Is Pravastatin safe to take while eating grapefruit?

Answer

Hi Nancy,

I'm sure you found an answer to your question already, but I wanted to chime in here in case this information is helpful to others.

Pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor), and fluvastatin (Lescol) have all been deemed safe to take for people who eat grapefruit. Still, I'd talk to your doctor about this, since much of the study done on these medications takes into consideration how much grapefruit or grapefruit juice a person eats/drinks. You'll feel better and we'll feel better if you talk about this with your doctor or pharmacist.
