Thank you so much for this information! I have lost several pounds since staring Parnate almost a month ago due to fear of putting anything hazardous into my mouth! I gave up red wine (my favourite), beer, pizza, nachos with cheese & sour cream... I read on one web site that wine was okay, but only quantities of 1/2 cup or less!
I'm hoping that someone can address several other MAOI issues. Regarding Parnate, I have notice an increase in anxiety/nervousness. For someone taking this for SP, this is quite unwelcome. Any idea if this will dissipate? Also, I don't feel any benefits although it's been almost a month. I'm on the min. dosage. Could it really take over a month to begin feeling benefits? Also, has anyone tried Corona, an imported beer from Mexico, on an MAOI? It's not a dark beer so I'm wondering if it might be okay.
