> I have generally had no problems with the Cheddar cheese slices. But then again I don't have more than 2-3 slices at a time. However with COON & Mainland Gouda as well as shredded tasty cheese in general I have to exercise caution. I too like like these and can eat a 250gm block in one hit. For this indulgence I sometimes pay very dearly. In the last 2 days I made the mistake of making myself a "Healthy meal" without considering the total content, rather than the individual content of the ingrediants. The onset of the pain was not typical and I compounded the problem by taking a Sudafed tablet because I thought it was a hayfever reaction. I have had almost no sleep and suffered a great deal during this time. So with our love of cheese it is still a case of eater beware. I have at times realised that when I would have expected some sort of consequences, they have not occured. I am thinking that there is a posibility that this situatiuon was a result of the food combinations that I had at the time. I'm still working on this one, as the mittigating factors are many and varied, as you can see from my list. It could also have been the different retention level of one of the other meds that i'm on, a difference in the time that I took my meds, etc, etc. It could have been wheather or not I have had a bowel motion in the last week,(due to ops I have periods of up to 3 weeks between, this has been for my whole life).

Thanks for the reply Cornycon :) I guessed that the processed slices would be OK for a slice or two, but they don't have any age & therefore tyramine or flavour :( I have seen mention recently that provolone was OK, have you had an experience with it? The second webpage is fairly harsh, I can't believe that you can't have tomatoes!? They don't have much protein so how can they contain tyramine?

I have atypical depression, I am taking Efexor+Avanza & am feeling realtively happy, but I still have zero motivation & drive. Everything I have read so far indicates to me that Parnate is the 'gold standard' for atypical/anergic depression, but if an MAOI diet has to be as harsh as that second webpage suggests then I don't think I could do it.

Cheers,
Panda.
