No - grapefruit can affect the rate at which the statin drugs are processed by the liver. That can be dangerous, because slower breakdown of the drug means you’ll have more of the drug in your bloodstream. This can cause certain side effects and affect how well the drug works.
Just to add, its only grapefruit, other citrus fruit is ok.
