Re: URGENT! WHAT AM I ALLOWED TO EAT WHILE ON NARDIL?
Eat some Blue Cheese w/ soy sauce , aged cheeder cheese crackers, and a nice bottle of aged wine.
NO IM KIDDING DON'T DO THAT. THOSE ARE THE WORST THINGS TO EAT!
Actually if she did eat that what would would happen. I know what your not supposed to eat and sorta why, hypertensive crisis but what actually happens if someone goes into a full blown cheese crisis. I read a story on how a girl of some rich parents went to the hospital, while she was on nardil and got a shot of demerol (why do they still have that stuff, crappy pain killer anyways) and she went straight into a hypertensive crisis. All I know is she started to act psycotic, they did not know what was going on because they did not know she was on nardi, and before she died they gave her antipsychotics I believe.
I heard this marked the end to nardil.. the parents were very upset and eager to spread the news, as they should have been. I just wish they did not scare the doctors so much, maybe they could of just educated them on synthetic opiates, some other drugs and thats it, all drugs cant react with others ones..maybe they should of said something about the food, but only the MAJOR ones that have an overload in tyramine. If people did not scare docs so much we would be getting this stuff today, as my doctor said they are the best antidepressants im just SCARED to give them out. No one wants a lawsuit.
Also I heard some people carry some major tranqs on them (antipsychotic) incase a hypertensive crisis happens. They beleive this will reverse it. If so, then why did this poor girl die?
I would think that catapress would work good. I once took like 5 of those one time at coney island, everyone around me was laughing because my face fell down into my cheese fries.
Here is the food not to eat, everyone here says they can eat pretty much anything they want but blue cheese, but I dont know. If i was you I would get one of those braclets, and if those are too dorky here is med card you can print up and put in your purse/wallet. On the website it has a form you fill out that even include your doctors name, someone who you would like to contacted and of course all your medications, like nardil.
Im on suboxon so I carry one because if I was ever hit since the sub saturate the opiate receptors there is no room left for the pain meds to get past, so they would have to use insane amount of opiates to get past the blockade. Plus I have a rare disorder called cylical vommiting syndrome which doctors don't know **** about.
•Any red meat, poultry, or fish that may be spoiled or that has not been stored properly
•Mortadella, pastrami, pepperoni, salami, summer sausage, and any other similar sausages or meats
•All aged cheese -- the only cheeses that are okay are cottage cheese, cream cheese, mozzarella (part-skim), ricotta, and processed cheese (such as American), although these should not be eaten if they have been stored (in the refrigerator) for more than two or three weeks
•All protein supplements, including liquid or powdered protein products
•Fermented soy products, including soy sauce, teriyaki, miso soup, tamari, and any other similar products
•All tap beer
•Broad bean or fava pods
•Yeast extracts or supplements (regular yeast used in baking is okay)
•Chianti wine and vermouth.
Some foods can be eaten sparingly (no more than two servings total per day) if your healthcare provider approves. These foods include:
•Wine (one serving is 4 ounces), other than chianti wine or vermouth
•Distilled spirits or liqueurs (one serving is 1.5 ounces)
•Bottled or canned beer, including non-alcoholic beer (one serving is 12 ounces)
Large amounts of caffeine or chocolate should be avoided in people taking Nardil. Although caffeine does not contain tyramine, it can cause problems with dangerously high blood pressure. Ask your healthcare provider about limiting your intake of caffeine-containing products, such as soft drinks, coffee, and tea.
•Always make sure your food is very fresh
•Be on the lookout for "hidden" tyramine products, especially in restaurant foods (such as soy sauce in stir-fry) or prepackaged products (such as cheese crackers)
•Never, under any circumstance, eat anything that you suspect may be spoiled.
Although these food recommendations may seem rather restrictive, it is important to follow them in order to avoid dangerous reactions while taking Nardil for depression.
(don't be too worried someone here eat cheese pizza, and wendy cheseburgers, also you can cheat with caffiene and chocolate, no girl can go without that anyways)
