    Thank you, Dee! There has been considerable debate and research about the question how much of a risk there is to develop high blood pressure with tyramine-containing foods when taking rasagiline, a selective MAO-B inhibitor. Both clinical studies and clinical experience support that it fortunately is not usually a concern as long as rasagiline is taken at the recommended dose (up to 1mg per day). The US labeling for rasagiline was updated to reflect that tyramine reactions are not ordinarily required at the recommended rasagiline dose. So as long as you don’t go overboard with aged cheeses and other tyramine-containing foods, you should not run into problems. And of course, always discuss questions about your medication with your physician and/or pharmacist.
