Can Honeybells interfere with PI absorbtion

Jan 19, 2006

I've been on HIV meds for almost twenty years now. I've enjoyed a type of Florida citrus, Honeybells, for much longer than that. I've always thought that Honeybells were a type of orange. They're not. They're a tangerine-grapefruil hybrid available only during a few weeks in January. Does anyone know if Honeybells interfere with PIs or other HIV meds like grapefruit can? Thanks, Kevin, Chicago

Response from Dr. Young

Kevin- Thanks for your post. I'm not aware about any such interactions; you'd probably have to eat many pounds of honeybells to even approach a level where there could be a problem.

So, bon appetite. BY
