Grapefruit seed extract is supposed to be a good herbal preventative but I have heard that it is counteracts the blood pressure meds.

Hi Carole - it depends on the specific medication which you are referring to. If you look at the combination of ingredients Amlodipine / Benazepril (as listed at the top of this thread), they are said to have a minimal/negligible interaction with grapefruit (as opposed to other meds which could be considered dangerous to take with grapefruit). Grapefruit can, however, increase your risk of side effects from this particular drug, so if you are going to take both together it is important to make your doctor aware of this since they will probably want to double check your medical history and monitor you. Hope this helps!
