Does grapefruit affect the drugs you take?


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.
