You should stop using any medication that is not necessary for life support. This includes any pharmaceutical products that work to suppress symptoms. It is best to stop using medications as much as three weeks before and after taking Ayahuasca, though as little as a few days is better than nothing. Most of the medications may be an unnecessary mixture into your Ayahuasca experience, which could reduce its healing potential or alter its effects.
It is important to trust that the Ayahuasca experience has the potential to cleanse the body, which can include healing that which causes your ailments. Some of the medications could also be dangerous in combination with Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is classified as MAOI (Monoamine oxidase inhibitor), meaning that it has specific interaction with some types of medication. Please check the Drugs to be avoided with Ayahuasca page, or consult the ceremony personnel and/or your doctor about the interactions MAOIs may have with the medication you are taking. For examples, you should gradually stop taking any antidepressants, SSRIs, and mood stabilizers before an Ayahuasca experience, so that no traces of medication are present in the body at the time of the ceremony.
