Tranylcpromine is categorized as a Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor (MAOI) drug.

MAO stands for Monoamine Oxidase, which is an enzyme responsible for metabolizing neurotransmitters such as Serotonin and Norepinephrine. MAO Inhibitors work by interfering with the MAO enzyme, therefore increasing the concentrations of various neurotransmitters, such as Serotonin, Epinephrine, Dopamine and Norepinephrine. 

MAO Inhibitors are so effective at preventing the MAO enzymes from metabolizing neurotransmitters that they can have serious consequences when combined with various over-the-counter items and foods. Due to the potential for serious dietary and drug interactions, MAOIs are prescribed less frequently than other classes of antidepressant medication.

The list of interactions items with MAO Inhibitors is extensive.  The increase of Norepinephrine (a powerful blood vessel constrictor) can become dangerously high and prove fatal if MAOs are combined with the following: (list is not comprehensive, check with your pharmacist or medical professional for additional items to avoid)

  • Pseudoephedrine (nasal decongestant)
  • Amphetamine or Dextroamphetamine
  • Naphazoline or Oxymetazoline (in nasal sprays)
  • Isometheptene (in prescription drug Migranal)
  • Meperidine (ingredient in Demerol, for pain)
  • Eye drops with decongestants
  • Herbal products with stimulants
