Re: Calcium Channel Blockers..dont' take with grapfruit juice?
Natalie00, do not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit while taking a calcium channel blocker! If you read your rap (warning) sheet that comes with your medicine it will tell you this. I don't know why, but, I believe it interacts with it and can cause some serious problems. I know this as I use to take a calcium channel blocker myself. Check into a book that lists drug and herb/supplement interactions. You can find a lot on the internet at various web sites. amaz...com is a good place to start. Also, some GNC stores have a computer that you can check drug and vitamin/supplement/herb interactions. Educate yourself before taking anything!
