> Hi,
> I read about your starting up on MAOIs.Good luck!! I was taking Parnate for 18 years and considered it a life-saver. My only side effects were dry mouth (tolerable), ocassional lightheadedness (from standing up too suddenly--but don't let this scare you) and watch out--WEIGHT GAIN. So keep that in mind as a POSSIBLE side effect.

But what I find a bit disturbing is that in someone's previous post, they said that beer and wine are OK. I was shocked because I had always thought that beer is NOT OK and onlly WHITE wine is OK. There is definitely some leeway on some foods, but you should do as much research as you can on the subject of the forbidden foods. Good luck!

In general, Parnate is supposed to promote weight loss. At the very least, it's not supposed to promote weight gain like Nardil and others may. As the previous poster mentioned, 'your mileage may vary'. Side effects are different for every person. I've lost over 90lbs on Parnate (and with diet and exercise changes that were possible because of the Parnate).

Regarding the beer and wine, make sure you are looking at the most recent research. Tap beers and homemade beers and wine should be avoided. Other should be had in moderation, but really is just fine. (Check out the site I mentioned previously.)
