MAOI Wowie!

Posted by Jackd on July 28, 2002, at 17:13:52

I've finally decided after getting a second opinion that Parnate is my next option. I just need a little support from any of you who have been or are on MAOI's.

First of all, how long should I wash out for? No, let me refraise that: What is the shortest period that I can wash out for without sacrificing too much safety? I'm on Remeron 30mg, Lamictal 200mg, Concerta 18mg, Klonopin .5 mg, and Lithium 900mg. I only plan on stopping the Remeron (unless someone suggests I stop any others), and as of last night I have stopped it cold turkey. I know, I know... I am taking off from work for the next week or so in order to do this and thus I have a small window of time to suffer...

Also, from the little I know, it seems the main culprit of drug interactions with MAOI's and AD's are SSRI's.

I have tried reading up as much as I can regarding the diet. I know I can't pick through trash and eat banana peels and rotting protein and dairy products, but what CAN I eat? I mean, what's a good, fast, easy food source that I can eat? Mind you, I'm 220lbs and a powerlifter. I eat 6 meals a day, and peanuts just won't cut it. Is pasta ok? Can I drink supermarket milk or do I need to drink it straight from the udder?
What is out there that tastes good, is loaded with calories and protein, and practical?
