I would like to try a fat flush for 10 days - 3 8oz glasses

This answer was rated:

I would like to try a fat flush for 10 days - 3 8oz glasses daily - that includes grapefruit. I have heard that can be dangerous with certain medications - and right now I take Diovan, crestor, celexa and nexium. Am I in any danger?
