Tekturna treats high blood pressure.
Originally grapefruit was found to interact with only felodipine. This was discovered during a clinical trial because grapefruit was used for flavoring.
Over the last 20 years dozens of medications have been found to interact with grapefruit. Many different classes of drugs.
I don't see any info on Tekturna interacting with grapefruit, but then again I don't know if it has been tested.
I don't particularly like the taste of grapefruit, but I realize some people do. But I don't know why anyone would knowingly drink or eat a fruit that could cause irreparable bodily harm if they wound up in the Emergency Department because of an accident and a well-meaning doctor administers a grapefruit reacting drug.
Why risk it?
