It may well be that the FDA is being overly cautious with regard to rasagiline; I understand that Teva intends to conduct a study to determine whether high-tyramine foods are a concern with MAOB inhibitors. In the meantime, though, I would advise prudence. It is possible that some individuals may be more susceptible than others.
If you’d like to try these foods, I would discuss it with your doctor, and ask to be monitored closely. I would also familiarize yourself with the signs of hypertensive crisis. I’m hoping very much that future study will determine that these foods are not a risk, but until then, I’d rather be on the safe side.
