Can I Take my Prescriptions While on the Cleanse?


This is a Frequently Asked Question that I don’t yet have a great answer for. If you have an opinion, please post a comment or email. To err on the cautious side, I would continue to take my prescriptions until I had consulted with my doctor, just to ensure there are no problems due to either a lack of nutrition or the addition of something unwelcome from the Master Cleanse ingredients themselves.

    If you are taking regular medications, first of all, you should know everything about those medications including how they work, how they are absorbed, their contraindications, side effects, etc. Then, absolutely do not do this cleanse program (or any other cleanse program) before checking with your doctor telling her/him exactly what your cleanse program consists of and what medications you are on. This is just common sense.

    I strongly disagree with the other poster who suggests NOT taking prescriptions without a doctor’s permission. For purposes of those “take with food” medicines, many are so that the patient doesn’t experience stomach pain from the harshness of the medication, and the lemonade diet would suffice for that purpose. I can’t think of many ideas that are so obviously unwise as not taking a prescription medication for a medical condition you have without asking your doctor. Internet forums are no substitute for medical judgment from someone who actually knows you personally. If you have a condition requiring medication and you think The Master Cleanse might adversely impact that medication, you should probably wait to start the cleanse. There are many other more gentle cleanses out there that can probably still help you with your cleansing goals.

    My suggestion: if you are on prescription medication ask your doctor first.
    Many medications must be taken with food in order to enter the body properly.

    I would say NO not without the doctor’s permission

    http://www.doctoryourself.com has some great links about specific aliments/medications. I looked at this with my own issue. I have Hasimotos (a thyroid dysfunction similar to hypothyroidism). This website is not specific the the Master Cleanse; it does however touch on some interesting topics, like juicing.

    Because of what it said on here I am continuing to take my thyroid medication (I am on day 2 currently of my 1st cleanse ever!). I would also assume diabetics and others with autoimmune diseases would be better to maintain their dosage until they speak with a doctor. You should always have your levels checked frequently as it is. I intend to have my levels checked within the month when I complete the MC; taking too much of your medication when your levels change is just as bad as not enough.
