Oxycodone to Kratom. Reduction of dose, maintenance and switch over. - Part 4

By Lex_Talioniz · Feb 5, 2015 · ·
  1. You're right I do and currently I don't. I experimented with the kratom and threw in oxy. Today I tried a functional stim called 3,4, ctmp and I've been throwing oxy and a little kratom and soon some flubromazepam at it.

    The problem is I had a little more oxycodone thrown my way. Now that is finally the limit of the resource so the crunch time is near but as I know I stand not on the threshold of the taper and I'm acting like I don't really care. Within a few days or a week the story will have changed significantly. I will not post in this journal in the mean time as it will not be a report of progress but sniff by sniff account of my continuing abuse. I believe the idea of starting a journal was to log my progress and hopefully be scolded or supported if I slipped but I have flouted the rules of that enterprise entirely. The plan remains but the execution is ever so slightly postponed.

    I have a friend who lives away who's in a similar boat and he will be stopping at the time I plan to transition to kratom so that will help keep me in check.

    Last time I quit tramadol with a friend I didn't hear much from him for a few months only for him to come back to me and say he was back on it. Sneaky chemicals they are. Easily fooled are some of us too.

    When you are ready, just switch to kratom. At only 100mg per day of oxycodone, the switch should be easy. When I was up to 300mg daily plus morphine, the kratom didn't cover the withdrawal completely but even then it helped a lot. The real key is figuring out when you are really ready to quit and to stay quit. That answer is in your head. Your thoughts ARE more powerful than any chemical.

    That's a comfort to hear. I was pretty satisfied that the kratom would cover me but didn't know for fact. Time to quit was basically when I had spent more than enough on oxy and I am pretty fed up of the whole need to feed the beast.

    When some free oxy hit the table it postponed my quitting because, despite not wishing to spend any more on it, I won't throw away freebies.

    Thanks for the input.

    I wish you all the success in the world with this, Lex.
    I hope you found a good vendor, it can make the world of difference.
    Red Vein Bali seems to be the strain that people have most success with, due to it being the most opiate like i imagine.
    When you do first try it make sure that you have gone into withdrawals, so that you get a good idea of how much you are going to need and how long the kratom will help you fo each dose.

    Try to keep your dose as low as possible.
    Some people make the mistake of starting off with a huge dose, presuming they wont feel anything, but then they end up having as difficult a time getting off the kratom.
    Good kratom can be beneficial even in relativly small doses.
    I would recommend you start with no more than 5 grams on a empty stomach.
    If you can i would try to toss and wash it but i know this is something that can take a lot of practice and not everyone likes it.
    The next best option would be to mix it into some liquid or sauce. I find pesto helps mask the texture well and that can be spooned into the mouth and then swallowed down with some water.

    The other alternative is to make kratom tea by boiling the powder in water with a squeeze of lemon juice for 15-20 minutes then strain the powder and drink the tea.

    Try to leave as long as possible between doses. If you can deal with the withdrawals then stick them out before you take the kratom, this will let your tolerance drop faster.

    After a few days you should start to level out a little and you can either continue to do it like that for a while or try to reduce the dose slightly.
    Just do not get into the trap of taking the kratom to catch a buzz.

    Keep yourself busy, there is nothing worse than sitting around thinking about how shit you feel.
    You should be able to deal with any aches and pains with ibuprofen or paracetamol.
    Hot showers or baths will help too with any flu like symptoms.
    I find hot water bottles are great if you have any issue with restless leg syndrome.
    Valerian root extract can help with anxiety, as can exercise.
