> Why does he say that? I've never heard of that? Does that mean you don't have to follow the diet? If you do have to follow the diet - why? If there is no danger of a hypertensive crisis (according to your doctor) why would you need to watch what you eat?

the only things i can't have are soy sauce, marmite, broad beans and alcohol (he says not to take alcohol with any drug cuz it does not allow the drug to be metabolized which makes good sense to me) ....

basically i got the feeling that if i ate any of those foods i would have a mild headache... i don't particularly want any kind of headache...

i suppose i do fear getting a migraine or worse .. even if there's only a 0.1% chance, i still wouldn't want to risk it...

> Sorry - don't mean to sound accusatory, I'm just baffled by the reasoning. Also, I've had severe migraine (a common effect) without have elevated blood pressure from something I ate while on Parnate. The Thorazine greatly helped the migraine. I'm wondering if while you may not be endangering your heart/life if you are still prone to a tyramine migraine.

hey no prob i don't take it as anything but genuine curiousity :)
- remember, as a victim of ignorant and unavailable docs, my first instinct is to bombard people with questions too - it's tough to have to treat yourself :)

... okay let me ask you a question.... how bad is a tyramine migraine, like what does it feel like, and can you just take regular aspirin for it?
