    Talk to your doctor about whether you can eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice while taking ramelteon. Other than that, you do not need to make any major changes to your diet while taking this medication. However, taking it with a meal that is especially high in fat is not a good idea; this can make the drug less effective.
