In reply to New to MAOIs, posted by eln on October 11, 2002, at 16:40:23

Its almost time- I start on Thursday, and will be going to see my psychiatrist in an hour to get the prescription for Parnate. The washout period has been difficult, as I have had to have my mom come to stay with me and have had to "play sick" to get away with the minimum amount of work and social interaction while I have tapered off my SSRIs for 2 weeks and spent 2 disturbing weeks off all medications.
Thank all of you who have posted on here- I am in the process of educating my psychiatrist, who considers himself to be knowledgeable on the subject of MAOIs (as he has prescribed them to many patients successfully) yet works from a diet list created in the late 70's.
I got my Medic Alert bracelet, an automatic wrist blood pressure monitor, purse to carry my emergency meds and cell phone in, and a very detailed wallet medication card.
I will let you all know how its going. Meanwhile, I have been fattening myself up by gorging myself on all the cheeses, foreign chocolates, aged meats, and chiantis that I will no longer be able to eat.

I had a question about one more thing for now: is Tequila (major brand like Jose Cuervo) OK?

Thanks, E
