Hi there! My name is Courtney and i'm new here. My pdoc wants to start me on Parnate in a couple of weeks after trying every other SSRI out there. Have read through tons of stuff in internet about MAOIs and it sounds a little scary. Not so much worried about diet. I'm a vegetarian, so I will have to do some adjustments, never ate soy products much anyway. Love chocolate, so that will be a biggie. My major concern after reading everyones posts are about high blood pressure. If I already have high blood pressure, does that mean that I don't take BP meds while on parnate? The BP med I take is Benazapril, which is on the list of no-no's. So I'm confused. Is it while taking parnate that you don't need BP meds? Also, I don't understand what you mean by having hypertension and hypotension at the same time. Could someone please explain to me. Also too, when you do get a cold, all I have been able to find is what you can't take. Could someone tell me what you can take thats safe?

Thanks so much for the help!
