Krieger Kleanse

Krieger Kleanse is a cleansing "tea" designed by Dr. Krieger which featured in El Contador (s3e5).


As ISIS workers are to undergo drug screening, Krieger offers Ray, Cheryl, and Pam the "tea" / compound to cleanse their systems. They accept, not knowing that he tricked them into taking a potent experimental hallucinogen.[1] He observes the effects of the so-called 'Krieger Kleanse' on them as one of his dubious experiments.


The effects of the Krieger Kleanse are, as described, vivid "mind shredding" hallucinations, followed by a near-comatose state. For some reason, possibly her body mass resulting in a lower dose, Pam did not go into the comatose phase. The drug had a stimulative effect on her instead, resulting in extreme manic behaviour and continued delusions, where she began running from Krieger uncontrollably (much like Danny's reaction to Formula K). Krieger tried to sedate her with multiple tranquilizer darts, to no effect.


  • Krieger charges Ray, Pam and Cheryl $100 per dose.



  1. The profoundly unethical testing of psychoactive substances on unwitting patients by Krieger is an allusion to the CIA's Project MK-Ultra. This project is also alluded to in A Going Concern (s2e2) and is mentioned directly in Liquid Lunch (s7e8).
