I deal with migraines and the doctor suggested a "headache" diet eliminating many foods containing tyramine. To be honest, I had a hard time with the list and told him as much. Try this site: https://headaches.org/resources/low-tyramine-diet-for-individuals-with-headache-or-migraine/

Sounds like you are perhaps dealing with a health condition. If you are concerned about how the drugs you are taking interact with food, I encourage you to speak with your doctor or pharmacist, as URBANREDNECK suggested. If you are dealing with a chronic condition, getting a referral to a Registered Dietitian would be wise. Your doctor should be able to help you out.

I'm not having any success in finding information on a possible negative effect of interaction between tyramine-rich foods and antibiotics. There seems to be extensive research showing that tyramine-rich foods need to be avoided when taking MAOIs (which are anti-depressant drugs), but nothing indicating that there might be an issue with antibiotics.

I strongly recommend that you discuss the specific drug that you are taking with your pharmacist, and have them review with you all possible food / drug / herb interactions that could impact that specific drug.

I haven't heard of it in relation to antibiotics, however the tyramine rich foods (red wine being one) are well know to trigger headaches.

Googling tyramine rich foods and then working your menu around them shouldn't be too hard.

Good luck,
Kris

How am I 50 and I'm just now learning about Tyramine Rich foods and the impact it has on antibiotics??

Anyone else familiar? I've been trying to find "diet menus" for this and info seems scarce... Does anyone have anything?


Thanks in advance!!
