> You're not suppossed to drink beer. I love beer !!! Any thoughts?

Stevie,

go to the Emsam med guide: http://www.emsam.com/pdf/medguide.pdf

At the top of page 2 is a chart of foods to avoid. As for beer it says to avoid "All tap beers, and other beers that have not
been pasteurized." In the column for Acceptable Foods and Drinks, Containing No or Little Tyramine, it says "As with other antidepressants, concomitant use of alcohol with EMSAM is not recommended. (Bottled and canned beers and wines contain little or no tyramine.)"

In any event, the dietary restrictions only apply when you go up to the 9mg or 12mg patch; they don't apply to the 6mg dose.

Hope that helps,
mayzee
