I've been drinking grapefruit juice for a year while taking xanax and didn't realize that I wasn't suppose to. Will this make the xanax more detectable in my urine as well as my bloodstream?

In some drugs, ones that are affected by a certain enzyme in our bodies, have a synergistic effect when ingested with grapefruit juice. It causes the effect of the xanax to be more pronounced IN SOME PEOPLE. Since you have been doing this for over a year with no ill effects, I don't think there is a reason to worry. If you're still worried about these possible side effect, talk to your doc next time you see him/her. If you are really worried, call and make an appoimtment to see the doc and explain your apprehensions.
Hope you have a go day.

Always be proactive in your own health. Asking lots of question or use the interreactor above. I just had to drop orange juice, but that's ok, as I never did like it much anyway with a double of vodka! Oh , bygone days of yore! Good luck to you, & no I have not had a drink of anything alcoholic in years & years, for all you others working on my problem... Mary
