The FDA is Cracking Down on Kratom

To this day, there are no current FDA-approved uses for kratom and it appears to have properties that expose users to the risks of addiction, abuse, and dependence and has been linked to a multistate outbreak of Salmonella. According to the FDA, neither kratom nor its compounds have been proven safe and effective for any use and should not be used to treat any medical conditions. The FDA has also received concerning reports about the safety of kratom, including deaths associated with its use.

Taken in total, the scientific evidence we’ve evaluated about kratom provides a clear picture of the biologic effect of this substance. Kratom should not be used to treat medical conditions, nor should it be used as an alternative to prescription opioids. There is no evidence to indicate that kratom is safe or effective for any medical use. And claiming that kratom is benign because it’s “just a plant” is shortsighted and dangerous.
