Grapefruit interaction ??
Apr 15, 2009
HOw does eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice interfere with today's antiviral meds? Or has that become just an old wive's tale? I take Atripla, but I love grapefruit juice.

Hello and thanks for your post.
Unless your drinking a ton of grapefruit juice, there's nothing to worry about. The interaction between grapefruit and the medications in Atripla are not very significant.
