The dangers of grapefruit juice and medication

Grapefruit juice and obviously grapefruits since they contain grapefruit juice, can be deadly when you’re on certain medications.

I was giving a lecture at work on drug and food interactions, among them grapefruit juice, when one of the students shared with us that her grandmother had recently passed after consuming regular amounts of grapefruit juice over a week and the combination of grapefruit juice and her medication regimen interacted and caused her death.

This is a really sad story that should never have happened.

Her doctor should have warned her about this!

It made me realize the importance of raising awareness of this in order to hopefully prevent another tragedy from occuring.
