high blood pressure and eating grapefruit
Teena63 posted:
I HEARD along time ago, or read more than once that a person with high blood pressure should not eat grapefruit, or even drink grapefruit juice because it interferes with the medication? Can someone clarify this for me

Hi there!

Welcome to the WebMD Community. Here is some information from our site about grapefruit affecting medications that I hope will be helpful.

For specific questions about high blood pressure and grapefruit, I'd recommend posting to our Hypertension Community .
