Why tyramine contraindicated with mao inhibitor?

Why tyramine contraindicated with mao inhibitor?

Will cause severe BP: Tyramine in large doses can raise your blood pressure, that can cause a stroke and death. Small doses don't do that because there is enough MAO in your intestinal tract to metabolize the tyramine. When you take a MAO inhibitor, tyramine is no longer metabolized in the gut, so it is free to raise your blood pressure to a very high level. This is less likely to happen with topical MAO called emsam. ...Read more

Is deprenyl any safer than other maois for depression? If I take it and accidentally eat a small amount of tyramine containing food, will I die?

Doubtful: There is a great deal of concern about maoi's such as deprenyl/selegiline. The concern is that ingesting foods such as smoked meats, aged hard cheeses, and fava beans can lead to a hypertensive crisis.
