Boy, I certainly wouldn't have thought about that. I've read that those cleansing diets can be dangerous anyway. I have many medical conditions where I have to take multiple med's throughout the day and I would never do one. I can't eat oranges or have any acidic fruit because it reacts to one of my med's and gives me an extreme amount of gas. Think of dropping a Mentos into a bottle of pop. You really have to be careful if you are on med's of what you eat and what you do.

I've read that OJ has the same effect but not as bad as grapefruit. I'd switch over to Trop50 by Tropicana. Only 50 calories per 8oz. OJ is very acidic.

Is orange juice okay? DH likes orange juice and apples - that's about it for his fruit.

I agree. I also stay away from grapefruit.

Probably good advice - I always wonder about if someone has a stomach flu, and can't keep food or meds down for a few days. A ten day cleanse would really impact the meds!

from thebody.com

My husband is HIV + and wants to lose a little weight, I use a product called advocare that helps with general health and also helps with weight loss. One of the first steps of this product is that you have to do a 10 day cleanse. I am worried that if he does this cleanse it might strip his HIV meds from his system..He is taking Atripla, do you know if this cleanse would interfere with that?


Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although the specific answer to your question has not been studied, I would generally advise against the cleansing, as it could lead to reduced absorption and therefore antiviral effect of his Atripla. You may also need to check, depending on which product might be used, whether there are any ingredients that could interfere or interact with the components of Atripla.
