Avatar m tn My wife has been perscribed fentanyl patches and has been told not to eat grapefruit, does this apply to all citrus fruit ie.
Avatar m tn I have also been eating nuts lately and grapefruit juice. I thought between the morphine not being so fat soluble, and grapefruit containing that enzyme, (of which I can't remember), that inhibits the metabolic process of many drugs, that perhaps I was to blame. My pharmacist leaves a little to be desired.

However neither interferon or ribavirin is metabolized by that particular enzyme(p450) so it is OK to drink your grapefruit juice. Stay Healthy!

Avatar f tn Several of my drugs (Lamictal, Seroquel, & Valium - at a minimum) interact w/ grapefruit. It's on all of the information that comes from the pharmacy and I didn't take it seriously until I got pretty toxic myself. I LOVE grapefruits & grapefruit juice and I miss them a lot. I also tend towards side effects and toxicity.

Don't take these interactions lightly, as some can cause potentially dangerous health problems.

Avatar n tn Wow looks like i should have read the warning label when my doc gave me to take them PRN or as necessary to re convert myself......okay i just went off of the site and read up on the label...they are telling us not to take it with the citrus because it effects how our body absorbs the Multaq for maximum performance of the med...if it were me and i had to take it on a daily basis i probably would stay away from all citrus drinks for sure because you want to give yourself the best shot possible...
Avatar f tn This may seem to be a silly question, but has anyone heard from their doctors not to combine methimazole and grapefruit? Online research seems to say it's not flagged as interacting but also notes that no studies have been done to see if it does interact. I was wondering if anyone's doctor had said anything? My doc is on vacation and I was gifted with a lovely and delicious looking 24 grapefruits.....

Avatar n tn Hi Chicky Watch out for interactions with grapefruit juice and meds. I went on Zoloft in anticipation of beginning treatment. Then read about the grapefruit juice-turns out they use the same enzyme to clear your system so you can get too much of the drug in your system and get liver toxicity. Grapefruit acts that way with many drugs, so check first, then drink up.
Avatar f tn Since I detoxed off fentanyl over a year and half ago, I will never touch that evil medicine again. They are just giving me fentanyl in my iv during the injections and versad. Since I have such a high tolerance to pain and anxiety medicine, do you think I will be relax and not in pain during the injections? I hope not, Im real tender down there! Thanks again guys!!!!
Avatar f tn i need to know that, what is the interaction between juices of Grapefruit and Hepatitis C? is there any reactions of Grapefruit juice being taken by Hepatitis C patient?
Avatar m tn If narigenin is grapefruit then it is definitely not a good idea. I didn't know what narigenin was but, if I had, I would have more strongly advised against it. Don't eat grapefruit while taking Prograf is one of the first things I was told and told many times immediately after transplant. "Do not consume grapefruit or grapefruit juice during treatment with Prograf unless your doctor has told you do(sic). Prograf can have a dangerous interaction with grapefruit or grapefruit juice.
Avatar n tn It went on to mention certain prescription drugs that are affected by eating grapefruit and its juice. Typically, I eat two grapefruits a day! When I called my pharmacist, he said that it wasn't a drug that showed a high incidence of interaction with grapefruit, unlike the cholesterol lowering drugs. (Internet searches clearly showed that there is a connection). The pharmacist did however, say, that I should skip that night's dose and try to taper off.
976606 tn?1263667593 I'm not sure what the official medical answer is regarding grapefruit juice and Synthroid, but I have never noticed a difference when I drink pink grapefruit juice vs. any other juice. I know grapefruit juice is a no-no with certain meds (my Mom can't drink it because of one of her post-heart attack medications), but I have never seen any warnings regarding synthroid.
Avatar f tn I decided I was going to lose weight and eat healthy this year so about a 11/2 week ago someone told me that grapefruit helped with weight loss. I started drinking 2 8oz (I think) cans of juice a day for 7 days and I was adding grapefruit essential oil drops to my water. I didn't really feel different I was sweating more but I thought it was from the grapefruit working and I wasn't sleeping hardly at all.
1106767 tn?1315050974 Hi honey,I just used concentrated grapefruit in a carton.make sure its yellpw grapefruit and not pink.I made sweet potato soup and have been having it for lunch every day too.
Avatar f tn Is grapefruit OK to eat for breakfast everyday? I tried to Google but no good answers. I know it is acidic, but I don't think harmful. Just want to make sure.
