How high was your blood pressure?

Parnate does potentiate the pressor response to tyramine more than Nardil does, and occasionally someone will experience significant rises in BP on Parnate alone (i.e., without any food interaction). My experience has been that this is best avoided by splitting the dose (taking no more than 10 mg in a single dose).

I can also easily see how adding stimulant-like drugs (such as thyroid hormones) could increase the risk of hypertension.
