A:Grapefruit interacts with many medicines to raise blood levels and increase the risk of side effects, but we doubt that grapefruit was the culprit in your case. This sounds more like a severe allergic reaction to ibuprofen. If it happens again, it could be lethal. Please discuss this with your physician. You may not be able to take ibuprofen or any similar pain relievers (naproxen, ketoprofen or aspirin) ever again.
