Meds And Grapefruit Sometimes Don't Mix

As we get older, many of us may find ourselves taking daily medications to help keep things on track - for blood pressure, diabetes and so on. You may know that some medications should not be used with alcohol because of possible adverse effects - but did you know that quite a few meds should not be taken with grapefruit? Taking the popular breakfast fruit or it's juice with certain medications can drastically alter their effect, and can actually be quite dangerous. Your medications should be marked by the pharmacy as such, but we all know how we are in such a rush that we don't read those things - so take a moment now to look at those pill bottles.
