Good afternoon everyone.
As a newbie on the forum a quick introduction first. I was diagnosed with PPMS two years ago and walking and balance have deteriorated steadily since then. However I am still upright (mostly) so am trying to keep that way. This forum has been incredibly helpful in answering a lot of my questions, even though you didn’t know I was asking them so thank you.
My latest question is this. My Neuro has recommended Statins (for MS not cholesterol) which I am now taking without any problems (I’ll try anything once). However it says on the packet that I should avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice. Not that I eat/drink this a lot, but because I’ve been told to avoid it, my brain keeps reminding me how much I like it.
Do any of you know if consuming grapefruit with statins is a big no no or is it just an advisory?
