The AbbVie nurse did say grapefruit and grapefruit juice would be a good thing to avoid, your meds may vary.

I took everything I occasionally take, even eyes and nasal spray, and it was all approved. Take everything with you.

Tig,  That is what my study nurse told me also.  About the only thing they have approved is Tylenol or Ibuprophen for headaches.  They didn't restrict any food but anything else has to be approved ahead of time.  lol I even went through an allergy attack and didn't  ask if I could take something.  Just put up with it.  No way are they ever going to be able to say that I was in any way non-compliant.

Best to avoid all supplementation during treatment. Many will interfere or alter the test results. Most trial organizers prohibit the use of any supplement while using the study medication. Check with your doctor and pharmacist for their recommendations. Our search function will help you as well. Good luck...
