In reply to Drinking while on Nardil..., posted by daryl2926 on August 19, 2008, at 14:56:53
> I am meeting an old friend this week and will probably be drinking a few bottles of beer. However I have just started Nardil (60mg a day)5-6 days ago. I understand that I need to be cautious drinking too much because of the Tyramine content (will be drinking from bottles not Tap) But I am concerned that this may affect my progress with the Nardil kicking in. I have heard that drinking Alcohol while on SSRI's stops them working, but is this the same for MAOI's like Nardil? Will having a few bottles of beer stop the Nardil from working properly? (Bearing in mind also that this is only one occasion)
I have never heard taking alcohol stops Nardil from working. Just been on Nardil for five days myself. If you stay away from tap bear, some wines, and do not drink much, I think you will be fine. I do not drink any alcohol while on Nardil, but that's just because my brain feels a bit foggy these days. Good luck with the Nardil and meeting your friend!
