I buy high-quality kratom from a reputable vendor that does lab tests and whatnot. I've been taking various strains for over a year, but lately it seems to be causing me stomach issues.
I always take it in the evening. I usually take 4-5g and take it by just mixing the power with water and drinking it. I do use a chaser such as a diet soda and typically take it at least 2 hours after I've last eaten.
This is going to get a little TMI but basically I typically have 1 bowel movement per day in the morning. If I took kratom the previous evening I tend to have 2 or 3, each about an hour apart, and the 2nd and 3rd are proceeded by abdominal pain. It is not only painful but it is interfering with my work. I'm typically the most productive in the morning but not if I'm in the bathroom with stomach aches.
Is there anything I should try to solve this issue? I really don't want to give up kratom altogether.
