Xanax and grapefruit may have serious interactions. Xanax is one of the most popular anti-anxiety and anti-panic attack medications in the United States. Millions of people take it every day. But there is one common food item which you should never eat when you are taking Xanax -- grapefruit.

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice can interact with Xanax and potentially cause serious problems.

Xanax and grapefruit can slow down the body's normal breakdown of several drugs, including benzodiazepines, the class of drugs Xanax is in. Potentially dangerous levels of the drug could build up in the blood.

Some studies show the effects could still be felt in the body up to three days after having Xanax and grapefruit.

The best advice is to talk to your doctor before taking Xanax. He or she will likely tell you to simply avoid Xanax and grapefruit.
