Chef Tips

Eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice can cause serious interactions with certain drugs, including statins like Lipitor and Zocor, and many antidepressant and immunosuppressant meds. The list of drugs that interact with grapefruit is long, so if on different medications, it’s best to check with the doctor to see if it’s OK for any form of grapefruit to be on the menu.
