Ozanimod may be taken with or without food and there is no need to avoid most foods and beverages during treatment with ozanimod. However, while you are taking ozanimod, you must not eat or drink certain foods and beverages that are high in tyramine.

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).
