However I am wondering if anyone has had a problem getting Parnate from their pharmacy. I was told it was on back order and that there is no release date yet for it.

Wow - changing your meds just like that isnt' so easy. Is there another pharmacy you can go to? What about mail order?

> I also am kinda curious about what you all take when you have a hypertensive crisis. My dr. told me not to worry about it and not to really be concerned about the food restrictions.

I can't believe how many times I've heard this! You should have an emergency pill - I take Chlorpromazine (Thorazine). It is safe, it works, and you can take it even if you aren't sure if your blood pressure is spiking.

And if you're on Parnate, you should be adhering to the diet restrictions. I don't know why your doctor thinks you can ignore them. It's true the current lists are more lax than the ones prior to 1996, but you still need to stay away from certain foods. You may ask him why he thinks you won't have hypertensive crisis if you eat one of the items.

Good luck and I hope you can get back on it soon.
