> You will spare yourself alot of unnecessary worry and deprivation if you consult some of the historical posts involving contemporary allowed MAOI diets. Sounds like you are working off of some archaic diet lists! If you do a search under Bobbiedobbs (me) you should find guidance re soy-based products and links to medical studies concerning tyramine and MAOIs.
> I used MAOs for over 20 years (up to 60 mg.) and only had reactions to anchovy paste and decongestants. I regularly consumed alcohol (all forms are OK except draft beer, microbrewed beer and non-alcoholic beer) and the soft cheese such as ricotta and mozarella. But please don't take my word for anything (as I'm sure you won't). Do yourself a favor and spend some time and consult some of the historical posts on this site. Best posters were jessica and elizabeth. You should find some links to these folks earlier in this string. Best of luck. Nardil is a great drug if you excercise proper care.
> p.s. You might also think about carrying one of of the generally recognized antidotes, such as procardia. Sorry can't give you more details but leaving for a week for vacation. good luck. --Phil

To all of those people out there who need information and come to this site, head me and beware.

From the point of view of some of the contributors, there is almost nothing that you can't have with regards food/drink. However annecdotal evidence of people posting to this site show that the sensitivities to foods/drinks is so varied that the broad statement of Phil above is a dangerous message to listen to.

Work it out for yourself, and use the longest list you can find to start with. Then with personal experience you can start to cross items off, post cautions on others and red flag those that are outright a definite no-no.

Too carefull is not good from the dietary aspect, but too free will kill you faster.

I've spent a lot of time with a lot of different problems, requiring their own sets of meds and dietary restrictions, to throw it to the wind by being irresponsable in this area. If you have done your homework with regards your own set of guidelines and follow them at all times (Just like your med routine) then why would you need to carry an antidote.

Continue to strive
