If other antidepressants have failed, your healthcare provider may prescribe a drug called Parnate® (tranylcypromine sulfate). This product has several potentially lethal drug and food interactions, and is often used as a last resort.
This medication comes in the form of a tablet and is generally taken two or three times a day. Parnate is approved for use in adults only. Dizziness, blurred vision, and dry mouth are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
