I have been told never to drink or consume grapefruit/juice while on Xanax, but can I use soaps and shampoos that have grapefruit oil extracted from the rind in them? I can't find anything online that leans either way on the subject, any help is appreciated!!
You will probably be fine with the external use of these type extracts. Problem with grapefruit juice is it drastically changes the pH (acid levels) in you stomach which in turn affects the absorption of the medication. Topical exposure shouldn't change stomach pH enough to make a difference. If still uncertain, contact your pharmacist and ask them.
Putting this on externally well be just fine you should not have any problems Just as Laurie says it's more the way it makes lots of pills break down in our systems is why we can't Use it as a drink But there is no problem if it's in a soap or lotion etc. Have a good day. Chuck1957
