Marcus Aurelius: It's too bad the author was too busy sucking his own dick to actually, you know, list the drugs involved.Maybe there's a prescription that will help him with that.

abb3w: ...Oxycodone? Has anyone told Limbaugh?
Rik01: Where I grew up, we had all sorts of citrus groves all over the place. A grapefruit grove was right across the street and my folks knew the owner, so we could go in there and pick what we wanted for free.I never developed a taste for that large, juicy, freakin' sour fruit. People raved over pink grapefruit and you could by gallons of assorted juices with the stuff in it from places ranging from roadside stands to grocery stores.They used to sell 'fruit salad' packed in jars, meaning lots of citrus of different types and, inevitably, big chunks of grape fruit.I used to like to throw grape fruit, but was never keen about eating the nasty things unless I had about a pound of sugar to pour over a serving.'Grape' fruit. Name's a pretty deceptive thing. The only similarity it has to a grape is that it's round.I think I was in my early 20's when I first heard of some folks not being able to eat the stuff. Everyone else seemed to rave on and on about how healthy it was. Then the diet folks got on their kick about this bitter, yellow orb and it was raised nearly to sainthood.I should have known about the lurking danger when I realized that the many home booze makers we had turned nearly everything they could get their hands on into alcohol except for grapefruit. (Had some pretty awful wine in my time, including some that was a tad chunky, but, fortunately, never anything made from grape fruit.)One of the medications I take is on that list. I just noticed that the pharmacy stuck a yellow label on the bottle warning not to take it with grape fruit. The same warning label color they use when telling you to take a medication with food.I wonder about the first person to chow down on one of those luscious looking yellow orbs, getting a mouthful of that bitter juice and still thinking it was good.Then again, back in the day, they tended to think that the more nasty medicine tasted, the better it was for you.That might explain a lot.
Godscrack: I think you mean Oxycontin.

Barfmaker: The entire article just kept saying that grapefruit can interact in a bad way with prescription drugs.Over and over.It just kept saying that same thing.Over and over.Over and over.Over and over.
blatz514: Diogenes: One of the deadliest fruits on Earth. Why, it tries to warn you itself with its terrible taste.Link farked but I'm going to agree with you. That shiat is awful.

Snarfangel: SmellsLikePoo: "With thanks to Fark.com user 'Snarfangel' for the drug list (not included in original press release)."Snarfangel:nice work there...I can copy/paste with the best of them. :)It's good to get such information out, though. I'd hate to lose a fellow Farker to a grapefruit.
Snotnose: My parental units used to put salt and sugar on grapefruit, made it pretty tasty. I think it was Alton Brown who told why salt nullified the grapefruit bitterness, wish I could remember. Howsomever, methinks eating 3 days worth of salt kinda makes the health benefits of the grapefruit irrelevant.As to the guy who said it burned the inside of his mouth, I have the same problem with pineapple. Especially the core. Which sucks, because I love fresh pineapple and the core is the best part.
elysive: Diogenes: One of the deadliest fruits on Earth. Why, it tries to warn you itself with its terrible taste.Dont talk shiat about the most badass fruit in the world. Mmmm...ruby red.
Spiralmonkey: I'm a bit surprised the grapefruit interaction thingie was considered news enough to make an article - or a fark thread. It's been known about for years. Is this some sort of Mayan calendar thing, where we're going round the cycle again?
