Medications that Feed Morgellons Disease 6/26/19

Chapter VI of my book, How to Get Your Life Back from Morgellons, Chronic Lyme, and Other Skin Parasites, lists several medications that have been repurposed for getting your life back from Morgellons and other skin parasites. But, I've often wondered if there might be some medications that feed the parasites. After over 13 years since my book was first published, William has shed some light in that question and shared his experience. We can't say this is true for everyone, but if you're on Adderall or Concetta, or Vyvanse or one of the other meds listed below, you may never get the diet to kick in.

William writes,

"Hey Richard,

One thing I wanted to make sure I tell you before I get rid of this and hopefully get this issue out of my life are medications that makes symptoms of skin parasties issue 10x worse. It is literally worse than soy sauce and olive oil put together. If people are taking stimulants like Adderall, Concerta, or Vyvanse these are easily the most offending substance I’ve found; and it lasts for 4 or 5 days.

I am not sure exactly if I have Morgellons but I know I have the Collembola and most likely have fungus. I do most likely have Lyme disease which is why I wonder if I also have Morgellons. In any case, these stimulants are really bad. I went off them for years and I never used to have this issue. I think the Lyme took hold and I began having issues with the Collembola and everything. No one could figure it out. This obviously hurt my energy and so I eventually got prescribed a stimulant to help me again as I Explained to the doctor that I took this all thru college. It helped greatly as I expected except the next day and there forward I was noticing springtails everywhere and the itching began to get real bad. (This is while on the diet which has always worked for me). Of course I went on and off for a couple months and there is no doubt these stimulants are causing real bad reaction with lesions everywhere.

Thank you for what you do and I thought you may want to mention this to people. Take care."


I thank William for taking the time to share his valuable experience. I know very little about these meds except that Adderall is used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.  Concerta  and Viyanse are also prescribed for ADHD and impulse control. Coincidentally, another lady, Sharon, wrote in to say that she too is on Addereall and that the parasites are eating her face alive. Maybe others have told me before, but I never made the connection that William did. 

The list of meds for ADHD are:

  1. Adderall XR (amphetamine)
  2. Concerta (methylphenidate)
  3. Dexedrine (amphetamine)
  4. Evekeo (amphetamine)
  5. Focalin XR (methylphenidate)
  6. Quillivant XR (methylphenidate)
  7. Ritalin (methylphenidate)
  8. Strattera (atomoxetine hydrochloride)
  9. Vyanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate)
In light of what William has shared, I'd be leary of all of them. According to our Dr. Su, Nuvigil is another medication in the same class that may also feed the parasites. In their place, he uses a supplement from Xymogen called Cogniquil with some benefit. Unfortunately, it's only available through medical practitioners such as himself and not over the counter. He also suggests Wellbutrin may work too in managing ADHD. Wellbutrin also just happens to be one of the meds beneficial for dealing with skin parasites listed in Chapter VI.

I would also suggest to boosting glutathione too. Glutathione seems to be found deficient in practically every disorder known to man.
