How does grapefruit interact with medicines?
Eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice can cause higher levels of some medicines in your body, making it more likely that you will have side effects from the medicine.
Interactions can happen up to 3 days after eating or drinking grapefruit. This means you cannot drink grapefruit juice in the morning and take your medications later in the day to stop possible medicine interactions.
