About one-fifth of Americans have grapefruit juice for breakfast -- a time of day when many people also take medications. Grapefruit juice, it turns out, can affect some medications. So you may need to rethink your morning drink.
Don’t drink grapefruit juice if you’re taking any of these medications, unless advised to by your doctor:
Statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs): lovastatin (Mevacor), atorvastatin (Lipitor), simvastatin (Zocor, Vytorin)
