What Happens When You Combine Kratom With Cough Suppressants?

Kratom isn’t ‘just’ a herb. It is a serious herb that has medicinal properties. It is supposed to be taken in a fixed-dose to get relief from various kinds of common issues like pains, anxiety, insomnia, low energy, and low mood. You must take its alkaloids seriously.

Perhaps that’s why experts advise not to mix kratom with other medications. Due to less research on kratom in Oklahoma and other states as of now, doctors don’t know what exactly would happen, if you mix certain medicines with this herb. It is best to be on the safe side.

Suppose you are taking kratom for mood enhancement and anxiety. If you are already on some anxiolytic medication, either stop the medication or avoid taking kratom. In some cases, it is not advisable to stop medications on your own. You must consult your doctor regarding this.

The point is that you mustn’t combine kratom with medicines that are for the same purpose. So, in this case, you must not combine the medicine for anxiety with kratom because kratom, too, is an anxiolytic.

As per experts, avoid combining kratom with the following medications:

  • Anxiolytics
  • OTC analgesics
  • Prescription painkillers
  • Cough suppressants
  • SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors)

Combining kratom with cough suppressants

Some people claim that a combination of kratom and dextromethorphan (which is a cough suppressant) produces intense effects, as dextromethorphan is a kratom potentiator. They mix kratom powder with the cough syrup and then take it.

Doctors warn that this combination can be very dangerous.

Dextromethorphan is classified as morphinan. It is a sedative and an analgesic and produces euphoria. Imagine combining it with red kratom, which is known to be sedative, analgesic, and produces euphoria!

This can become a clear case of overdose.

Lack of research adds to the scare

The scary part is that, due to a lack of research on this subject, doctors don’t know what would happen to you when you make such combinations!

One thing it is certain of is that the combination is dangerous, not beneficial. How much dangerous is another matter. They are not sure whether it could be lethal. Moreover, if you fall seriously ill after taking this dangerous concoction, doctors would not know how exactly to treat you.

They would desperately try to save your life or treat your symptoms. This could become a situation similar to the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak when doctors were trying to find out how the virus reacted with the human body.

Do you know there are also instances when people fell sick after taking kratom? Later, it came to be known that the kratom they took was contaminated. So, folks, be careful where you buy kratom from. Search for “kratom near me” for pure kratom.

Take kratom separately

The best thing to do is take this herb separately. You enjoy its effects to the fullest this way and, at the same time, stay away from danger. Whether you love to chew Tropical Kratom Gummies or take capsules, take them only when you are off the medication of any kind.
