Grapefruit juice and potency drugs

Grapefruit juice and potency drugs

Grapefruit juice is known for its useful beneficial components, it contains a huge amount of vitamin C and other important vitamins and organic acids; this juice even helps to treat hypertension and fight hepatitis C! However, grapefruit juice is a disaster for the pharmaceutical companies. This juice so poorly fits with taking drugs that the Americans test almost all new drugs to be compatible with it. In combination with some substances, grapefruit juice may be deadly.

Assumptions about the possible influence of grapefruit juice on drugs effects arose long ago. And lately there have been more and more evidence that drinking this juice along with taking drugs can cause serious adverse health consequences. The Canadian Medical Association Journal published data showing that the list of drugs that are dangerous to take with grapefruit juice increased from 17 to 43 for the period from 2008 to 2012. Particularly dangerous is the combination of grapefruit with antihypertensive agents, immunosuppressive agents, antibiotics, anti-cancer drugs and potency drugs...!

Grapefruit juice affects the pharmacokinetics of certain drugs inhibiting certain enzymes in the small intestine wall, which prevent the absorption of drugs into the body. Blocking these enzymes leads to the fact that the body gets larger amount of drug and its content in the blood increases. This often leads to the appearance of toxic side effects from the drug taken.

Viagra and other potency drugs with the active substance sildenafil in no case should be taken together with the juice, or if you just ate a grapefruit. Grapefruit juice greatly increases the concentration of sildenafil in the blood, which may lead to serious consequences. This combination is fraught with delayed metabolism, increased blood pressure, tachycardia - even death. Vardenafil and tadalafil (active substances of Levitra and Cialis, respectively) also interact with the grapefruit juice. So if you decide to spend an unforgettable evening with your girlfriend/wife, it is better to choose something one: either potency drug, or grapefruit juice.
