> > > > I have been on Parnate almost 3 years. The first time I forgot the dietary restrictions and ate a piece of pizza I expected the worst. Nothing happened. Now I cautiously ignore them. By that I mean that I don't go out of my way to eat things I shouldn't; and if I eat something on the restricted list, I do it in small quantities and watch for any side effects. I don't drink wine, and completely avoid "aged" cheese--which are supposed to be 2 of the worst. (I am not advocating that anyone else do this, I'm just sharing my experience.)

I do avoid forbidden things that I can take or leave. Like Kim said, I'm not advocating this. I just don't want the "theorical dietary restrictions" to keep anyone from trying this medicine if they fit the profile. I avoided it for several years for that reason.

Thank You to those who have responded to my post on this board. I have a few more questions is the dizziness with Parnate because it lowers your blood pressure? How long do you think before it goes away. I could not even make it to work yesterday.How many mgs is the average dose? Do you think it hurts to take them all at once? Is ther anything to raise blood pressure to help with the dizziness?
