When only kratom is taken, not mixed with any other drugs, the greatest risk is falling asleep or if vomiting when consumed in excessively large amounts. It is NEVER recommended to drive while under the influence of kratom or any other substance, even if you feel alert. The possible side effect of sleepiness may be experienced without warning. As with anything, always use Kratom in moderation and use common sense. Do not drive any vehicle while under the influence of Kratom or any other substance, nor use power tools, climb ladders or use kratom against the recommendation of licensed physician.
Pregnant women should not take any drug or medication except on medical advice by their licensed physician. There are little to no studies regarding the risks of kratom use in pregnant women, so it is not recommended. It is not known whether or not it could adversely effect the fetus or birth of the child. You cannot lose what you don't gamble, so it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to not use kratom or any other substance during pregnancy.
