Stupid Tyramine.

(Whining inside.)



Here's a list of things I should avoid in order to prevent migraines:
  • Wine, especially red.
  • All cheeses except ricotta and cream cheese.  (Especially asagio and parmesan.)
  • Draft beer and/or microbrews.
  • Liqueurs and vermouth
  • Caffeine
  • Aspartame
  • Dried fruit
  • Bananas, figs, avocados, oranges, grapes, raisins
  • Dried fish
  • smoked fish
  • Eggplant
  • All soy products, including soy sauce and teriyaki sauce and miso soup
  • MSG
  • Chocolate

In limited quantities.  Basically, the more tyramine I get, the higher the chance of a migraine and a blood pressure spike.

I didn't mention that the following are also on the list:
  • Pork, especially bacon.
  • Sausage and cured meats.
  • Smoked meats.
  • Any sort of jerky.

Sourdough is a no-no? by muchagecko (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Jan 28, 2011 at 12:15:20 AM EST
Crap. That explains my most recent migraine.


A purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning.
So a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?

Sourdough by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Jan 28, 2011 at 11:11:47 AM EST
It's not so bad as other things.  "Limit quantities" not "don't eat".

That's most of my diet (though I avoid aspartame as I don't like the taste).

my mother's migraines stopped only when she stopped eating bread. She then restarted with cheese and chocolate and no problems... apparently there's something in a lot of commercial breads that just makes everything else more likely to trigger a migraine... but equally I guess that means that Tyramine wasn't actually her problem... 

so I didn't know what tyramine was by garlic (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Jan 28, 2011 at 11:05:34 AM EST
so I looked it up here. Apparently it (with an MAOI) can cause cheese effects, one of which includes migraines.


Yup by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Jan 28, 2011 at 11:13:24 AM EST
And the MAOI causes susceptibility, though some poor bastards like me get the susceptibility without being on the drug.

I get migraines, but not associated with foods.

funny you post this.. by LilFlightTest (2.00 / 0) #15 Sat Jan 29, 2011 at 12:26:23 AM EST
i just had a migraine today. I've discovered that the only real way to avoid them altogether is to be pregnant...and that results in even more nausea.
