Hi,
I read about your starting up on MAOIs.Good luck!! I was taking Parnate for 18 years and considered it a life-saver. My only side effects were dry mouth (tolerable), ocassional lightheadedness (from standing up too suddenly--but don't let this scare you) and watch out--WEIGHT GAIN. So keep that in mind as a POSSIBLE side effect. Now, I want to emphasize that after perusing this website and others for countless days and nights, I have come to the conclusion that every patient reacts to every different medication in a different way. I'm telling you only about MY experience, OK? I think Parnate (is that what you're taking?) is fabulous and as long as you're careful about the foods and other meds., you shouldn't worry at all. But what I find a bit disturbing is that in someone's previous post, they said that beer and wine are OK. I was shocked because I had always thought that beer is NOT OK and onlly WHITE wine is OK. There is definitely some leeway on some foods, but you should do as much research as you can on the subject of the forbidden foods. Good luck!
