Brief Answer:
Better to avoid

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

There are no formal studies on the interaction between Sulfa drugs and Kratom.

But the side effect profile of both is almost same. There may be potential hazards due to the accentuation of side effects.

It is safe to avoid taking Kratom while on antibiotics.

Hope, I answered your query.
