Hi there. The reaction is known and high risk. MAOs can cause hypotension on their own but Cause hypertension with other medications that are contraindicated.

Here is the drug interaction listed in

phenelzine methylphenidate
Applies to: Nardil (phenelzine), Ritalin (methylphenidate)
Using phenelzine together with methylphenidate is not recommended. Combining these medications can cause dangerously high blood pressure and even death

Cant remember but dont think it was occipital.
Had a BP cuff and a few Nifedipine pills I took to reduce my pressure. Watched the pressure go from that High level back to under 150/90.. Without a cuff or Antigtpertensive pills on hand I would have had to go to the ER or I might have stroked out.

I started on 5 mg and went up to 10. That was my first dose of 10 mg. I also had that reaction after eating Parmasean cheese.
I take 5 mg now and have never had another reaction but it still could occur.
The pharmacist never fills the prescription for Ritalin until he informs me of the danger of taking Nardil and Ritalin together. I explain my awareness and my doctor knowing I will never take more than 5 mg, separated by at least 6 hours.
