> Jessica - thanks for the trial tests! How large an MAO doseare you taking? I used to be quite a cheese devotee before the MAO era. I plan to try these cheeses (as well possibly as the Kraft mac and cheese) also. Those cheeses are technically considered fresh and soft, although they can have a bit of a bite - so the lack of a prohibition makes sense.

I'm currently down to 50mg (I was up to 100mg) - that could effect the effect! However I've had no reaction whatsoever and I've eaten a fair amount at a time. The Gruyere was especially exciting for me as I have had a good, sharp, hard cheese in ages. I believe the inside of brie (not the rind) is okay too, but I haven't tried that yet. So, eat with joy! (Hopefully I'm not an anomoly.)

And yes, I wish my doctor was more knowledgable, but I guess she can't know everything in depth. Especially when MAOIs aren't prescribed very often anymore. I try to update her on what I find so she can pass it on to other patients. I've learned much more from the web and user groups than I have from her (about Parnate).
