I have heard I am not supposed to eat grapefruit because of statin meds... but I had never heard not to eat citrus of any kind because of HIV medications... Is there any issue there? And is there an issue taking .25 Mg Simvistatin daily on grapefruit?
salt; Yes just as it says and pretty much with most medications if you really need your grapefruit talk to you doctor or Pharmacist. This slows down the way it is metabolised in your body by holding sometimes toxic levels in your kidneys and liver and more so on statin drugs but also on many hiv meds.
