Tremendously helpful info. The fear factor with MAOis and diet has been making me crazy since I am a vegan (except for the occasional steak or sliver of parmesan.)
My pdoc says soy milk is OK and I have been drinking it regularly. Wouldn't it make sense that soy ice cream is OK? And I would figure fresh frozen soy beans (edamame a Japanese favorite) would also be OK.
The tofu thing is much harder to figure out since my pdoc says it's OK if it has been in the refrigerator for a couple of days. What I can't figure out is when those days begin. When it's made, put in the fridge at the store, put in my fridge?
Interestingly, my doc put me on Cytomel (a thyroid hormone) to bridge time inbetween getting off prozac and wellbutrin. My normally low/normal tyroid function went off the map and I have never felt better! I normally take 200mgs of Provigil a day and haven't touched the stuff since the Cytomel took hold. A friend of mine who is on Synthroid says that in general your throid should be high normal if you want to feel an increase in energy. Once my level settles back down I am making a bee line for a good endocrinologist.
