    Yes. Grapefruit and certain other citrus fruits, such as Seville oranges, can interfere with several kinds of prescription medications. Don't take these interactions lightly. Some can cause potentially dangerous health problems. PLAQUENIL should be used with caution in patients with hepatic disease or alcoholism, in whom a reduction in dosage may be necessary, or in conjunction with known hepatotoxic drugs. Isolated cases of abnormal liver function tests have been reported; fulminant hepatic failure has also been reported. CYPs break down medications, reducing the blood levels of many of them. Grapefruit and a few of its close relatives, such as Seville oranges, tangelos, pomelos and Minneolas, contain a class of chemicals called furanocoumarins. Furanocoumarins disrupt the normal function of CYPs.
