Grapefruit or grapefruit juice, is one, are there any others??? Can my husband have garlic??? When he was on Sutent he could not have garlic because it caused bleeding, so can he have it on Afinitor??
Grapefruit and its juice are the only documented food / drug interactions for Afinitor.
I was only told not to have grapefruit (or St John's Wort with Ibrance), and with Afinitor I'm using a dexamethasone mouth rinse for sores. 4X's per day at first and now I've been able to back off of that quite a bit. Since Afinitor affects the digestive tract the same way it does the mouth, I'm looking for something other than prilosec to help with that - something soothing!
