Do you drink grapefruit juice? 

Do you take medications?

If you answer yes to both – please read this whole article to see if your medications are among those that interact with grapefruit juice.

For some medications:

And if you have friends or family members who love their grapefruit and/or grapefruit juice – please let them know about this article.
