Grapefruit and Medication Can Be a Deadly Combination
- Topic Info:Grapefruit contains an enzyme that can cause the body to metabilize medications faster, possibly resulting in an unintentional overdose. Although doctors have known this information for quite some time, the general public isn't as aware as they should be. The concern is the growing number of new drugs on the market that produce extraordinary side effects when taken with grapefruit.
Dr. David Bailey, Phm, PhD from the Lawson Health Research Insitute lists the drugs on the market that interact with grapefruit, and provides knowledge into how to prevent this deadly mix.
