Avatar m tn Thank you for the response Tuck;). I was just curious because since my doc switched me to ms contin from fentanyl 2 weeks ago my instant urine screen came up blank.

Avatar n tn A Potential for Adverse Events Many patients may take their medications with a glass of juice. However, since the accidental discovery of an interaction between the calcium channel blocker, felodipine, with grapefruit juice,1 it has now become evident that grapefruit juice has the potential to alter the plasma concentrations of many medications when they are taken by mouth. In some cases, this may result in undesirable clinical effects of medications.

One article I came across said it would increase the potency of certain meds by 400% http://www.mayoclinic.

Avatar m tn I remembered something about not eating grapefruit because it can reduce absorption of the Riba. I googled, but only found one article... seemed to indicate this is so. Does anyone know if this is a fact? I love citrus.... and I just bought a nice fresh bag last time I went shopping. Should I toss the grapefruit in the garbage?
Avatar m tn It was explained to me that grapefruit may cause a allergic reaction with the PI's. They did not mention lemons and I put lemon or lime in my water daily. Now I'm not suppose to be doing that? OOh **** one more thing to worry about! Lol !
Avatar n tn This is a really good question! Grapefruit and grapefruit juice actually are contraindicated with many medications...from cardiac drugs, meds for hypertension, antidepressants.

Avatar f tn thanks Research about the interaction of grapefruit juice with drugs suggests that compounds in grapefruit juice, called furanocoumarins (for example, bergamottin), may be responsible for the effects of grapefruit juice. Researchers believe that furanocoumarins block the enzymes in the intestines that normally break down many drugs. One glass of grapefruit juice could elicit the maximum blocking effect, and the effect may persist for longer than 24 hours.
