It's true. You should not ingest grapefruit while taking Liptor, as it could increase the active ingredient's concentration in your bloodstream to unsafe levels. This applies to multiple statins including Lipitor (atorvastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin), and Zocor (simvastatin).

FYI any medication that reacts with grapefruit will also react with CBD oil. The CBD oil does the same thing as grapefruit.
