Good reminders! Grapefruit juice I know can't be taken with Seroquel, which is what I take every night for general anxiety and sleep. It can cause serious serious reactions. Also, certain medications say " NO SUNLIGHT" , and boy, they are not fooling when they say that. What will happen then is you will get what they call a photosynthesis reaction..you will either have one hell of a good tan, or a blistered up burn, or a mix, and you can get blood poisoning from it.
