Kratom users sometimes report minor side effects to using kratom. These side effects are rare, but they are possible. The limited amount of side effects is one of the reasons that this herb is so popular. The most common reasons for these side effects are consuming too much kratom or consuming it every day. Learn more about the potential side effects of kratom. You will also find some tips for avoiding the negative Kratom side effects.
What are the Most Common Side Effects?
Whenever you use a medication or an herbal remedy, you should pay attention to side effects. Kratom is no different, other than the fact that the side effects are rare. It is hard to predict when side effects may occur or who may experience them. Here are the primary, most commonly reported side effects of consuming kratom:
- Upset stomach
- Light dizziness
- Dry mouth
- Difficulty concentrating
Several of these side effects can actually be cured by taking kratom in small doses. For example, many people take kratom to improve their focus and ability to concentrate. Yet, when people take too much kratom, they may experience an opposite effect.
How Can You Avoid These Side Effects?
The first step in avoiding these side effects is to learn why they occur. At the top of the list, headaches were mentioned. Headaches are often the result of dehydration. Consuming kratom can lead to dehydration. The best way to avoid a headache is to drink plenty of water.
Nausea, vomiting, and an upset stomach are often related to overdosing on kratom. Overdosing on kratom is not fatal, or at least there have never been any confirmed reports of death from overdosing on kratom. Instead, a kratom overdose is similar to a nicotine overdose – your body attempts to expel the substance – causing vomiting and nausea.
Light dizziness, difficulty concentrating, dry mouth, and drowsiness are all signs that you have consumed too much kratom. By paying attention to your dosage, you can avoid experiencing any of these symptoms.
Each of these side effects is related to consuming too much kratom or using it for an extended period. When using kratom regularly for relief from pain, anxiety, or stress, your mind may develop a mental dependency. If you develop a dependency on kratom, you may experience irritability, headaches, and nausea for a day or two after quitting, but these symptoms will pass quickly.
The side effects mentioned are only the side effects that are directly related to kratom. This does not include side effects from negative interactions with your medications. If you take any prescription medications, you should be cautious when using kratom, as the herb may affect the dosage of your medication.
If you follow these tips, it is highly unlikely that you will experience any negative side effects. Try to avoid using kratom on a daily basis. You should also avoid consuming extremely large doses of kratom. Kratom is best used in moderation, just like any other herb or medication.
