I think liver of any kind for some reason has more tyramine in it. But I could be wrong.
I got a terrible headache, but I attributed it at the time to some dental work I had done that week. I took a Vicoprofen that had been prescribed by the dentist, but it didn't help at all. I just rode it out. My cousin is a massage therapist, and she tried to help, but nothing did. I finally left early, and by the time I got home my BP was running about 129/75, which is a tiny bit high for me, but still normal.
I used to get migraines a lot, which actually have gone away with Nardil. So this wasn't any worse. I didn't realize it might have been a hypertensive crisis (or maybe just concern? ;) until a week or two later.
I've never had another one.
