This level is variable and is dependant on the growing environment, contact with insects (they stimmulate response mechanisims as well as depositing protiens onto and into the fruit), stage of development and control sprays used during the growth cycle.

It appears that with small doses of this drug the MOAB levels are inhibited to the extent that significant levels of Tyramine can be tolerated before there is any reaction.

Thanks for the heads up Cornycon. :) I won't be self medicating as that costs too much money that I don't have ATM.

A snip from that page http://www.psyweb.com/Drughtm/tranyl.html

"Uses: Treatment of major depressive episode without melancholia. Not a first line of therapy; is used when clients have failed to respond to other drug therapy. Investigational: Alone or as an adjunct to treat bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, and manifestations of psychotic disorders. Also, treatment of social phobia, seasonal affective disorders, adjunct to treat multiple sclerosis, and to treat idiopathic orthostatic hypotension (e.g., Shy-Drager syndrome) refractory to conventional therapy."

This med looks nearly like it was made for me as I am having a "major depressive episode without melancholia"(Atypical) + some social phobia + some problems with obsession + nil drive or motivation. I guess if I end up on Parnate I will soon work out what I can & can't have to eat. :)

Cheers,
Panda.
