What do you advise if I'm currently taking Lipitor (atorvastatin) but love grapefruit. will it kill me to have a glass every now and then?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Go ahead

It won't kill you.
It just alters the metabolism of your medication somewhat. If you want daily grapefruit, ask your physician about other possible Rx's.
