Exclamation Newbie here =) Anyone did the master cleanse diet while taking Adderall and Lamictal?

Hello everyone!

I am new here and hope to be an active member =) I take adderall 20 mg twice a day and lamictal 100 mg twice a day. I read the forums about not eating acidic foods and I was wondering if it was okay to keep taking the meds while doing the master cleanse diet? (also called the lemoade diet) it's a detox to get rid of all the bad toxins in your body, works great! The first time i did it I was taking Adderall XR 30mg and lamictal 200mg and I was fine. I switched doctors and he started me off with Addeall 20mg and Lamictal 100mg but I'm guessing he's just trying to be safe until he gets familiarized with my situation. I wanted to start the cleanse again but now I'm worried that it won't be good for my body. Any suggestions or advice? Has anyone done this while continuing taking their meds? I would greatly appreciate it =)

I don't have a clue about this cleansing diet - removing all the toxins your body removes toxins constantly - it seems like a good balanced diet with plenty of fresh water would accomplish this while still maintaining good nutrition

Lemonade diet would be counter productive while taking adderall as the acid prevents the stimulant medication from absorbing.

My favorite body-cleansing diet is the "having a liver" diet.

It's amazing what a good set of organs can do for you.

Re: Newbie here =) Anyone did the master cleanse diet while taking Adderall and Lamic

Hi, I'm new here too - first post, actually - my first reaction would be that you don't want to do anything that is going to put your body in to any kind of trauma. I've done the Master Cleanse (before I started taking any meds) and I know it's a really serious cleanse. I was mentally affected for 4-5 days after starting the cleanse.

If you're taking psychopharmaceuticals that have been prescribed to you because of an existing condition, and you're sticking to your prescription, then I wouldn't recommend you do anything until you have a stasis and a good shrink. I know this sounds conservative, but you have no idea what starvation does to the mind.

I would recommend against any kind of cleanse or miracle diet. Good nutrition is important, and there is no "miracle" cure when it comes to giving your body what it needs.

A nutritionist would probably tell you that the lemonade/cayenne diet is dangerous, at best.

I was wondering the same thing a few weeks ago. I figured since I am not eating anyways, I might as well cleanse my system BUT I decided against it. I figured it would affect the absorption of my Adderall and cause it not to work. I say not to do it, but still drink tons of water and eat organic vegetables. This will cleanse your body just as well as the master cleanse

(pardon, I hope this isn't considered hijacking a thread ... Jenny, I found myself drawn to your post because it sounds like you have some experience with the whole starvation/mind thing? Sounds intriguing .... Can you enlighten me?

Huh? I was, as far as I was concerned, "innocently curious", as am doing a research paper on eating disorders. There was nothing bad about it. I just wanted to hear other perspectives etc.

cleanses make you lose weight for about a week and then you gain everything back. youre also messing with your metabolism by doing that

Re: Newbie here =) Anyone did the master cleanse diet while taking Adderall and Lamic

I cleanse quite regularly. In fact I was on a 7 day cleanse ( not the master cleanse) about 3 weeks ago. The mental clarity is AMAZING!
I follow a really healthy diet/lifestyle outside of the cleanse. Weight loss is never the goal .A cleanse is not a good way to do it.
However if changing habits is a goal then a cleanse is often a really good place to start .
I don't think meds are a good idea. Many people have detox symptoms and generally feel more tired the first couple of days of a cleanse. Some experience head aches.
It is good to know exactly how you feel.
No need for "artificial" energy when the body is healing.
A cleanse is a really good time to connect with yourself and the how's and why of how you operate .
Maybe this is a good time to take a break from meds ( the "med holiday") so every thing you experience is super authentic.
As I fear this thread will go somewhere dark pm me if you want .
I have done about 6 .One every 6 months.
Good Luck!!!!!!!

Oh my.... You are going to experience the most severe tension headache going on any sort of diet while taking Adderall. Not only will the headache be severe, but the nausea and vomiting will really do you in.
