INTERACTIONS OF GRAPEFRUIT WITH MEDICATIONS

What Should You do If You Are Taking Grapefruit Juice and Prescription Medications?

Some patients are being counseled to take their medications with grapefruit juice to boost the blood levels of the medication. This is not a recommended practice at this time to use grapefruit juice to increase the blood levels and effects of their medication.

If you are not currently taking your medications with grapefruit juice regularly, donít start. If you are already taking your medications with grapefruit juice regularly, donít stop. The exception to this guideline is for terfenadine (Seldane) and astemizole (Hismanal). Enough evidence exists of the danger of taking terfenadine with grapefruit juice that you should stop taking this with grapefruit juice immediately.
