Re: Zelnorm + Nardil = Hypertensive episode?

>>> I have heard of people drinking beer with Nardil ... but not 4-5 of them. Try things in moderation with an MAOI. For instance I love cheese! Love it! But we are not supposed to eat it. So I tried a 2 x 2 piece and nothing happened. I did the same the next week and I was able to eat a bit more with no reaction. But I am not going to push it now.

really? I've conversed with plenty of folk who drink several draught beers on a regular basis. I'm not that reckless, I only used to have 1 before switching to bottled beer. You did read the links I posted yes? All of them say that bottled beer is pretty much safe. Therefore I see no reason not to drink bottled beer.

BTW you be careful too! I've read several sources that say that the following can happen :
- have some tyramine-containing food (e.g. aged cheese). No reaction.
- have same amount 14 times more. No reaction.
- 16th time - bang - reaction.
I've not read why this can happen, just that it's been observed.

What's a 2x2 piece? BTW you are also aware that American and Mozarella cheese are also OK to eat? They have very low levels of tyramine. Probably why they have no taste :/ I eat turkey&American cheese sandwiches every day at work (boring, I know but I have IBS also).

> I don't think it was Zelnorm, but the beer.

But on what basis? And how does this explain the headache I got on Friday after not even 1 bottle of Heineken, of which I've drank literally 100's during the last year on Nardil? Makes no sense.

> It's scary that you are still having problems with headaches. I would stop the med and see your doctor because what you describe sounds like a heart attack ir stroke looming in the background.I am sure he will be able to help you.

Respectfully but No way! I'll stop alcohol or anything else before I stop Nardil. It gave me life. Without it I'd rather be dead anyway.

> I take Parnate and my pdcoc says that if I am having headaches at the back of my head to stop the Parnate and see him. Back of the head seems to be key.
> I hope you can sort everything out.

Thanks for your kind regards. So far today (fingers crossed) my headache has gone. I also happen to have a stinking cold and that's laid off a little too which is a relief!
