Limit the amount of grapefruit or grapefruit juice you may eat or drink while being treated with this medication, unless directed otherwise. Grapefruit juice may increase the amount of certain medications in your bloodstream. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details. It's a good idea to talk with your pharmacist before eating lot's of grapefruit, or citrus juice, some medications it interacts with how the medication works.

You can eat the fruit or drink the juice. When taking grapefruit to lower cholesterol,you must eat the fruit rather than drink the juice, because the pectin is in the pulp of the fruit. Grapefruit, as the fruit or juice, is generally recognized as safe by the FDA.

It is better to stay away from grapefruit while on blood pressure medication. if you really want to eat grapefruit give it full 24 hours without taking the medication, then you can eat grapefruit. When ready to get back on medication give it full 24 hours also.

I am on Depakote, Clonazepam (Klonopin),Concerta & Prilosec and was concerned about eating grapefruit while on these medications (as I've heard that there can be a negative response while taking some medications and grapefruit together)...~ I just called my pharmacist and listed all these medications for her, and she said that they are ALL FINEto take while eating grapefruit. YAY!~ She went on to say that mostly, there is a concern with taking cholesterol-lowering medications and eating grapefruit. ~ SO, if you are taking: DEPAKOTE, KLONOPIN (Clonazepam), Concerta, or Prilosec (Omeprazole), NO WORRIES! EAT YOUR GRAPEFRUIT & ENJOY!

I did once and... vomited all night. For the second time when taking clindamycin, I noticed no vomiting. So, better avoid drinking grapefruit juice while taking clindamycin.
