> Did you mean to say 'not known to' ? I'm not questioning you at all, I just wasn't aware that this difference existed. I thought people on Nardil had to adhere to the same diet restrictions as those on Parnate and that the same risks were involved. How interesting.

Hi Jessica.

First of all, it would be very silly of you not to question me. :-)

It is true that I have never been wrong, though. One time I thought I was wrong, but it turned out that I was mistaken.

There's a joke in there somewhere.

I'm glad you replied the way you did. Others may have also misinterpreted what I said, which of course is dangerous. I wish that I had the good sense to better clarify my statement.

The key word in my post is "spontaneous". For some people, Parnate can cause high blood pressure spikes all by itself. They don't have eat anything for this to happen. It is thus spontaneous. This is what was being referred to in the post I replied to. To the best of my recollection, I have never seen this happen at all with Nardil.

Of course, both of these MAOIs, along with Marplan, are capable of producing a dangerous hypertensive reaction to the foods and drugs that are to be avoided.

Is my post still confusing?
