However, for medication-resistant depression, or for other atypical presentations of depression, tranylcypromine may be prescribed. Parnate is especially effective with patients whose depression is accompanied by anxiety. Tranylcypromine is no longer present in the body after roughly 14 days following the final dose, but this can vary depending on various factors.
Side effects of tranylcypromine may include dizziness tachycardia, weight loss, dry mouth, hypertension, urinary retention, and confusion. These symptoms occur in less than ten percent of patients.
Administration of Parnate, however, is done with caution due to its high rate of potentially dangerous complications. Patients taking tranylcypromine must avoid taking any substances that may further increase levels of serotonin in the brain. Combining Parnate with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor or a tricyclic antidepressant, both of which enhance serotonin expression, may result in a dangerous condition of serotonin overload known as serotonin syndrome. Serotonin syndrome can lead to permanent psychosis in severe cases.
