I was given one pill called Amitriptyline 10 mg for pain, not for what it's used for.
Now what foods, enzymes pills or other would I need to consume that would bring back my natural level of monoamine oxidase (MAO) in my brain if I don’t get enough? What’s the safe amount and for how long to take since I don’t want to later get too much of MAO to cause brain damage?
After taking an MAOI to now not be able to break down the left over serotonin in the synapses either by not producing enough enzymes in the cleft, (monoamine oxidase (MAO) and catechol-o-methyl transferase (COMT)) or there’s too much serotonin to be broken down. Maybe there’s also too much adrenaline or noradrenaline. adrenaline, noradrenaline adrenaline, noradrenaline
