All the information about Selegiline says it is totally safe at the reccommended low dose.
My husband had hypertensive crises, diagnosed as TIAs inspite of that and in spite of no problems on MRI scan. We ended up with a season ticket to A & E which was impossible.
Careful and lengthy searches on Google found the words "usually" which led to the information that there are sometimes peculiar reactions.. We cut out a whole list of tyramine containing foods and the TIAs went. His was an atypical reaction which is rare but does sometimes happen. The Selegiline was stopped, he is back on a normal diet and no TIAs for over two years
Tyramine forms in foods as they age. This is why wine and cheese and all sorts of preserved foods like "summer sausage" are high- and also banana skins
. Tyramine is not a baddie in itself - it just needs to be in balance.
Anyway it just goes to prove whatthey all tell us- everyone is differentand for us Selegiline is a NO. For other people its a YES
