Hidden Danger of Grapefruit Juice

Grapefruit juice contains certain chemicals that interfere with the metabolism of particular prescription medications in your digestive system. Consequently, more medication remains in your body and can increase the potency of the drug to potentially dangerous levels. Types of medications that dangerously interact with grapefruit juice are anti-anxiety, anti-arrhythmia, anti-depressant, antihistamine, anti-retroviral, ant-seizure, calcium channel blockers, immunosuppressant and statins.
