Deli meats are fine except for aged meats like salami. Also old or rotting meats must be avoided, but they should be avoided anyway, for lots of reasons. Alcohol is okay, especially white wine, if used in moderation.

Beers are dangerous, especially drafts. I don't think it was the zelnorm but the draft. The reason drafts are more dangerous than bottled beer is that the tubes aren't always cleaned and this causes a build-up of tyramine. So you can have a draft in one place and be fine and then go to another pub and have a problem.

By the way, if you went to a hospital in the US, they would do the same thing. Keep you in the ER, monitor BP, watch for signs of stroke or dangerous BP levels, then send you home. It's just that I'd rather hang around the ER for a few hours than hang around at home if I had a severe occipital headache (back of head).

Like Maxine, I have cheese sometimes in small amounts. I am careful though and don't want to push the envelope. My p-doc told me that these food restrictions are tendencies, not certainties. If the were certainties (pepperoni cheese and chianti = death) no one would ever precribe an MAOI.
