Amy:

We have to stop meeting like this. People are going to start to talk. LOL

Thanks to the updated info I found through many knowledgeable PB-ers, it turns out that the standard dietary restriction list is mostly wrong. Tyramine is the food by-product that needs to be avoided or consumed in small amounts for most users of MAOIs. Some people are more sensitive. I've eaten small amounts of aged cheese with no problem, like many others. Tons of stuff on the current outdated no-no list contain little or no tyramine at all; coffee, alcoholic beverages (except tap beer), chocolate, raisins, bananas, raspberries, sour cream, and tea, to name a few.

This updated info is not generally known to doctors because most stopped prescribing MAOIs based on the old info and the advent of "safe" ADs like Prozac, etc.. But you'll see many posts on this board where MAOIs have been very effective, especially for treatment-resistant depression (like mine). Doctors had better catch up in order to better serve their patients. But good old self-education, I believe, is necessary for us to be informed mental health consumers.
