Hi fellow SAS dwellers, I plan on taking Nardil soon and I iam also quite a bit into working out. Protein requiremts are important in my case and, in addition to almost a liter of skim milk per day, I take about a 120 grams of whey protein isolate powder spread out throughout the day everyday. I need the advice of someone very knowledgeable as my doctor does not know *** about MAOIS and protein supps interactions.

I take whey protein isolate powder( brand : impact whey isolate), mixed with water ( it can be bought flavoured or plain)

Thanks a lot for your informed answers.

I believe whey protein should be fine. Before you start anything new on an MAOI go slow though and watch for reactions.
I second this. I have heard anecdotal reports that people are fine using a soy protein powder. It is not going to give you an instant hypertensive crises like aged meat or aged cheese. Just start with a small amount and than monitor your blood pressure. Than titrate up slowly and watch your BP.

Make sure you look on the label, some whey proteins do have quantities of amino acids and whatnot in them. The whey protein I use has glutamine, tryptophan, tryosine, and other compounds. The quantities may be significant, mine has 504mg of tryptophan per scoop.
