Grapefruit and medication. Possibly a fatal mix

We’ve all been told never take medication with alcohol. Well you can add grapefruit to that if you take any of these 85 different drugs.

How serious could this really be? Well, David Bailey of Lawson Health Research Institute says “Half of these drugs actually can cause sudden death” (hours after eating or drinking grapefruit.)

Grapefruit has compounds furanocoumarins that can keep drugs from breaking down, keeping more of these drugs inside your body, allowing them to build up to lethal levels or toxic levels.

Below is a link to the drugs that have fatal side effects with grapefruit. And as a fair warning, the report by Canadian Medical Association Journal shows that not many doctors know about these dangerous combonations.

Depression? Or painful erection?

When some people are depressed they often rely on prescription drugs to get them out of bed and make them feel happier overall. One side effect of depression is erectile dysfunction and no man ever feels great when that occurs.

However, Pfizer has made an antidepressant called Zoloft, to help combat depression and make you your fun, sappy self again. Which could mean, no more ED. But one unusual side effect of Zoloft is painful erection. Unlike Viagra, it doesn’t help get you erect, or help improve your stamina. It instead makes your erection potentially painful. And some patients have described these erections as “unbearable”.

So, aspiring male adult actors, if you’re depressed, Zoloft is not for you.

Zoloft is a prescription antidepressant drug prescribed to patients with severe depression.

**You should never use Zoloft for anything other than it’s intended use with a prescription from a doctor. Prescription drugs can be hazardous or even fatal when misused!**
