Drug induced histamine issues

I came across an interest article on enteral-induced histaminosis (Histaminosis: Studies on Three Prognostic Variables in an Epidemiological Model) which identifies some drugs that inhibit DAO production.

This lead me to this page which gives a fuller list with citations.

Bottom Line

The list are items that you should NOT take because they reduce DAO and can result in fatal histamine reactions if you already have histamine issues. Decision to stop any should be done in consultation with your medical professional.
