  • dilauro: I can understand and I do appreciate your skepticism regarding the use of kratom for pain mitigation, because you are right, there just hasn't been much work done in the form proper study/publication on the subject... we're just now starting to see studies being proposed. I found 1 scholarly article (an abstract from the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association : articleid=2094342 : Trying to link throws an error, but here's the article ID) - it's a good read, check it out.

    Full disclosure: I'll tell you that I'm both an FDA skeptic and occasional kratom user - I'm not thrilled to have to take it, but I do find it beneficial. Personally I feel that kratom enjoys the same reputation now that cannabis enjoyed in the 60's; that is, considered to be of no medical value... would you say that now about cannabis? I feel that the spirit of the FDA is noble, but mission it's VERY underfunded, and has also become, IMHO, unfortunately, a lapdog agency for big pharma, in it's present form.

    Thank you for your valuable thoughts on this, dilauro, you bring balance & point-out some very important/unresolved issues that everyone should consider.

    Now - if only some scholarly research with kratom could be performed...
