  • Perceived effectiveness for Other: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I took this whenever I had a hyperintensive crisis due to Contraindications for MAOI's, such as aged meats or cheeses, Soy, or anything else containing tyramine. I had a hyperintensive crisis once when I took cold medication that contained pseudoephedrine. Not fun. I quickly took Nifedipine, and it calmed down within 10 minutes. Two tips. After my crisis, my doctor said that if it should happen again, I should chew the pill, which will quicken the effectiveness. And secondly, I bought a small medication keychain, so that no matter where I was, I would always have access to the pill. You never know what food is spoiled or has ingredients in it that you wouldn't think it would. I had a very mild crisis when I ate some pastry twists, which must have had enough of a trace of soy in it to give me a small reaction, but not enough to list on the ingredients.
