Depression Home > Nardil Drug Interactions

Several medications should not be taken with Nardil. Drug interactions may occur if the antidepressant is taken with blood pressure medications; stimulants; most cough, cold, and allergy products; or pressors. These interactions can lead to life-threatening side effects, such as dangerously high blood pressure. Before starting Nardil, tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking to minimize the risk of developing Nardil drug interactions.
