Kratom use in the United States has increased in recent years. Even though it is legal, using Kratom can produce both stimulant effects (in low doses) and sedative effects (in high doses), and can lead to psychological and physiological dependence. As more patients present with Kratom use, providers should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of Kratom use and how to respond. Q&A and discussion to follow.
- Discuss what kratom is and why people use it.
- Outline how to treat patients with kratom misuse and review patient cases.
- Describe the clinical effects of kratom intoxication and withdrawal.
