Is it safe to eat grapefruit whilst taking Quetiapine?

 I know you can’t drink grapefruit juice with it as it can interfere with medication but is eating whole grapefruit o.k?

    I would recommend talk to your pharmacy.

      Thanks for your response. I’ve had someone saying that eating or drinking grapefruit can increase the potency of the meditation so even if the pharmacist says anything different I don’t think it is worth risking it just in case x

    You can not eat grapefruit whole or in juice form, it magnifies your medication potency
