What about the "grapefruit juice effect"? - There is an effect of grapefruit juice known as the "grapefruit juice effect". Two components found in grapefruit juice, naringin and naringenin†, inhibit production of an enzyme, thus increasing the rate of absorption for certain classes of drugs. You may want to check with your physician or pharmacist to see if there is any interaction between your medication and the naringin and naringenin*.
