> where would I post a journal?

Hey man, if you take crazy risks like that you will be posting your journal in the obituaries page of the newspaper! :-)

A lot of diet restrictions on the MAOIs are overstated and you need to explore how they work for you but do it SLOWLY. I take an MAOI and I feel I have gone a bit too close sometimes. But I carry an emergency pill to bring the BP down as quickly as possible.

ISTR a post here a long while ago of someone who ate one pepperoni slice on a pizza and then next thing was that she was on her way to the Emergency room at the hospital. An Australian girl?

I think it depends on one's own metabolism and, as you ask, the amount of MAOI you are taking. 15 mg is not a big amount but your response will vary. Some people max out at 45 mg Nardil, others can take over 100 mg.

Meanwhile have a look at this:

http://www.aapcc.org/annual.htm
2002 AAPCC TESS ANNUAL REPORT in "American Journal of Emergency Medicine" (vol 21, number 5, Sept 2003)
Table 22B: Demographic Profile of Exposure cases by Generic Category of Substances and products: Pharmaceuticals (original page 404)

It shows that there are only a handful of deaths each year from MAOI problems but the 20 or 30 MAJOR outcomes are unlikely to be much fun either as they probably include brain damage from a stroke caused by the hypertensive crisis. In 2002 48% of these incidents were unintentional.
