially with the risks and side effects involved.

So what was your intent with the first post, trolling?
Why are you having to do this again? Relapse, why didn't it work the first time.
Maybe I am reading to much into this, if so, I am sorry but the tone from your first post to the latest is quite different.

And just going by your own statements, you said you want to use it for about a week...

but also ween down gradually. That's going to be more than a week, there's no beating around the bush and trying to kid yourself about it.

No not trolling at all, a little confused as to where you’re seeing that type of post.

It will most likely take longer than a week but my plan is the same.

I did not relapse, I was taking suboxone for the wrong reasons, energy mostly, but then my body began to reject it and so did I because I’m tired of feeling the way I do off of even 2 mg. So I want Nothing more than to be off of them now.

Today is day 7 without subs, I took Kratom yesterday morning and afternoon, and managed to get a full night sleep without an evening dose, which I’d used on previpus days. I did wake up with restless legs and used a bit this morning to get rid of those. This is going to be a gradual ween as I do Not like kratom but it’s better than w/d.

Just writing my experience.

Not everyone trying to drop the subs has an ulterior motive and some of us are capable but do not what to deal with the unpleasant effects.

Once the restless legs ease up, I will Decrease even more.
