    Has anyone's imaginary friends noticed sudden hyperthermia when kratom is combined with other stimulants / hallucinogenics ?
    SWIM heard that this seems to occur to a minor extent (so far) with such combinations, with noticable increase in body temp. Never dangerous, but given horror stories about PMA and malignant hyperthermia, such side effects should be well respected.
    SWIM's kratom now travels alone.

    It has been noted by some reliable sources that kratom may increase body temperature. It definately makes you feel warmer, but that doesn't mean it's actually increasing your body temp.

    I have confirmed that something did indeed raise body temp to >101 F. This was only in combination with phens to a greater extent than trypts and was repeatable. Possibly not a big deal, but malignant hyperthermia can be deadly, so best people pay attention just in case...
