Grapefruit juice and Carvidelol

I have been drinking fresh juiced grapefruit and orange juice combination - I did not realize it reacted with Carvidelol - how bad is the combo?

Hi!
Grapefruit juice blocks or reduces or delays the breaking down of Carvidelol into its metabolites for excretion. Thus, the prescribed dose will last longer, and can result in more side effects than usual. This simply means the drug becomes more effective than required in the body. While it may not be life threatening, over time it will result is hypotension or low blood pressure with the same dose—an this can become serious. So, please avoid drinking grape fruit juice on a regular basis. Inform your doctor about this. Take care!
