Hi, I'm on Day one of Master Cleanse. It's nearly bedtime and I just realized that I need to take my lithium and ambien soon. I know that Master Cleanse rids bodies of toxins. I've been vegetarian/vegan for about 10 years but was just diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder three years ago. I'm in a very high pressure field and sometimes taking care of yourself isn't easy. Anyway, I'll just delete the long story and get to my question. Is it worth doing the fast if I still have to take my meds? I understand that people feel strongly about mental health issues and I'd appreciate if you don't feel the exist or that medication is necessary that you keep it to myself. Getting off and going cold turkey is not an option. Over the years, I've been lost sight of my physical health and have had nasty downward spirals so I'd rather not go through that again.
I'm wondering if maybe I'm negating the effects of the Cleanse by staying on my regimine. Should I just go straight to the macrobiotic diet I'm prepping for or go through with the cleanse while still on meds?
PS> Sorry if this is choppy. I took out a whole chunk of TMI. I didn't want to bore anyone.
