Re: high blood pressure

From what I have read grapefruit or juice should not be taken with certain blood pressure meds, it interferes or amplifies the effects.

Re: high blood pressure

Hi, I've heard that certain high blood pressure meds shouldn't be taken two hours before or after drinking grapefruit juice also...only thing...I don't know which class of meds they are referring to...the calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, diuretics etc. Does anyone know?

Re: high blood pressure

From what I have heard and read, most meds. are not to be mixed with grapefruit, especially any cholesterol lowering stuff, and most BP meds. Here is a site maybe U can check to see if your med. is listed, if in doubt, call your pharmacist. Good luck!! <IMG SRC=""> JJ
