Re: MAOI Diet Addendum

Hi Elizabeth

Am also glad for the posting re diet restriction and MAOI. Have not been able to locate a definitive list, which alas cost me dearly.

I had a hypertensive crisis after consuming one bottle of a local micro brewery beer. (Per my research, one beer, fresh, should have been ok.) The hypertensive crisis was exactly as described in the literature -- very scary. Tried to tell the emerg team about Nifedipene but they believed nothing of what I said. Because I could not speak very loudly, the Doc declared I made no sense. Eventually, he ordered intravenous Ativan, Gravol, and morphine.

The whole emergency experience was condescending and punitive -- this at a place and time where the impact of such bigotry is most damaging.

[Did you experience HC on MAOIs? I faintly remember a posting of yours dealing with emerg teams.]

Thanks, Elizabeth, for your thoughts re grogginess and parnate. I talked to the Doc who recommended Cytomel and upped the Parnate to 20 mg, [10 mg 2x day.] Now I am wondering if this lowered my threshold for HC. Before upping the dose of Parnate and adding Cytomel, I had been able to drink 1 canned beer without incident or reaction. I note there are occurrences of spontaneous HC in the research I did this a.m. (under MAOIs in high doses and with stimulants, www.dr-bob/tips).

Do you have any thoughts on this? Thanks as always,
