    Keep fighting! I respect you all for getting this far!

    I have red bali capsules that are supposed to be 600 mg. How many should I be taking for chronic pain?

    1. Jack Chaney

      I take 30 capsules of super green Malaysian for a dose. That’s about 15 grams. It seems like a lot but it actually is effective. I’m not currently addicted to any painkillers but I have been on and off them for many years. I’ve had a lot of surgeries but I’ve also been a street drug user. When I started using kratom I started with red bali. I have bought quite a few different strains quite a few times. I’ve found the super green to be the strongest but it does keep me from sleeping if I take it later in the day. I’ve also found that taking kratom every day makes it less effective. As stated I’ve been using it for a while and I am plenty experienced with opiate use. Back when I first started on kratom I used it every day. I was worried when it would get low and I’d try to be sure to have plenty. As it turns out I had no withdrawal issues at all! I couldn’t believe it. So now I just take it when the pain is really bad. I take 15 grams and get effect very quickly. Especially with my coffee in the morning. Oh, btw, I did try it in powder form too. It’s like eating the stuff stuck to the deck of lawnmower (not that I’ve tried that), nasty, vile tasting stuff. You can buy these thin little papers from Amazon and fold it into them to swallow but I’d recommend just using capsules. Start with taking maybe 10 or 15, learn what your proper dose is. If you don’t have to take it every day you’ll get more bang for your buck but if you’re withdrawing you have to do what you have to do. I wish I’d know about this when I withdrew from methadone! That was a awful experience! Don’t EVER get on methadone, the stuff is S L O W to withdraw from and it only exacerbates the misery.
      I hope you find this helpful? I found this site from searching my dose, which even after doing this for a couple of years, seems large and kinda worries me. All said, I believe kratom is a winner, at least you don’t have to worry about withdrawal.
      Good luck to you all!

    I just like the way this makes me feel. I generally dose with 2 teaspoons of powder. However, I just bought the liquid extract and I don’t know how much to take. It’s a 9 gram bottle of oil. Any suggestions?

  4. Steven

    I’m planning on using this for pain. Do you have to use everyday or can you use just once in awhile

    1. Jen

      Whenever you feel a need. I’ve not found it needs to be used routinely. It’s more effective the less you use it.

  5. JaynVA

    Try Bali if you are coming off anything. I had gone cold turkey from poppy seeds and any pills I could get. I felt like crap and was probably sitting here dying slowly. Bali took the horrible feeling away. I had been without anything for 3-4 months, and my withdrawals had never subsided.

  6. Lisa Newman

    Jeff,
    Are you coming off subs cold turkey? If so, the detox is a long one. Much longer than full antagonistic opiates. How much sub are you on?Hopefully we can find some relief with this stuff. I just don’t know how to go about it.

    1. Jay

      I didn’t sleep for roughly 16 days when quitting cold turkey. I was only taking 1/8 of a piece a day for the last 2 years i was on them… needless to say that was by far the worse few weeks of my life. Couldn’t even get comfortable to fall asleep. A heavy weighted blanket helped eventually. Anxiety was a new thing to deal with. Kratom did help me big time. I was told about Kratom red by a friend. It was said to trick my mind into thinking I was taking something else. Can’t believe suboxone is even legal. The strongest stuff I ever was on. I only started using them to help quit pain killers. The withdraw from typical painkillers felt like a breeze compared to that stuff. If you smoke Marijuana then make sure you are more frequently. Maybe not as much but spread out more throughout the day worked for me. Took about 2 months to feel “good” for me. So hang in there.

  7. Lisa Newman

    Anyone detox off Buprenorphine/Nalaxone using this stuff? Withdrawals are absolute HELL off Bup, worse than full opiate antagonist. Does Nalaxone block the mu receptors making Kratom worthless?

    1. shawn

      yes, but if you’ve been weening down it will help when you finally quit the bu/nal. I went down to a bit less than 1/2 ml. before quitting. been on it for years. It does help with the transition.

      1. Lisa Newman

        If I may ask, how much bup/nal were you taking? How did you do the transition? At which point of tapering off the bup/nal did you start using kratom? Any info is much appreciated!

        1. Solat Faith

          I’d appreciate feedback about how much kratom to take…… imI was on mosthdone for over ten years and got up to 117 mg a day. However in the last 6 months I came down from 55 mg To 19 Mg a day before I stopped. Then I went 2 days with nothing and started taking subs (1/4 of an 8 mg pill per day) for a couple months. Went for almost a week without anything begirecI started getting really sick and got sone kratom. How much should I be taking. Red powder

          1. Jen

            I’d say start with 1 teaspoon and go from there. If you don’t feel anything within 30 minutes try another teaspoon. Everyone is different. It varies WIDELY. But I personally was on suboxone to get off pain meds (Percocet). I took 1/4 of a strip every day the last 6 months. I was still suffering. Couldn’t get over the anxiety/lethargy. I started at 1 teaspoon and it was plenty. Changed my life. I not only functioned finally but went back to a 65 hr/week job.

    2. Jeff

      Im on here for same reason been on subs since 2012. Tried twice to get off of em but im always still sick after vacation days end and have to go back to work. Im hoping this might be a option as well

    I suffer chronic pain from a botched inguinal hernia procedure from back in 1997. I was on bed rest for nearly a year after, constant swelling in my scrotum that needed draining, migrated staples which moved from the mesh area up into my abdomen.

    First surgeon removed the migrated clips, stitched me up and sent me on my way. Saying that would be all he could do for me. Got a second opinion a year later, new surgeon did an exploratory surgery and found the first doc put a dollar size mesh in with staples all the way around it. The hernia breach hole was no bigger than a silver dollar. 80% of the mesh had to be removed, along with about 8-10 staples. My body was severely rejecting all of it.

    Got some relief, but came back again in a bad way in 2010. The pain became so intense I had to seek another surgeon. While trying to find one, I started pain management. Was started on 25 mcg Butrans patch and 3-10mg norco for Daily breakthrough.

    5 years later and after changing meds over the years (Ms Contin/Norco/oxycodone) I was last on OxyContin 25 extended release once daily, and 4 10mg oxycodone for breakthrough pain.

    The last surgery was July 5th 2017. My second son was born that next August the 21st (day of the solar eclipse). After the surgery the doc said it was really bad. He couldn’t remove all the remaining mesh, as some was intwined with major arteries. He said it was an 8-10 hour surgery he had to do in 4. As he had other patients waiting. So he didn’t finish the job.

    The birth of my 2nd son and the recent surgery made me reevaluate my live and I knew that because I had been on opioids for nearly 8 years, everyday..it wouldn’t be easy to stop.

    I read about Kratom and at the time I had to drive up to Kentucky where it was legal to buy (I’m in Tennessee). It’s legal here now..thankfully. But my severe RLS, hot flashes, med cravings, it all but went away within the first few doses. I would change up between Red and White Maeng da. My PCP doc gave me Clonidine which also help so much with RLS and sleep for like the first week or so which were the worst. But the kratom took nearly all of the withdrawal symptoms away.

    I’m still suffering with pain in my groin area. I have 3 yr old and 5 yr old boys. Keeping up with them is very challenging cause the pain comes still with physical activities. Coughing, singing, lifting, sitting too long, standing too long, strenuous exercise is out of the question. I’m still very limited and fight daily chronic pain. I refused to go back to Pain Management, as I know where that road leads. Not to mention patients like me, with an extensive medical history are getting treated like a criminal and getting pain meds are like pulling teeth. Shame that the people who really need the medication have to struggle so much to get it. But nevertheless, kratom imo is far safer and even more so effective as the pain meds.

    I highly HIGHLY recommend anyone getting off opioids to try kratom. Your withdrawal symptoms won’t be nearly as pronounced. It helps give me some energy thru the days, it curves my appetite a little, and reduces the groin pain quite a bit.

    Although I wish I could find another surgeon to finish getting this mesh out me, I’m grateful to have this plant to help get me thru this until I do.

    Best of luck to you all. Thanks for reading..

    I have been taking 70-80 mgs of hydrocodone for about 9 years now… it all started with a Dr prescription, then to access from my family and has now reached the point I have spent hundreds of thousands… I made my mind up that I want to stop… I have even set a date for this Friday.. I bout a bottle of green Kratom today In preparation(I have def experienced withdrawls before)… I have a wife who I have lied to and 3 kids who deserve better… I’m in a situation I will have to do this alone because she won’t be able to comprehend because she will never understand how addiction works in a mind… any recommendation on doses I plan to take this just long enough to completely get the opiates out of my system… the bottle says 70 capsules and 44grams on it… any help is appreciated.. would be nice to know I’m not alone.

    1. Brandon

      Been a heroin addict for 23 yrs coming off it again and honestly kratom is saving me. I’d go with the powder. Your not alone bro… You need anyone email me

    2. Me

      You are not alone!! Stay strong 💪

    3. Kris

      I would suggest that you start around 2grams and up it my 1 gram each time if you find it’s not enough. Taking too much can be an unpleasant experience(dizzy, headache, stomach pain).

      Highly recommend you stay very hydrated as kratom dries you right up.

      Don’t feel ashamed if you continue to use kratom AFTER the hydrocodone withdrawal period is over. In my opinion it does a tremendous job curbing impulse… i even quit drinking and smoking after starting kratom. I used to be addicted to painkillers and heroin for the latter few years of my addiction. I take kratom every day now—9 years! I’ve come to learn to respect it and treat it as any other medication.

      Good luck to you and your family

    I’m coming off a high dosage of percocets Can anyone let me know how much to take to help with the withdrawal symptoms
    please email me at [email protected] Thank you

    1. Rich

      Eddie, you and I have the same question, how much to be effective at taking to overcome pain. Like the doctors use a MED chart equivalent to Morphine of 1mg to ______ any opiate drug. It make it safer to understand the potency, See ya Good Luck! Stay on point and free from unessary chemicals!!!!!!!!!

    Kratom is incredible for opiate withdrawal! I was given pain killers after my several visits to the hospital due to my acute pancreatitis. I was given several type of pain killers, but when my doctor stopped giving it to me, I just couldn’t stop. The pain was unbearable! So I kept getting some from friends and other connections. After several years of the same bull s*it, I decided to stop. The first 5-6 days are the worst but since I discovered kratom, my life has changed as I don’t have to deal with the horrible withdrawals. Kratom has eased all my pains and I can actually sleep a few hours at night without the constant leg/body pain. Kratom is a miracle! I love the red Bali kratom!

  14. Amy

    I’m trying to switch from methadone to suboxone and have to go 3 days without opiates can I take Keaton or will I get precip withdrawal when I take the sub?

    1. Dave

      I have a regular prescription for Oxycodone that I take for pain. I have been on it for 2 years now. There are days that I will use only kratom. it works great and I feel no ill effects from not taking the oxycodone.

  15. criss

    So I got some kratom maeng da capsule 500mg trying to help a friend get off methadone withdrawals not sure how many capsules to take and how often ?? Anyone know the dosages and how often please help there are no instructions or a dose chart

    1. John

      depends on his methadone dose BUT I have a friend 10 caps of regular powder and nothing then another 10 and roxycontin withdrawals were gone so I say 20 caps or 10 grams should do it.. BUT if he says “my withdrawals are gone but I’m not getting a high” SMACK him in the head and say stop the bullshit let’s get you clean.

  16. ronnie

  19. Yosef

    Hey y’all, so I’m back on the H and for a few months have been using almost a gram a day IV usage. I got some red bali 500 mg caps, how many should I take in morning, evening, and afternoon to kick the H? Then, how should I go about tapering off of the Kratom? PLEASE HELP!

    1. Eric

      Hi Yosef!

      Maybe web search or Google: “Matt Finch”/recovery coaching. Definitely suggest his website: http://www.elevationrecovery.com
      Matt’s blog, podcast & opiate detox/recovery courses have helped thousands get off H & other opiates. Myself included. I’m a 20 yr opiate user w/ many yrs of IV H using among other drugs I’d slam daily: but opiates were by far my drug of choice. I have no wish to go back.
      There are multiple protocols provided, plus examples of success stories very similar to folks in your (our) situation.
      U CAN DO THIS!
      Create a plan, achieve your recovery & life goals, be empathetic to yourself / go easy on yourself. Soon enough you’ll enjoy all that life has to offer on the other side of addiction!
      – Eric H.

    2. Geeves

      Try like 4 or 5 at a time on an empty and see how your tolerance is. That’s an easy dose. You should notice effects within 15 min at the most sometimes in 5. Then it’s a matter of tapering off of the kratom: just one less each time you take it each day/cpl days and voila

    3. Erica

      Hi I read ur post and was wanting to know the answer to ur question . I’m in a very similar situation. Did anyone answer u?
