This is a repost of some important information for all of us. Many members here are on statins to control their cholesterol and this applies especially to you.
My hubby works for a produce company and brought me home some grapefruits. Something I remembered hearing about
meds and grapefruit made me look them up online and what I found blew me away. It seems that grapefruit increases the absorption or potency of some meds and there is an actual case of a person who died by consuming fresh grapefruit juice three times a day while on Lipitor. Just a word to the wise... So many of us are on multiple meds, check with your phamacist about
your meds and grapefruit or you can look them up online. One of the helpful sites I found online wasThe Mayo Clinic, Grapefruit juice and drug interactions
