WARNING!

Don't Wash Down Your Medicine with Grapefruit Juice

If drinking a glass of grapefruit juice is part of your morning regime, be aware that this seemingly healthy habit may be dangerous if you take prescription drugs. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that grapefruit juice, especially the newer brands that are fortified with calcium, can alter the effect of certain medications. This is alarming because juice and medications are commonly consumed at breakfast. Plus, those most likely to be taking prescription medications, the middle-aged and elderly, are also the most likely to consume, calcium-fortified grapefruit juice. To be safe, always inform your doctors about your grapefruit jucie consumption before they prescribe any new drug.
