Contraceptives: Grapefruit can hinder the absorption of contraceptives by women. Women who take birth control pills may lose their contraception if they eat grapefruit after sex.
Anti-allergic drugs: Grapefruit may induce adverse reactions such as terfenadine and other anti-allergic drugs, causing symptoms such as dizziness, palpitations, and arrhythmia.
Immunosuppressant: Grapefruit can increase the blood concentration of immunosuppressive agents such as cyclosporine and increase liver and kidney toxicity. If these drugs are eaten with fruits such as grapefruit for a long time, there is a risk of inducing tumors.
