I just started Parnate last week and had no idea how much was involved in terms of diet. The reality is at this point I am in no position to avoid MAOIs although with all the "do's and dont's" it crossed my mind several times. Long story short - on them about a week and have been reading whatever I can about diet restrictions. All these threads have been very helpful but I haven't found answers on a few of my everyday foods:

Big question about Parmesan Cheese; it would probably be one of the hardest to eliminate from my diet but I can't find a direct reference to it. I am assuming if any parm cheese would be ok it would be a domestic, pasterized version like "Digorno" but I have no idea. Any thoughts or experiences in that area?

Another food question I have is in reference to Mozzarella: I haven't really been able to figure out what the verdict is. I realize there is probably a diference between fresh and regular pasturized "found next to the american slices" mozzarella but would love to hear whatever anyone has to say.

also - what everyday breads do I need to avoid? I would also appreciate any info on other random foods, the ones that don't always show up on the "short lists'.

I really would appreciate any advice or help I can get as I move on to yet a "new and exciting special perk" that only we who are lucky enough to deal w/ severe depression get to experience.

Although my Dr. has been a good resource, I find the guidelines she gave me are still somewhat vague. I am still trying to get used to this whole new "lifestyle". I am ramping up my doses weekly and would love to have it somewhat figured out before my dosage goes up.

Thank you in advance for reading this and for offering any comments or advice you may offer.
