Dear Ask The Doctor: Dear Dr.,
I am currently taking Zoloft for depression and anxiety and am preparing to do a detox colon cleanse. Is it safe to do a all natural herbal detox colon cleanse while on Zoloft as long as the Zoloft is taken a few hours apart from all other supplements? Some of the herbal supplements are as follows, Calcium bentonite clay, psyllium husk powder, Molybdenum, milk thistle, black walnut hulls, grapefruit seed extract, clove bud, pau d'arco bark, pumpkin seed, myrrh gum, turmeric root, garlic bulb, hyssop, gentian root, elecampane root, prickly ash bark, yellowdock root, fenugreek seed, peppermint leaf, false unicorn root and other similar cleansing herbs. My doctor is COMPLETELY void of any knowledge of natural treatments so I can't get any answers from him. Please help! Thank you!
