Thanks for all the support - I am up to my full dosage now (30 mg/day) and so far things are going fine. I am losing weight (my appetite has decreased), and my biggest problem seems to be with insomnia. I was already taking sleeping pills before, and I had to increase my dose.
I haven't tried any of the foods in dispute (like any cheeses or wines), but my doctor and I plan to do some in-office trials in the next few weeks.

I am still searching for a pain medication that would be OK to take in case of a reaction - I am unfortunately allergic to codeine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone. Darvon is supposedly unsafe, and demerol is of course out of the question. I am not an expert at this- even my doctor is stumped. Are there other medications I should look up or get in touch with the manufacturers? I know they all seem to list their products as interacting adversely in order to protect themselves legally, but they can't ALL be that bad...

Hopefully, I will never need this, but I also don't want to suffer if I do have a reaction. I don't think I will feel OK with doing food trials until I'm certain I can take care of the pain.
