Dr. Oz's 5 Dangerous Food and Medication Combinations
Be careful...if you take monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). MAOIs such as phenelzine or tranylcypromine are a type of antidepressant medication. For people on MAOIs, eating many foods that contain a lot of tyramine could cause a sudden, highly dangerous increase in blood pressure. People taking MAOIs must follow a low-tyramine diet in consultation with their doctor. Tyramine is also not safe with certain antibiotics like linezolid.
