      I ordered two brands, green and red, and found neither one to be the best at pain relief. If you have tried and like a dealer's product, would you please share the name?

      Kratom made my tinnitus subjectively much worse. I have read several accounts online of people developing intractable tinnitus as a response to Kratom products or kratom withdrawal.

      The traditional opioids are ototoxic. It's reasonable to suspect that the chemicals in kratom may be as well. Be careful.

      It's also worth noting that the strong kratom products (full spectrum extracts) often seem to produce a dependency and withdrawal which is on the same page as heroin withdrawal. I'm not kidding. I have a real life friend who ended up on Naltrex trying to get off Kratom, and it took months.

      I've read those stories too, but I've never been one to overdo anything. At this point, however, I've put it aside after trying two different types of kratom, red and green. Nothing to write home about, really. They just gave me a blah feeling and there was nearly no pain relief, which was my primary intent.

      How much were you using? Did it get permanently worse?

      Reports I've read online and in my own experience it causes a temporary increase.

      I use galactic botanicals and it works well for pain.

      My order of Kratom arrived. I get it in capsule form. I just did 10 grams. My ears aren't ringing and I don't have a care in the world. I'm so glad I didn't kill myself. When I do it I just lie still and clear my mind. No activities.
      Problem is it's not a good thing to do all the time. Very addictive. Too bad. It REALLY works. I'd do it every day if it was safe to do that. I use it in case of emergencies.

      I would think that with all the millions of people all over the world doing opiates legally and illegally there would be more reports of opiate induced tinnitus...
