I'm writing this after having come back from the hospital only 1 hour ago. I was with a friend having a few beers and she suggested we take some Kratom. I had never tried it, and after looking up some reviews online, I decided it seemed harmless and chose to take 3 grams with her. We then went to a friend's house where I was feeling fine, although maybe a bit tipsy from the beers and then all of a sudden I started feeling bad. I was sweating and needed to go to the bathroom. When I went to the bathroom, I stopped in the middle of peeing because I knew I was about to faint. I then decided to go outside and ask my friend to lie down in her bed. I never made it past the front door. I woke up to paramedics and went to the ER for an electrocardiogram among other tests. I'll be going back tomorrow, but until proven otherwise, I'm quite sure this was a result of either the Kratom itself or the mixing of Alcohol and Kratom. Although my friend also had roughly the same amounts of Alcohol and Kratom but didn't experience the fainting. I'm not sure what to make of it, but all I would say is be careful with this stuff.
[Reported Dose: 3 grams Maeng Da Kratom capsules plus 3 beers]
