Not enough info. I take Lipitor, with water. Does that mean I can't have grapefruit, orange or apple juice later in the day?

What if you take them with prune juice? Will they go through you faster? So fast, that they wouldn't have time to be absorbed---

"'Your best approach,' says Cynthia Reilly, an executive at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists,'is to take your medications with water."

Hmmm. Maybe you should just be glad that modern medicinal advances have provided you with these pills to help improve your quality of life. And also be glad that someone wrote an article giving you good advice. Maybe taking your pills with water isn't the worst thing in the world.
