Q. Does grapefruit interfere with Pravachol the way it does with other statin-type cholesterol-lowering drugs?A. No. Pravachol is not metabolized by the same enzyme that is important for Lipitor, Mevacor or Zocor. Consequently, grapefruit does not raise blood levels of Pravachol as it does for other statins.Write to the Graedons in care of The Sun, 501 N.

SARASOTA, FlA. - The Orioles finished their Grapefruit League schedule with a 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays under the lights at Ed Smith Stadium on Thursday night. The Rays plated the winning run in the top of the ninth off left-hander Troy Patton when former Oriole Wilson Betemit's sacrifice fly scored Desmond Jennings, who singled to open the inning and went to third on Jake DePew's single and ensuing errors by right-fielder Mike Yastrzemski. Jonathan Schoop tied the game in the eighth inning with a two-out, run-scoring double off the bottom of the centerfield wall off right-hander Merrill Kelly.

Grapefruit, as a winter fruit, goes way back in my culinary memory. I see my grandmother in her kitchen, me and my younger sister on high stools beside her. In my grandmother's hands is a giant grapefruit, Indian River variety, most likely. I watch as her large hands slowly peel the grapefruit like an orange and hand sections into our small greedy ones. Even as a 5-year-old child, I loved the sweet-tart taste, the juiciness, the shocking-pink interior against the yellow peel. My grandmother was the only person in the family who could peel a whole grapefruit into one large spiral of skin, and I thought it was a marvelous accomplishment.

Patients have come into my office waving your column about the dangers of grapefruit and drugs like Plendil, Procardia and Hismanal. Where does this come from? I can't find this research anywhere. Is this interaction clinically important?One review for physicians was published in the Medical Letter (Aug. 18, 1995). The interaction is very important although it is not mentioned in standard drug references. Certain drug levels can be increased up to 1,000 percent. We heard of a case in which a young man died from cardiac arrest after taking Seldane with grapefruit juice.

Eating grapefruit is like working out. It is something you say you are going to do more of, starting tomorrow, or maybe the day after.Tomorrow has arrived in my life. It came in the form of a cardboard box that sits on the kitchen floor and holds 240,000 grapefruit.That number is a guess. A more accurate count would be available if I could see the bottom of the pile. For the time being all I can see is a mountain of grapefruit, about as tall and as unchanging as Mount Everest.I meant to say a mountain of "delicious" grapefruit.

Grapefruit was first identified in Barbados and grows in clusters, like grapes. Some say this accounts for the name. But that's not conclusive. "Fruit experts disagree about the origins of grapefruit, how it was named and even what species it is. But there is little debate about how delicious it is," Alice Waters says in Chez Panisse Fruit. This low-calorie fruit (about 40 calories in a medium half) is high in vitamin C and potassium. Donna Pierce writes for the Chicago Tribune.

I have received conflicting information from my doctor, a couple of pharmacists and patient-information inserts about how to avoid interactions between statins and grapefruit. I hope you can clarify this. I have been avoiding grapefruit (though not other citrus) completely, and would like to be able to eat it again if it is safe to do so. Certain cholesterol-lowering drugs such as atorvastatin (Lipitor), lovastatin (Mevacor) and simvastatin (Zocor) interact with compounds in grapefruit and its juice.

Q. My parents live in Florida and have a grapefruit tree. Although they love the fresh fruit, they have stopped eating it because of the problem of grapefruit interactions with medicines. I eat a grapefruit almost every day because it is so satisfying. I find I am not tempted to snack after breakfast. My doctor has just prescribed BuSpar for stress, and I would like to know if there is a problem with grapefruit. Would I have to avoid grapefruit altogether, or could I take my pill an hour or two later?

BRADENTON, Fla. -- The competition for the reserve catcher role may not be the most compelling story in spring training for the Orioles, but it was very much on display in Monday's 7-6 victory over the host Pittsburgh Pirates at McKechnie Field. Steve Clevenger got the hot-hitting Orioles offense started in the second inning with a leadoff home run, and Johnny Monell entered later and delivered the game-winning single in the eighth to give the Orioles their seventh straight Grapefruit League victory.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- After being rained out Thursday, the Orioles will face the Phillies this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium. We will have an interesting pitching matchup, as Ubaldo Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $50-million deal with the Orioles last month, will face A.J. Burnett, who was one of the club's top offseason targets. How's that for spring training intrigue? Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who was scheduled to start Thursday, will pitch in relief to get his work in.
