Avatar f tn I was prescribed with vicodin for the pain and birth control to try and level out my hormones. My question is should I just go ahead and push for the surgery or should i wait it out and see if it goes away on it's own. My fear is that if I wait too long it will rupture or twist and cause me more severe pain (like before) or also grow in size and risk losing my right ovary all together. My OBGYN doesn't seem worried at all and i am freaking out about it. Someone please help me!

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.

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.
1175033 tn?1492201228 I started taking Valium recently and noticed that the bottle warned not to consume grapefruit of the juice at all while taking this medication. This was a issue for me because I drink hansen's natural cane sugar soda with real grapefruit extract and I had to give that up, but I really didn't want to so I read up on what it will do. 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. It's always good to ask your doc or Pharmacist what common interactions a medication has, both for other meds and food.

Avatar n tn I have been taking vicodin for 5 years now and it started out as a result of a injury and now it has become a full addiction. I am taking about 10 to 12 a day. I take two during the day at work and then when I get home is when I take the rest. I function normally to a certain extent. I work 45 to 50 hours a week in a very stressfull job and do my job very well. I feel like I have changed so much since the addiction began.

727136 tn?1231182664 You name it, I had it. My left ovary was enlarged to size of grapefruit, wrapped around my ureter and the artery nearby, then that was all plastered to my left pelvic side wall. I opted for total hys due to endo, etc. I have 1 happy, healthy boy - he's almost 10! Anyway, the Dr. told me the day after surgery that he had to "chisel" out all the tissue he could but I would have to have surgery again due to tissue growth - this time it would have to be with a GYN Oncologist.
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.
Avatar n tn can I drink the juice of 1 grapefruit a day, if I am taking metoprolol and fosinopril for blood pressure? My blood pressure is completely controled.
