I was recently prescribed the MAOI antidepressant phenelzine after having had little luck with various SSRIs, SNRIs and a tricyclic antidepressant, and have also been considering trying out Huel due to not really having the requisite energy to feed myself properly in a more conventional sense at the moment and because my weight is plummeting into the underweight category with alarming rapidity.
So naturally I wonder whether Huel contains much tyramine and whether it’s safe for someone on an MAOI. Having looked at the ingredients, I feel it’s probably not too dangerous, but I know very little about nutrition, and so I thought it best to seek clarification on this point before placing an order. Anyway, my question is do I risk some sort of dangerous hypertensive episode if I eat Huel while taking an MAOI?
I was a bit surprised not to see any topics about this when I searched, and I hope that I didn’t overlook a topic or part of the FAQ and waste your time with a redundant question. I’m very sorry if that should happen to be the case.
Thank you for reading.
