Do Cara Cara navel oranges effect certain medications the way grapefruit does?


Q. Does Cara Cara effect certain drugs the way grapefruit does? I’m a pharmacist and have been asked that question.


A. Cara Cara oranges are not part grapefruit; they are a navel orange. Although they may appear similar due to coloring, current literature does not report furanocoumarin compounds in Cara Cara oranges.
