Antidepressant: Nardil (phenelzine) aka Phenelzine is an antidepressant called MAO inhibitors which increase norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin. Requires careful monitoring and has dietary restrictions. Eating cheese, yogurt, dry sausage, liver, sauerkraut, chocolate, caffeine or drinking alcohol or non-alcoholic beer or wine may cause a hypertensive crisis. Many medications should also be avoided. Talk to your doctor.
