Hi all-
I have been reading through your correspondence on this thread, and have found the suggestions very helpful. Currently, I am on a 10-day tapering off period for my antidepressants. In about 3 weeks, I will be starting on Parnate.

I have a few questions about the diet, drug restrictions, and such. I have a pshychiatrist who is pretty good, but a little ill-informed about the more recent discoveries about "safe" foods and hypertensive crisis medications.

1. He suggested that I get a medic alert-type bracelet. I want to get a remotely fashionable one, so I need to get it inscribed with a short description rather than a phone number to call.
What should I have engraved on it? (I have 36 characters)

2. There are a few foods which I am not sure are "safe" at all or not:
- pickles (Kosher dill)
- Campbell's soup
- Malt beverages (like Skyy Blue, Smirnoff Ice)
- Thai food (curries)
- Aspartame (like in Diet Coke)
- Vegetarian frozen products (Morningstar Farms products)

3. Which "emergency" medication/s should I ask for? Should I also ask for pain medication in case of a severe migraine?

Thanks in advance,
