Re: Just Got Nardil (What Can I Eat)
The diet is definitely not as restrictive as you might think. I was on parnate for several years, and consumed a lot of the stuff on the "do not eat" list. I drank red wine, beer, most cheeses, soy (protein powder, not anything fermented), chocolate, etc. The only time I had trouble was one Christmas when I decided to try out some VERY aged blue cheese and some aged meat and beer all in oneday, and ended up with the worst headache of my life. I admit..it was a moment of complete stupidity! I thought I was going to die. I went to the ER, but they had never heard of MAOI hypertensive crises. Plus, by the time they got me in to see the doctor, my blood pressure was almost normal. They just sent me on my way, and charged me several thousand dollars. So, definitely avoid aged meats/cheeses at least at one time!
PS: the foods on your shopping list are all fine
