> Hi Elizabeth

Hi :)

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

Jeez, I'm already thinking like one of them. < g >

> You had a modified list, which you posted once. Would you mind posting it again?

Let me see if I can dig it up. I've been quite tired lately (accumulated sleep deprivation, maybe?), which is why I haven't been posting.

> 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.

Oh, no; I had some pretty bad reactions, including a pulmonary hemorrhage once. When I started using the modified diet (the "short list"), things got a lot better, although I never was able to take stimulants with MAOIs.

> 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.

YMMV, as they say! I'm glad it hasn't been too bad for you.
