Grapefruit juice interaction with drugs can be deadly

More prescription drugs are on the market that can interact with grapefruit juice with potentially serious effects including sudden death, Canadian doctors warn.

Many of the drugs are common, such as some cholesterol-lowering statins, antibiotics and calcium channel blockers used to treat high blood pressure. Others include agents used to fight cancer or suppress the immune system in people who have received an organ transplant.
