    Accidentally drank grapefruit soda on atorvastatin 10 mg

    I am on atorvastatin 10 mg, my last dose was last night and I accidentally drank a can of sparkling grapefruit soda with 11% grapefruit puree and grapefruit juice and I am freaking out. I'm so scared something bad will happen.

    I've been taking atorvastatin for over a decade and I never heard of this so I looked it up.

    "Atorvastatin interacts with grapefruit juice if you drink large quantities (more than 1.2 litres daily), but an occasional glass is thought to be safe."

    A drink with 11% grapefruit juice doesn't even fall in this safe category so
