If you're looking for a healthy, all-natural alternative to prescription medications like Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, even Morphine, then Kratom might be worth your while. It's relatively inexpensive, legal (as of now), and will help you lead a happier, more fulfilling life. That said, you know your body and you know your limits.
Think like 2 – 3 grams, sometimes even less.
With this stuff, the least amount seems to produce the most profound effect, while limiting any tolerance or addiction issues.

This all depends on your individual body chemistry, and how often you’re taking it.
1.) I am not, nor have I ever been, addicted to painkillers like Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, etc.
Now that doesn’t mean you should be chugging 20 grams of the stuff.
Because it’s sold as a powdery substance, all you literally need to do is mix it in your drink of choice and gulp it down.
So basically it was unclear if Kratom was the actual culprit.
There are plenty of published studies showing the dangers of over-the-counter medications. OTC pain medications, even such common ones as aspirin, are dangerous and potentially deadly. Taking OTC painkillers for six months or more can double your chances of dying from a stroke or heart attack.

Acute traumas frequently also result in injuries that will benefit by temporarily blocking your pain response. Of course these drugs are easily abused, but if used carefully and wisely I believe that they are a great advance in health care.
A few other safe and natural ways to treat pain include:
Few people realise that codeine, available in a variety of OTC painkillers, is a potentially addictive opiate - a narcotic, like morphine and heroin, derived from the opium-producing poppy plant. And just this week, research showed that paracetamol-based Calpol - the most seemingly innocuous drug of all.
Though Daniel and Sophia are still struggling to cut down their intake, for Rachel, hooked on codeine from the age of 16 to 29, there has been a happy ending.
That's not far short of the 154 deaths in 2011 caused by the opioid-like Tramadol, a prescription-only painkiller the Home Office is now looking at reclassifying as a Class C drug. And codeine can also be a killer. In the past decade the annual number of deaths in which some form of codeine has been implicated has almost tripled, from 46 in 2001 to 120 in 2012.

Safe alternative to opiates may have been found New research suggests that a newly identified compound, PZM21, could be more effective at longer-lasting pain relief than morphine, without any of the This applies not only to prescription painkillers, but over-the-counter products such as paracetamol.
Current opioid painkillers also have the negative side effect of being addictive. Morphine is an alkaloid from the opium poppy that is used to treat pain. These include respiratory depression and constipation. Although the natural products morphine, codeine, and the semi-synthetic drug heroin, are more reliably effective at providing pain relief than raw opium, they have potentially lethal side effects.
"These features have contributed to favourable biological effects, with long-lasting analgesia coupled to apparent elimination of respiratory depression, specificity for central over reflex analgesia, lack of locomotor potentiation and conditioned place preference, and hence a reduced potential for opioid-induced reinforcement for PZM21 and molecules like it.".

This compound is thought to work further down the painkilling pathway than morphine, so it was hoped that it would have fewer undesirable side effects.
BACKGROUND: Codeine is a lawfully permitted ingredient of over-the-counter cold and cough medicines readily available to the public in Taiwan. Drug abusers often use it as a substitute for morphine and heroin, attributing the morphine in the urine test to therapeutic cough medicine. In the literature, several criteria for.

Positive screen was noted during syrup use and 12-30 hours after the last dose of medication. In only 1.4% of the urine specimens was the morphine:codeine ratio 1-3.0, and in these, the concentrations of morphine and codeine were both below 300 ng/mL. The morphine:codeine ratio was < 1 during syrup use and 12 hour after the last dose of syrup.
Here, we evaluate whether these criteria still fit in therapeutic situation. Drug abusers often use it as a substitute for morphine and heroin, attributing the morphine in the urine test to therapeutic cough medicine. In the literature, several criteria for taking codeine, using a single large-dose model, have been proposed. Codeine is a lawfully permitted ingredient of over-the-counter cold and cough medicines readily available to the public in Taiwan.
The results are compatible with the findings of the single large-dose model and may be used as a reference for the interpretation of urine analysis after the intake of multiple therapeutic doses of cough syrup with codeine.

The urine specimens were analyzed by an enzyme immunoassay screening test and a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) confirmation test. Urine specimens were collected regularly during and in the 3 days after syrup consumption. Ten healthy volunteers each received, over two days, a total of 8 doses of cough syrup containing 4.5 mg of codeine phosphate per dose.
