Tasigna and Citrus

I know when you're on Tasigna you are not supposed to have any grapefruit products. But what about other citrus? I thought other citrus was ok but I just read where someone said they stay away from all citrus because of it interacting. Is this true?

Just stick away from the grapefruits and you'll be fine. It's really the only citrus you are likely to drink enough of to make a problem. Another one to avoid would be drinking juice from a Seville orange, but since those oranges are bitter and used to make marmalade you're not going to get it served to you as juice!
