I need to know what effect grapefruit juice would have on any of the above listed medications, whether adversely or otherwise. In other words, will grapefruit juice mixed with a small amount of alcohol in a mixed drink cause unusual or adverse reactions. My physician states no as long as the mixed drink is taken no more than what I do, such as once every 3 or 4 months.

Yes... unfortunately it does. Grapefruit is a no-no for lots of drugs. My dad takes insulin and he can't eat or drink it and the same thing goes for my metoprolol tartrate. Sorry!!!

Yes it does. But,I'd Be more concerned about the interaction you may have with the Hydrocodone, and the insulin from the Alcohol,rather than the Grapefruit juice. Please read the bottle the scripts came in! Be careful mixing ANY mind altering substance with alcohol!
