Does grapefruit affect the drugs you take?  Yes, if only eaten raw or juiced.

If you're taking certain medications then you should steer clear of grapefruit.  It contains a substance that interacts with a long list of drugs regularly found in medicine cabinets across the country.

Some of the drugs that interact with grapefruit include: heart drugs such as statins, calcium channel blockers and amiodarone, anti-HIV medicines, and immunosuppressants.

You can also find a comprehensive list of drugs that interact with grapefruit on the National Prescribing Service's website.
