Abstract

Reports of hypertensive reactions from monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI) began to proliferate in the early 1960s. Asatoor did extensive research and found that the combination of an MAOI and a food containing tyramine resulted in the hypertensive interaction ('the cheese reaction'). Because of the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage and death, clinicians were hesitant to use the MAOIs. Although progress on the metabolic effects of MAOIs has been slow, use of clinical information in addition to analysis of bioactive amine content of foods has allowed the formulation of dietary recommendations, which are thought to be useful clinically in the administration of MAOIs. This has resulted in the gradual return to use of these psychotropic compounds.
