patient information on dietary modifications
Patient Information on Dietary Modifications
    • A modified diet is not necessary when taking EMSAM 6mg/24 hours (20mg)
    • The consumption of certain foods and beverages during treatment with EMSAM 9mg/24 hours (30mg) or 12mg/24 hours (40mg) dose may lead to a sudden, large increase in blood pressure, called a ‘‘hypertensive crisis’’ (a potentially life-threatening situation). (See What are the possible side effects of EMSAM?)
  • Dietary Modifications:
    • To prevent a hypertensive crisis, the following foods and beverages should be avoided beginning on the first day of EMSAM 9mg/24 hours (30mg) or 12mg/24 hours (40mg) treatment and continue until 2 weeks after a dose reduction to EMSAM 6mg/24 hours (20mg) or stopping EMSAM 9mg/24 hours (30mg) or 12mg/24 hours (40mg):
