how much grapefruit juice did you drink? typically it only leads to slightly increased levels and takes longer to excrete, it shouldn't make you pass out especially if you're already benzo tolerant

I can tell you from experience and research that grapefruit juice is fairly overhyped in general, if you just drank an average amount of fresh grapefruit it shouldn't have a dramatic effect like that.

could be something else, are you on other meds? maybe go to a doc

I drank a bunch , and had an extremely stressful day , the 2 mgs I took was the second 2 mg dose , and I was extremely thirsty.
I think the conjunction of all the days events , on top of a slightly increased effect , did it.
thank you for the reply .
