Taking meds? Hold the grapefruit juice

Taking meds? Hold the grapefruit juice

Grapefruit juice can alter the effects of several kinds of drugs, including statins (taken for high cholesterol), some antidepressants and blood pressure medications. The same goes for whole grapefruit and any grapefruit products. Always ask your doctor or pharmacist when you get a new prescription if it interacts with any foods. If the answer is yes, ask whether you need to eliminate that food from your diet.
