Hi Elizabeth

> If you can get your medical records from this incident, it might be worthwhile to see what your measured BP was.

Saw the Doc and debriefed re HC -- we are requesting data from ER to evaluate. She, like you, Elizabeth, thought there MUST be something else going on.

> They wouldn't want to do something that could cause much more serious complications ("do no harm" and all) if your BP isn't (in their judgment) really dangerously high.

You and my Doc see eye to eye on this. :-)

> The food lists are silly. I used evidence-based dietary rescrictions, rather than basing my food selections on what amounts to rumour.

You had a modified list, which you posted once. Would you mind posting it again? Do you think you are one of the folks who is less affected by diet? I read individuals vary on their tolerance to tyramine, just like everything else, I guess.

> MAO takes about a week to return to normal; the conservative washout period is 2 weeks. I hope you don't get any withdrawal symptoms; they can be pretty bad.

Thanks. I had a recurrent headache at mid afternoon and roughly twelve hours after, waking about 2 or 3 each night feeling headache-y and weird. Nothing like as horrendous as Paxil withdrawal. Worst thing ever.

Cheers, thanks for yours,
