I know that with some medicines you cannot have grapefruit if you take them. What about effexor and propanalol? Is it dangerous to have grapefruit if you take them?

Grapefruit can decrease the breakdown of Propranolol causing higher levels.

Thanks. so it's not safe at all or yes in small amounts, or if I consume grapefruit hours apart from when I take propanalol? My dr. is extremely cautious about everything and didn't mention anything. if it makes any difference, I take 40mg.

Probably okay if you leave several hours space. Watch out for propranolol side effects
Such as sedation and low blood pressure.

Thank you.
Do people really get sedation/low blood pressure on 40mg?

Mild increase in bleeding with advil and effexor but
Usualy not a problem unless there is an underlying
Bleeding condition.
