Questions about MAOI interactions. Answered
My friend and I have been working on a project, and this project has required a lot of research. I've been able to figure out most of what I need to know and now there is only one major issue left. That has to do with monoamine oxidase inhibitors.
I've done some research and found a few helpful websites here and here. At the first website I found that "If you stop taking an MAOI, you should not start taking another antidepressant for two or three weeks." So, does that mean MAO inhibitors stay in your system for two to three weeks? Also, does that mean that all of the "Foods to Avoid" from the second website should be avoided for the full duration of the two to three weeks?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
