Hi I am usually on the lyme board but was wondering if anyone has any palps from tyramine.  Everything I read says food high in tyramine can cause heart palps but usually in people taking antidepressants which are MOIs.  I am on an antidrepressant as well as half dozen other prescriptions trying to get rid of lyme but it seems I am definitely having palps with consumption of chocolate (always did), carnation instant breakfast, liverwurst, cheese, bananas, nonalcoholic beer, nuts, all of which are high in tyramine.  I know my nervous system is all our of whack so maybe since it is a neuro-stimulant that I am hypersensitive to it.  Any help would be appreciated.  have a good day!

Are you taking tyrosine for fatigue or because you suspect you have a thyroid problem ?
 
With your history and your other medications I would strongly urge you to see your Dr.  IMHO it is not wise to mix so many RX meds with natural meds.  You have identified foods and supplements that cause palps - I would eliminate these from your intake and again talk with your Dr.
 
Kindly,

No I am not TAKING tyramine but I think having a reaction from foods that are high in tyramine. I am under the close watch of a lyme doctor. But unfortunately with the controversial disease of lyme, there is not much known about it nor do insurance companies allow proper treatment. Thanks for your help and advice though.
