Do oranges interact with drugs?

No oranges do not interact with the drugs and grapefruit only interact with the statin drugs and increase the amount of the drug in your system.

This is absolutely WRONG. Grapefruit interacts with many drugs. It speeds metabolization of some, and slows it for others. Try googling something like this for a non-comprehensive list: 'grapefruit drug interactions 2012'.
Non-comprehensive, because the list is still expanding.

I was referring to the medications the person is taking, they are the ones listed and asked about.

Hi - thank you so much - wondering if fresh oranges eaten when any of these drugs are taken will inhibit their potency or cause adverse problems: baby aspirin, lisinipril, metoprolol, plavix,gylburide, pravastatin?

I was talking to my pharmacist about that because of the grapefruit thing, and she said its just grapefruit, no other citrus fruits.
