Is Gemfibrozil A Satin And Can It Be Taken With Grapefruit Juice?

I take gemfibrozil and niacin for cholesterol and triglycerides and I like grapefruit juice and I would like to know if I can drink grapefruit juice.

Answer

Hi Jim,

Gemfibrozel is not a statin. Here is a post you may want to review. Even though statin is in the title the post discusses more than statin medication.

Is Grapefruit Safe to Eat When Taking a Statin Drug?
