>>> One of the things they say to never use while on nardil is draft beer.
Yeah I know. Such is human nature I guess that some of us get tempted - I just love draft beer. Especially since I was visiting London at the time. My usual regimen when in a pub/bar was always 1 draught pint then bottles. Never even had so much as a hint of a headache. I'm not going to say that I've "learnt my lesson" since I've always known there was a risk but I can say that I'm never, EVER having a draught pint again...

>>> Bottled beer can be okay but is not recommended. Red wine is out. White wine is okay in moderate quantities. There are never use alcohols -- draft beer, vermouth, chianti, a few others.

I drink white wine all the time at home and have had no problems. I feel that if you stick to a few select brands, you're probably going to be alright.

>>> If I had drunk a draft beer and had a severe occipital headache, I'd have gone straight to the ER.

I didn't want to create a fuss (stupidly). I wanted to see if it wasn't very transient before calling in an ambulance. However after 10 minutes of solid excruciating pain I could stand no more and called 999. All they did was monitor my BP since they carry no meds. Then after waiting about 1.5 hours in A&E a doc checked me out for stroke symptoms and that was it. I guess that's what you get for free...

However this is all incidental to my question: why the sudden occurrences? Is it anything to do with taking Zelnorm+Nardil at the same time?
