> 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...

I'm a little confused. The pain medicine will make you feel better but it won't help with a blood pressure spike. Did your doctor prescribe an emergency pill? For example, if I start having a reaction I take Chlorpromazine (Thorazine). It will bring down my blood pressure if necessary but won't harm me if my blood pressure isn't spiking. That has nothing to do with pain control (other than shortening my reaction). It is very necessary to prohibit a heart attack or stroke though.


ps - most foods I know of aren't controversial if you look into the most recent tyramine levels. It's only if you're looking at an old study and a new study that there is conflict. I always go with the latest information and haven't had a single problem.
