(I'll skip the posting issue.)

Katie - I kind of understand why MAOI's are a later, not first choice, but I totally agree that they shouldn't wait so long to try them. I've been through so many years of depression and failed drug attempts (legal) and Parnate is the first thing in ages to help me. I felt/feel like you! I'm so excited to actually have some relief and perhaps start thinking about a future again. It's a little scary to trust it, but I, too, am just going slowly and trying to enjoy.

Regarding the MAOI diet lists on the site I mentioned (, they actually aren't completely inconsistent. For the yeast extract it lists specifically Marmite as having a very high tyramine count, and later it mentions that yeast extract is okay except for Marmite. The herring it first states has a level of 2.45 per serving which is within aceptable levels unless a great amount is eaten. Then later it lists it as an acceptable food. I agree that it is a bit contradictory about whether it is unlimited or not. My take is that based on the tyramine level listed, it's okay in limited amounts. Completely my opinion though!

Let me know if you are still confused! (It's not easy...) And I also agree that this site is great. I've learned so much from everyone here.
