Regarding the best drug to carry around:
The manufacturer currently recommends the Phentolamine (Regitine) to which you alluded, at a dosage of 5 mg administered intravenously. IV is not my idea of a good time plus given some of the places I go I can't always be sure of getting to a hospital that quickly.
Like you, I carry around with me Nifedpine (Procardia). Have never used it, though. Be careful about it melting in hot weather if carried in a glove compartment of a car (as with all encapsulated forms of medicine).
I used the Mellaril and as I said, it worked. One must be careful about taking too much of this as it can lower your blood pressure to a dangerous level as well.
I'll try to compile a list of food do's and don'ts within a few days. One of the folks who posted in this link recently put up some good web sites, although they all vary in degree of restrictivity. The manufacturer's is overally restrictive, as you would expect, given its desire to avoid any possible liability.
