This is a good question to bring up. My GI doctor told me to NEVER get a colon cleanse done. It will upset the flora in our systems. Like you mentioned, it will upset the meds we take too. It can also send us into a major flare up.
If you're having bowel issues, it's crucial for you to see a GI (gastrointestinal doctor) first. Let him/her tell you what to do, and take. Don't do a cleanse without talking to a specialist, or even your pcp. It can be dangerous.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
