selegiline ↔ food
Applies to: selegiline
While you are taking selegiline, you must not eat or drink certain foods and beverages that are high in tyramine. Eating these foods while you are taking selegiline can raise your blood pressure to dangerous levels. This may cause life threatening symptoms such as sudden and severe headache, confusion, blurred vision, problems with speech or balance, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, seizure (convulsions), and sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body). Call your doctor at once if you have any of these symptoms. Foods that are high in tyramine include: air dried meats, aged or fermented meats, sausage or salami, pickled herring, and any spoiled or improperly stored beef, poultry, fish, or liver, red wine, beer from a tap, beer that has not been pasteurize, aged cheeses, including blue, brick, brie, cheddar, parmesan, romano, and swiss, sauerkraut, over the counter supplements or cough and cold medicines that contain tyramine, soy beans, soy sauce, tofu, miso soup, bean curd, fava beans, or yeast extracts (such as Marmite).,2051-0

Thats really interesting, because my other interaction checker says caution advised, may lead to hypertensive crisis. I would check with my dr tomorrow if I were you. He may not have intended you to keep taking the selegeline. free discount card
