: Thank you for answering my question on the post below.
: do you know the reason why you cant take zocor and grapefruit
: within hours of each other and is orange juice safe. my prescription
: bottle just says no grapefruit within 2 hrs. thanks for any info.
Anything I say should not substitute for advice from your doctor. The enzyme in the liver that "eats up" grapefruit also "eats up" Zocor. If the enzyme is used on the grapefruit, there may be high blood levels of Zocor.
