Q: Food restrictions while taking Azilect

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have just started taking Azilect. My only other medication is Requip (4mg, 3 times per day). My doctor provided me with a folder on food restrictions such as cheese, soy sauce, dried meats. One item listed is bouillion and that concerns me since I enjoy soups and they often have a beef or chicken broth. Does that mean I should only have vegetarian soup or cream based? Also, how serious is a bit of grated cheddar cheese on a taco or parmesian blended in a bottled spaghetti sauce?

Dear Friend,

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.
