Has anyone used Kratom while managing sickle cell.

Let me preface this by saying it is legal in my state. I have begun to use it to help my body go through opioid withdrawals after being discharged from the hospital. I want to know if anyone has tried it long term and seen any positive or negative effects.

  1. No doubt please be careful in consuming this product…

    1. I've never heard of Kratom but I was prescribed Suboxone/Naloxone. From the research I was able to gather from the NIH, it seems people use Kratom to manage drug withdrawal symptoms and cravings but it has not been approved by the FDA. NIDA says serious effects have been reported by people who use Kratom including psychiatric, cardiovascular and respiratory problems so please be careful.
