Otherwise people would have the same reaction to nardil, parnate, selegiline, etc. I would think they all have their own additional subtle mechanisms.
> I don't think the dietary restrictions are a big deal. When was the last time anyone died from a hypertensive crisis brought on by a wine and cheese party? I'd be more worried about weight gain and sexual dysfunction. Not like I know, but I may be presented with the MAOI option soon.
> I.

You shouldn't be concerned about weight gain...depression is far more debilitating...not everyone gains weight on nardil, I never did.
