    Re: Can I drink cranberry juice with the meds I am taking?

    I do believe that the only 'juice" that can actually interact or stop the ability of certain meds from working is the grapefruit juice.my son has a liver transplant and that was the only actual juice that was mentioned to stay away from.but if you really want to know for sure,just call your pharmacy,they would be able to tell you for sure.thats who i call with any med related questions.most docs don't even know enough about the actual meds they Rx to really be able to give the proper answers to most med questions,but it IS the pharmacys job to know these answers,so thats where i go.good luck,i am pretty sure the cranberry juice is okay.but better safe than sorry ya know?**
