statins

i went to my pharmacist about grapefruit while on statins.

when i was on simvastatin i was told no grapefruit what so ever, im now on atorvastatin ( my meds are blister packed ) and it says no more than 1 or 2 small glasses of grapefruit juice a day. Wow excellent i love grapefruit,

so i went to see my pharmacist she diappeared for about 20 mins. she said shed looked on the nhs web site which said no more than 1.2ltrs of grapefruit a day, so i asked if it was ok for me to have a grapefruit at the weekends and she said yes......happy days

  • Amazing as I also love grapefruit, thank you so much I am sending my husband out to buy me some. Have a wonderful day 🌹👏🏻

  • Much too acidic for me Steve. . . . . . . . :p but healthy stuff if you enjoy it. For me it's Elderflower, which has a tang, but doesn't cause any contortions of the face !

    Enjoy ......................................................... xx
