Should you avoid grapefruit juice?
Switching to another medication may keep juice on the menu.
Drinking grapefruit juice may interfere with some prescription medications. But you may not have to avoid the juice. "It's much less of a problem than you've heard. And in most instances you can drink it," says Dr. Bruce Bistrian, chief of clinical nutrition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a professor at Harvard Medical School.
