> There is no such thing. Nothing is absolute. Remember that you're not going to have 100% inhibition of MAO, so your body can still metabolize these amines, but at a slower rate. The important consideration is the amount. No foods are dangerous if the amount is small enough, so the key is to very slowly titrate upwards while learning how you respond. I'm no longer on Parnate, but at one point I was taking 80 mg of Parnate + 30 mg Dexedrine/day, and there was never anything I couldn't eat. I never felt any symptoms even mildly resembling an acute bout of hypertension.

That's an unusual combination--MAOIs are supposed to be incompatible w/ stimulants.

It's true what you say about titrating up. That's what I did with soy sauce. What I've read about cheese made me decide to avoid it entirely, though. There's no way to tell how much tyramine there is in a particular piece of cheese.
