> 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!

Jeez. There's no evidence that *any* wine is dangerous with MAOIs. There is one thing on your list there that you might want to be cautious about: the nachos. Sometimes restaurants use cheddar cheese, which is something you should generally avoid (while on MAOIs, that is).

> 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?

I'd expect it to, yes. You might back off to a lower dose and then increase it slower.

> Also, I don't feel any benefits although it's been almost a month. I'm on the min. dosage.

What do you mean by "the min. dosage?" I certainly think it's possible you would do well on a higher dose.

> 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.

I'm not sure that the color of the beer has any relationship to tyramine content. But I can't say anything about Corona specifically, sorry.
