That is ironic. Keppra does not interact with any other drugs, but interacts in a bad way with a food? Crazy.
I never bothered to read any grapefruit warnings because I cannot eat citrus fruits anyway (the high acidity causes cankersores) but I would love to know why it causes problems for people taking certain drugs and what happens if a person eats grapefruit while taking one of those drugs.
BTW I take Lamictal and used to take Keppra with it.
