Just wondering if anyone else is aware that grapefruit juice will enhance the effects of your medication. I don't know what the property is in the grapefruit but can attest that it does work.
Only one caution: Grapefruit juice also enhances the effects of other medications as well. For instance, if you're statin drugs for lowering cholesterol, you need to be very careful because drinking grapefruit juice when you take your statin can cause severe liver damage. I take simvastatin and the package label has a warning that drinking grapefruit juice even one time while on the med can cause liver failure.
I drink grapefruit juice every day because I love it and so I had been at risk for some time without knowing it. So far I haven't had any ill effects--my liver is fine--but I hesitated to even post this in case someone else might not be so fortunate. Be careful with this info and do the safe thing, please.
