Thanks for contacting with your health concern

1. Kratom in recommended dosage acts as a stimulant [at low doses] and sedative [at high doses],and treatment for opiate addiction and no one in US has ever died from using keratom, unless taking a dose of 10-20x higher than the recommended amount. [and since you took it according to instructions they could be possible mild side effects]but if the effects continue to predominate rush to Emergency Room

2. Although Kratom is not addictive, it can be habit forming over a long enough period of time, so you should control your usage of this herbal to protect against these risks and minimize possible side effects.
