Lemon Juice Drug Interaction
retiredgramps posted:
I have read that Lemon Juice can lower blood glucose in some people. I would like to try this but I need to know if Lemon Juice interacts with certain drugs. I asked my Pharmacist and she did not know and of course we all know that grapefruit juice does interact with drugs and these two fruits (Lemon&Grapefruit) appear to be in the same family of fruits. I take 9 prescriptions-- Lipitor, Digoxin,Lisinopril,Dilt-Cd, Metformin,Warfarin,Metoprolol Succ ER and Hctz. I also tried researching on the the internet but it was no help! Thanks for any help.

Hi, I honestly don't know. But I've asked a pharmacist friend at Fit4D and I'll let you know what he says. Laurie

Louise-----You posted over two weeks ago that a pharmicist was researching this question. Have you an answer? Sorry for being impatient!
Louise_WebMD_Staff responded:
That was Laurie. Let me see if I can't track her down. Our health professionals are very busy and Laurie volunteers her time on this board. Something might have come up in her practice.
LJAndieRNP responded:
So according to the pharmacist: The acidity of lemon juice could have some minor effects, but lemon juice doesn't contain the same enzyme inhibitor that is found in grapefruit juice. This enzyme inhibitor is the culprit in all of the major interactions between grapefruit and certain medications. It is not found in lemons, so feel free to drink your freshly-squeezed lemon aid. Hope that helps, Laurie
