> to everyone for fielding so many questions for me. The help is enormous and greatly appreciated.

BTW, while it's sensible to be careful with the dietary restrictions -at first - I encourage you not to freak out about them.

The most important thing is that you might have stumbled upon two of psychiatry's most effective (and tragically underused) treatments for depression, and be on your way to healing.

The University of Toronto's revised guidelines are probably the most sensible, a quick Google search turned them up here:

That said, I have never had a hypertensive reaction, spontaneous or otherwise, on any MAOI and I was on a VERY high dose of Parnate.

One thing I would add is that, for me, Parnate worked much quicker than Nardil. (But that's just me.)

The best time of my 20s, and the longest lasting without symptoms, was due to Nardil.

The ONLY reason that remission stopped is because I discontinued it, due to weight gain. I strongly advise you do not do this if Nardil provides you relief.

Agreed 100%. Really, what would some of us have done without PB and the Internet? I shudder to think. This is my favorite mental health forum on the Internet. Isn't a shame we don't have Star Trek transporters? We'd make one hell of a face to face support group. :-)
