I think it would work even better with a couple shots of Prosecco.

This article is about OJ having an effect on blood pressure; affecting the action of medication is different. Depending on your medical situation, and with your doctor's approval, you might try OJ instead of the medication, as a trial.

I can't drink grapefruit juice as it will amplify the effect of my blood pressure medicine. It will cause an overdose effect. I suspect the same is true with the orange juice. I wonder why the doctors don't prescribe grapefruit or oranges instead of Lipitor, or it's family of drugs. Could it be that the pharmacies would lose money? Hmmmm.

For me it makes sense as I am diabetic, and the fruit sugar would cause a blood spice of sugar. But for the rest of you... Now I'm not saying that you should stop your blood pressure meds, but you might work with your doctor and be able to lower, or maybe eliminate them, with proper monitoring. I know that if I could, I would rather have a piece of fruit than a pill.

When I saw the thread title on the home page my first thought was "Hmm, and a little peach schnapps"! Either just may be a solution to our barking dogs problems.

Himself is also diabetic. When his endocrinologist was trying to get him balanced she told him to eliminate all fruit juices from his diet. He still ended up going on insulin and that got him all straightened out. Well, at least his endocrine system. Otherwise he's still pretty .

It really doesn't matter to me whether it does or doesn't, as I am boycotting Florida Citrus. In their greed, they were able to get, then governer Jeb Bush, to start destroying privately owned citrus trees where I live. This was a "grasping at straw" effort to stop citrus canker, which failed. Another example of business getting favored over individual rights.

For me, OJ raises my blood sugar really fast which also raises my BP. There are a whole set of different rules for diabetics. I can eat an orange as it is absorbed more slowly than the juice alone. The same with any fruit. Most fruits are very high in sugar. Remove the juice and the sugar goes straight along with it. I would love to drink OJ. Just not a good idea in my case. And I control my diabetes with diet alone.
