As a "graduate "of all the various drugs prescribed for RLS, I started on Kratom today. Took 2 g at noon, when I would normally take Mirapex, .25mg. Repeated at 7:30 this evening, and with no relief in sight, added another g of that vile tasting mix. Now 4 hours later, and no results from the Kratom.
I have refrained from my normal medication, but feels like the kind of night when sleep is impossible.
So, my question to those of us who have taken, or currently take Kratom
1) did you taper off your other meds while introducing Kratom?
2) how soon did you get results?
3) What dosage works for you, when do you take it and what type do you use?
4) are you symptoms free or manageable?
Today I have taken 5 g which I think is quite a bit, and using red vein maeng da.
I would greatly appreciate hearing about your experiences and any advice you can offer.
