> I'm starting a trial with Parnate tomorrow. There's a lot of contradicting information about foods containing potentially dangerous levels of tyramine. Does anyone have a current and "definitive" list of foods to avoid?

There is no such thing. Nothing is absolute. Remember that you're not going to have 100% inhibition of MAO, so your body can still metabolize these amines, but at a slower rate. The important consideration is the amount. No foods are dangerous if the amount is small enough, so the key is to very slowly titrate upwards while learning how you respond. I'm no longer on Parnate, but at one point I was taking 80 mg of Parnate + 30 mg Dexedrine/day, and there was never anything I couldn't eat. I never felt any symptoms even mildly resembling an acute bout of hypertension.

Good luck.
