Description

Indications

Tranylcypromine is employed for alleviating depression in individuals who have not experienced positive outcomes with alternative medications. Belonging to the category of medications known as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tranylcypromine functions by elevating the levels of specific natural compounds crucial for sustaining mental equilibrium.

Uses and Dosage

Tranylcypromine is available in tablet form for oral ingestion and is typically taken twice a day. Maintain consistency by consuming tranylcypromine at approximately the same times each day. Ensure that you adhere precisely to the prescribed instructions.

Be aware that tranylcypromine might lead to habit-forming tendencies. Refrain from exceeding the prescribed dose, altering the frequency, or extending the duration of use without your doctor’s guidance. If you notice an inclination to take extra doses or observe unusual changes in behavior or mood, contact your doctor.

Your doctor will most likely initiate your treatment with a low tranylcypromine dose and gradually increase it, no more frequently than once every 1-3 weeks. Once your symptoms improve, your doctor will likely guide you through a gradual reduction in the dose.

Tranylcypromine effectively manages depression symptoms, though it does not provide a complete cure. It might take up to 3 weeks or more for you to experience the full therapeutic effects of tranylcypromine. Even if you start feeling better, continue taking tranylcypromine. Refrain from discontinuing its use without consulting your doctor. If discontinuation becomes necessary, your doctor will probably recommend a gradual reduction of the dose.
