It's strange isn't it - I had 2 slices accidentally of pepperoni pizza the other week and didn't feel anything. However when in London I had 1/2 a pint of lager (draught i.e. not bottled) and ended up in hospital. Probably the most severe (headache) pain I've ever experienced.

I just subscribe to whatever's on since he's got the most experience. In a nutshell: no aged/old/stale cheese/meats. I've found "supermarket" cheddar no problem. A bit of Parmesan in meals has been fine too. Similarly "supermarket" soy sauce is no problem but if you got some authentic, expensive Japanese stuff you might be in trouble.

One thing I did learn recently: cooking the potential Tyramine sauce has no effect on the Tyramine. So don't go around thinking that just cos it's cooked, it's been "nuked" :)


I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
