A friend of mine is currently taking an MAOi called "Parnate" every so often she goes through depression, and it seems as if Parnate is not enough or simply does not work. Her doctor wants to move her to Marplan. I would like to know if anyone is on there or has any good information pertaining to it. I of course will look this up and ask the doctor a lot more about it. I just would like to get opinions on people who are or may have taken it at one time. Thank you in advance. Answered by Lourdes Rhymes 2 years ago.
Marplan is used for treatment resistant depression, although I would question its use in the case of someone going through depression every so often. It is usually used in chronic major depression, not for someone going through depressive episodes intermittently in my experience. It is often less desireable than many other antidepressants because it often requires from 2-4 doses per day, as opposed to many others that are a single dose daily. Given that the depression is periodical for your friend, it is important that bipolar is not a consideration in diagnosis as it is not suitable for those with bipolar (risk of increasing manic/depressive episodes). It is not a drug that I personally would be willing to take unless all other alternatives have been tried. I would also be interested to know why her dr has gone down the road of MAOi's as the side effects & contraindication of these drugs are often a lot more severe than with the SSRI's. Is it is psychiatrist who is prescribes her medication or a general dr - if not a psychiatrist I would be wanting to see a psychiatrist Answered by Edgardo Goodard 2 years ago.

Heroin's not a prescription drug firstly. The older generation of MAO inhibitors do have side effects with tyramine (cheese, wine containing foods and a whole lot of others) and can cause hypertensive crises (though not in 5 minutes as you alluded to as far as I know). The newer forms of MAO inhibitors tend to have less of a dietary interaction but they're still not usually prescribed. Why is your friend taking Marplan? is it for a mood disorder? It's surprising that she isn't started on the more common classes of mood disorder medications like SSRIs (prozac, celexa..etc.) A lot of drugs are dangerous - yes MAO inhibitors are bad with dietary reactions but no drug is perfectly safe. Answered by Cassi Cabral 2 years ago.
ALL antidepressants have side-effects! Foods with "tyramine" It's an older antidepressant, it came out in 1959. The original manufacturer stopped making it in 1994. "A randomized controlled trial published in December 1988 found that isocarboxazid significantly reduced binging and purging in bulimia nervosa, regardless of the presence or absence of depression or personality disorder." With today's new medications it's really a last resort. > "Does anyone disagree, b/c it MAO inhibitor seems extremely dangerous. " Even the tricyclics will elevate blood pressure, and other side effects. To be chemically and clinically depressed, life literally stops. Trust me, the precautions your friend puts up is small compared to being severely depressed. As long as she's being monitored closely by a physician she should be ok. It's better she's taking this under a doctor's care rather than "self-medicating". You really can't compare it to taking heroin. Having said this, she should continue to investigate newer medications or combination of meds. Answered by Gerald Netolicky 2 years ago.
MAOIs aren't dangerous, they just have a lot of dangerous interactions. And because you're clearly ignorant of the reality, I'll point out that your friend won't just drop dead if she eats something that's not approved. The possible side effects are myriad and many of them are life threatening, but some of them are more innocuous like sweating. It goes without saying that if your friend feels she'd be better off without the drug then she should discontinue its use. Answered by Viva Dohm 2 years ago.

Are there drugs im not suppose to take with adderall?

Asked by Twanda Bounleut 2 years ago.
well aside from the whole ethical perspective, i got a hold of sum adderall to help me focus when im studying. i know many people here will bomb me with criticism but i go to the best university in the country and if this is what it takes then please bare with me. my only concern is, is there a drug i shouldn't be taking since it may contradict each other and end bad for me? currently i am also on accutane to control my acne. your answers are greatly appreciated so thanks Answered by Yahaira Klingbeil 2 years ago.
MAO inhibitors such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), or selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) within the past 14 days before you take an Adderall can cause life-threatening side effects. not contradicting that i know of, but can end badly. a single 30mg would be sufficient for the day and would be totally safe (i have friends who are prescribed multiple 20mgs a day). i take a 20mg every morning (im 6'3" 190lbs and have absolutely no attention span) and the focusing lasts for about 12 hours and it can keep me awake and alert for about 17 hours.

Monoamine oxidase inhibits what?
Asked by Luna Whitton 2 years ago.
Monoamine oxidase (MAO) oxidizes the monoamine neurotransmitters. I'm sure that really clarifies things, right? Monoamine neurotransmitters are a class of neurotransmitters that includes the catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine), serotonin, and several others. When they're oxidized by MAO, they no longer function. So MAO inhibits the function of several neurotransmitters, including dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. MAO inhibitors are a class of anitdepressants that work by inhibiting the function of MAO (i.e. preventing it from inhibiting the monoamine neurotransmitters). Although this would have an effect on all monoamine neurotransmitters, it's primarily dopamine and serotonin that are tranditionally considered to be the monoamines involved in depression (although some newer antidepressant focus on norephinephrine).
