Kratom advocates claim that the herbal supplement may be used to help opioid addicts get through withdrawal symptoms in weaning themselves off the powerful painkillers.
Kratom has never gained FDA approval and is largely unregulated - meaning that, as with most supplements, it's nearly impossible to verify what's actually in "kratom" pills, powders, or teas.
In previous statements, Gottlieb said the FDA needs to weigh all available evidence and ask whether the use of kratom could increase the opioid epidemic, yet he also acknowledged that if the proponents are right, kratom could be used as an alternate tool to treat the addiction.
But because there are no FDA-approved uses of the substance, the agency can do nothing more than warn the public. Before it can be legally marketed for therapeutic uses in the US, kratom's risks and benefits must be evaluated as part of the regulatory process for drugs established by Congress. We understand that patients suffering from opioid addiction need access to effective treatment options.
"I understand that there's a lot of interest in the possibility for kratom to be used as a potential therapy for a range of disorders". In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.
The FDA recommends that consumers not use these or any kratom products and dispose of any products now in their possession. However, health representatives have still not recognized a precise brand or supplier of kratom supplements tied to the outbreak.
Kratom grows in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
"Kratom is a plant native to southeast Asia that is consumed for its stimulant effects and as an opioid substitute", according to the CDC notice. The agency has received reports concerning the safety of kratom, including the deaths associated with it.
The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared that a novel outburst of Salmonella hitched to Kratom. In interviews the CDC conducted when it was investigating that case, seven people reported eating at the sandwich chain Jimmy John's, and all of them said they'd eaten sandwiches with raw sprouts. The vast majority contaminated with salmonella create indications - including loose bowels, fever and stomach spasms - inside 12 to 72 hours of presentation to the microscopic organisms.
About 340 million packages of kratom enter the USA annually.
