I tried to find my previous link to the bad interaction of Lipitor ( a statin) and pomegranate juice - and couldn't find it.....the sites I found today -> the nuts-and-twigs sites ( dated - 2006-7) said pom juice was bad & stated repeatedly: it alleges / supposedly/ similar to grapefruit /no proof yet that but ....
-when I talked to my pharmacist about
pom juice and statins, he was not aware of any interaction ....
-one of the sites talked about
immediate interaction, and like you, I have been taking it in very moderate doses - 3-6 oz a day with breakfast ( statin taken with food at evening meal)for over a year ....
-and I ain't dead yet ( nor any renal failure)...
-and my PSA actually went down
- see signature below -
-so will go back to it... I actually like the taste.
