TIL that grapefruit juice can be fatal when taken with certain medications.

YES! This is actually really important for anyone who’s taking any kind of risky medication.

Grapefruit contains a substance which suppresses liver function. This means that medications and other chemicals in your blood aren’t filtered out as quickly, so they have an increased effect. In short you can overdose on your normal meds by adding grapefruit. Not enough doctors warn people about that.
