Antipsychotic Medications and MAOI - Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI's) are antidepressant medications that when taken with phenylalanine may cause a sharp and sudden rise in blood pressure, leading to death.
In some cases, a doctor may prescribe antidepressants or monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI), depending on the patient's specific needs.
For example, taking an MAOI antidepressant with certain nonprescription cold medications can produce a dangerous reaction.
Patients taking Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, known as MAO Inhibitors (MAOI) should not take this drug.
