Important Health Warning: Grapefurit Interacts With Prescription Drugs

Doctors warn that there are more prescription drugs on the market that interact with grapefruit juice than ever before. These interactions can lead to the overdose effect and, potentially, death.

Many people over 45 are taking medications these days. Ironically, they are also more likely to buy grapefruit for its great health benefits.

"Taking one tablet with a glass of grapefruit juice is like taking 20 tablets with a glass of water," says David Bailey, a clinical pharmacologist who discovered the interaction between grapefruit and certain medications more than 20 years ago."This is unintentional overdosing. So it's not surprising that these levels go from what we call therapeutic to toxic."

According to, of the 85 known drugs that interact with grapefruit, 43 can have serious side-effects, including sudden death, acute kidney failure, respiratory failure, gastrointestinal bleeding and bone marrow suppression in people with weakened immune systems.
