> Jessica - To answer your question, I don't think there is any inherent difference in food restrictions between the Nardil and Parnate except to the extent that they may act differently on different individuals.
> My remark on the beer and cheese was meant to apply to MAOs generally.
> I share the same characteristic of the last poster vis a vis Parnate (and Nardil) - sleepy during the day and up at night. Both of these medications - Nardil in particular - reved up my sex drive (and pursuit of partners) The problem was at high doses I was restricted in my range of fulfillment options. It did make for greater creativity. Some of you folks may have a greater tolerance for higher doses generally. I haven't pushed Parnate beyond 50 mg. Phil

Thanks for the clarification. I definitely know the some people seem to be med sensitive and others are med resistant. I almost always have to take the highest dose of meds. My sister takes less than a "medicinal" dosage of her med and does fine.

For those of you with "Treatment Resistant Depression", here's a great site. It outlines the suggested med route for TRD. My doctor has followed the suggestions (on her own) which gave me renewed faith in her.
